Failure is one of those things at which all of us excel. And yet, we seldom talk about this subject of our "expertise." Success is the celebrity attracting much attention. But Failure is the outcast living in the closet most of the time- except when he emerges from the closets of others.
Six More Chances takes another look at the failure-whether personal, professional, or spiritual. The book compellingly argues that sebacks in life shouldn't set us back. They are stepping-stones. In stepping on the stones we move upward and forward.
If, as King Solomon says, "a godly person rises again after falling seven times," then the mathematical implication is that after we first fall, we have "six more chances" left! Building upon this concept, the book Six More Chances shows why and how to succeed through failure.
Whenever we experience a major failure, we must not despair, give up, or stay down. Our one fall is not the end of us. For God is not just a God of "second chances", but also a God of "six more chances." Rightly handled, the "mist of failure" will clear and the sunshine of Success will appear.
What people are saying:
“Six More Chances inserts a forgotten arithmetic clause into our spiritual lives and reminds us that with God, what matters is not that we fall, but that we … get up and keep moving!’ This book is a must read for everyone who feels the sting of past and present failures and longs for a way out of the pain.”

I just finished reading this book yesterday--- timely, on point, and needed! Dr. Pipim presents an awesome message with not only 6 More Chances, but much more than 6 More Chances. No matter what your background may be, this book is one that every person seriously needs to digest, especially those in the household of faith. It is not philosophical arguments and nice sayings, but true practical principles that when applied, will give those who are in despair and those enjoying success hope for their journey. It's also humbling and transforming for those who have found themselves sternly judging, criticizing, or condemning the fallen... You too can find solutions and restoration with this new book. I highly recommend it! Thanks Dr. Pipim for sharing this gift with the world. My heart (too) is full.
