Maxwell, a motivational speaker and bestselling author, uses the lives of a number of Old Testament characters (Rebekah, Joseph, Abraham, and Jonathan, among others) to illustrate various traits needed to succeed in the "race of faith," as described in Hebrews 12:1. Among the traits described are stamina, endurance, and faith. Using the foot-race metaphor, Maxwell imagines the listener participating in a race in which each of the characters comes alongside to describe an action he/she performed that illustrates each trait. These characters seem almost to be "spirit guides." Maxwell's skills as a speaker are apparent as he reads his own work. His polished reading is done with great confidence. M.T.F.
