Reviewed by Karen Pirnot for Readers' Favorite In "In It to Win It," author Steven Lawson presents his ideas on how to get out of the hectic and non-rewarding cultural rat race and into a personal race that honor's God's purpose for us. Basically, the author contends that the rat race is wide open, jam packed, and deadly. Most people tend to buy into the rat race because it is easier than having to search for meaning and purpose in life. As an alternative to the rat race, Lawson proposes that individuals take the narrow road, a road which is oftentimes ill-defined and difficult. It is a path which few people are able to tread and there may be a feeling of loneliness attached to the road. The reward for traveling the narrow path is that you eventually get to the top of the mountain and you have the opportunity to search for the gate and discover what lies beyond. Lawson contends that the narrow path is the only one with true meaning because it is God's way. "In It to Win It" is a well-organized book which sets out to describe the consequences and rewards of consciously choosing a path of personal purpose. There are ongoing hints on how to walk the personal path effectively and also ideas on what to do when you stray from the path. How to avoid sin by allowing God to control your steps through the narrow path is a substantial message throughout the book. Although author Lawson has not said anything the reader has not heard before, he says it in a friendly and forceful manner.
