    This book is based on Hebrews 12:1 which tells us that “we are surrounded by a great crowd of witnesses” and encourages us to “run with endurance the race that is set before us.” These witnesses include great men and women of faith from the Old Testament. This book explores the lessons we can learn from their lives as well what personal messages each would have for us today as we run our own race in this life.

    Wow, wow, wow...if you need encouragement to run this race, you need to read this book. Being reminded of the giants of the Bible and having pictured that they’re cheering me on is so incredible. I love how deep it goes into the lives of the giants and provides us advice and encouragement from things they went through. It clearly ties Biblical times to today and accurately showcases the relevancy of God’s Word.

    I’ve had this book on myself for a number of years now, and this is the first time I really read it. It has some insightful nuggets, worth remembering. We are all leaders in someway. Taking lessons from some of the Bible’s greatest leaders can help you in your own leadership and in your own development.

    Imagine running a race, and every lap or so, another person comes from the stands to inspire you: Noah, David, Esther and others. Each takes a lap with you, relating his or her life lessons in an easy to understand message. Powerful messages from some of the greats of the Bible, in easy to read and understand format.

    An easy read that summarizes qualities of biblical leaders, some you may never have considered, and the lessons we can learn today from those long ago. This book shows us how the Bible is never outdated. It doesn't dive deep into the Bible, but just enough to prove his points.

    This books provides encouraging examples from people in the Bible. The experiences are from people in various social/economic strandings, from rulers and kings to humble servants. This book is a reminder that we all can make a difference for God in our own lives and in the lives of others.

    Read this book with my daughters in the mornings. Loved that it had questions so you thought about what you had just read. Was a good read and got you thinking about the people in the Bible a different way.

    This book is a very inspiring book. I love how Maxwell features some of the lesser known characters of the Bible to show great leadership qualities. A very uplifting book.

    Lorraine

    A very easy read. Nothing really new about leadership here. However, its linking of leadership lessons to biblical figures provides a great connection between faith and leadership.

    I really enjoyed this book. It was very short but a lot of great reminders. I was definitely encouraged reading through it.

    Inspired. John picks important people and their accomplishments and then draws a motivation quote from their experience.

    This is the biblical root of Maxwell's leadership philosophy and my favorite of his titles. His portraits of the OT giants of faith are surprisingly deep and thus richly encouraging.

    What make your great, great? Have you ever been looking at a sports reporter interview an athlete before or after the game? And the athlete responds with something like, “...it’s a wonderful thing when we have our fans support.” Or what about watching a track & field event; you can feel the excitement of the crowd, the people chatter right before the big event, then the ‘hush’ factor when the announcer is about to start the runners. “Runners on your mark…, get set…, BANG!” The runners are off. T What make your great, great? Have you ever been looking at a sports reporter interview an athlete before or after the game?

The crowd erupts, as their standing to their feet, with yells like, “you can do it…”, “RUN…”, “keep it going…”, “dig deep…”, to their runner. And as a runner, you occasionally hear the special voice of your encourager. And this gives you more assurance which helps you to dig a little deeper because of their support. John Maxwell show you how we have "a great cloud of witness" support group giving us encouragements. Great book!

    I happened upon this quite by accident, but I am very glad I found it! This is a great, uplifting, amazingly creative and well done work. I am really appreciating the deep well of biblical experience and wisdom inside John Maxwell, and that he shares with us! This was surprisingly unique, and brings some of the people from the Old Testament to life, so we can benefit from their experiences and perspective. I was blown away by some of what was shared. I will be repeating this multiple times to mo I happened upon this quite by accident, but I am very glad I found it! This is a great, uplifting, amazingly creative and well done work.

    Each Old Testament Hero, whether David, Solomon, or the little servant girl, inspires you through lessons they learned during our race through life. It is a very easy read with short chapters and then discussion questions at the end of each chapter. Makes for a good small group study or a Sunday School class with the questions. I really enjoyed the lessons learned.

    A short easy-to-read summary of all the heroes of faith. Great book to pickup if you are not familiar with them, but for those who are, there's probably one or two nuggets which you can pick up along the way. Not exactly the most fantastic of his books, and I still find it weird to have a picture of these heroes running together with you on a stadium track while sharing their stories.

    It is a small book and an easy read, but good things come in small packages. Overall it was very elementary but then you'd be smacked with something too great to ignore. The vignettes on Abraham, David, and Jonathan were especially good. The one on David was surprising, and we often don't hear much about Jonathan. I'd certainly recommend this to many who are afraid of reading. It is a small book and an easy read, but good things come in small packages.

    Don't get me wrong, I appreciate John Maxwell, but this was not in my estimation his best work. It had some good things in it, but it was not super deep, and the discussion questions didn't always make sense. I think John Maxwell would do best to stick to books that deal more strictly with leadership, than try to make a Bible study out of it. With all due respect.

    The giants spoken of here are Noah, Ester, Joseph, Moses, Rebekah, Abraham, Nehemiah, the servant girl, David and Johathon. One great one liner from the book: "No place is out of place when you're in God's place."

    What a way to examine the lives of the great leaders of the Christian Faith; running a lap around a great stadium filled with friends, family, and historical figures of leadership. You'll be glad you took an hour to read this powerful little novel.

    Brilliant book. It presented a contemporary take on the life of some Bible characters who have something important to offer. This provided the backdrop for the publishing of my maideb book Time With The Masters.

    This leadership book from a faith-based perspective is brilliant! It's super colorful and fun to read. The way Maxwell highlighted the leadership characteristics of the Biblical leaders big and small was a joy to take in. Two thumbs up! This leadership book from a faith-based perspective is brilliant!

    This is an excellent book if you're looking for inspiration or a pep talk. While not a Christian, I was raised Christian so I know the stories. Maxwell lays them out in such a way as to inspire one to learn a few new habits or at least to rethink them. Left me with an overall good feeling.
