Flip through the pages of Scripture, and you'll find you're in good company. Warren Wiersbe unfolds the stories of fifteen Bible characters who struggled just like you-people we now consider high-endurance saints, such as
Abraham, who discovered that outlook determines outcome;
Job, who learned to live on promises, not explanations;
Ruth, who proved that decision and determination influence destiny;
Habakkuk, who faced the facts, but kept walking by faith;
Paul, who found that if you keep growing you can keep going.
With the skill of a master storyteller, Wiersbe draws from the pages of God's Word to give us the strength to survive-and thrive-when the road gets rocky and the pathway steep. Get your second wind from these fifteen faithful lives as you learn that it's too soon to quit!
