Endure: A Christian Man's Guide to Finishing Strong by Bill Newton

Shepherd Press



oo many Christian men start enthusiastically, then fall short. Falling short can be a public fall: Church-going husband has an affair. High-profile ministry leader gets caught in a scandal. Outspoken advocate is marred by hypocrisy. But for most men, falling short isn’t a newsworthy spectacle. It’s subtler. Closer to home. It’s floundering in the faith. Stunted spiritual growth. It’s entering the race God has called them to, then choosing to coast. This story doesn’t make headlines, but it’s far more common. Will this be your story? ENDURE is a practical, Scripture-steeped guide to help men finish the race God has set before them. Whether you are young or seasoned, married or solo, spiritually fit or totally anemic, this book was written for you. Empowered by the Holy Spirit and equipped with fresh insights, you will grow in biblical maturity, be challenged to change, and find strength for the road ahead.

About the Author

Bill Newton is a pastor with a heart to “help men grow up”―to see men transform from acting good to being godly. Long before he stood behind the pulpit, Bill was playing and coaching football, flying over 250 combat missions in Vietnam, graduating from Harvard Business School, working on Wall Street, buying and selling businesses, raising a family, and the list goes on. In other words, Bill has been there, done that. But while his bio sounds impressive, Bill’s story is not one of win after win. His story is one in which God graciously allowed him many opportunities to fail, learn, and recover. Find out more at Bill’s website, www.billnewton.us.
