This book is not for the faint of heart or quitters. It will push the limits of your resolve and show you how a man is supposed to walk in the light of the risen King. This book has changed my view of my relationship with God and my family. I especially recommend it to the man who finds himself in a bind and has only 2 ways out one to stay the course and take it on the chin or Quit.

I had trouble identifying Mr. Farrar's goals. Was he trying to make us laugh? Was he working to include every anecdote he could think of? Was narrative or structure in any way a priority? I had a great deal of trouble gleaning wisdom from this book, and I was distracted by jokes that might be mildly amusing in person, but translate poorly to the page. I was constantly wondering where he was heading. I couldn't help but imagine his subconscious thesis while writing this work was "I've done pretty much everything right, so here's how you should too." (Save for a mild admission that he got mad at his wife for making him sleep on the pull out couch). I was assigned this book for a men's leadership development class through my church, and while I think his intent was good, the execution of this book is sloppy, unstructured, and forgettable. If you're interested to know, the book sounds like he took a transcript from a men's retreat weekend where he was the speaker and separated it into rambling chapters. Save yourself the trouble, don't buy this book, and seek out Godly mentorship instead. Then at least you might get good company and a friendly lunch.

It's the question I always ask when reading a Christian book. What can I get from this that I wouldn't see from reading the Bible on my own? What can I get from this that I wouldn't hear from a pastor's sermon in church? Why does there need to be yet another book in the huge ocean of Christian literature? Is this book necessary, and if not, is it at least worthwhile? (Of course the same could be said about me posting this review among the many others.)

Well, what I got out of "Finishing Strong" was primarily reinforcement. As a Christian, you know that there are tons of obstacles in store for you as you walk your path with God, and you know it's a long road. But what Mr. Farrar does is give you a better idea of what possible obstacles there are, and exactly how long the road is. It's likened to a 126 mile long road with multiple ambushes waiting in the form of money, women, and pride. He wisely tells you where he sees the finish line to be, even though he leaves it somewhat open to interpetation. And he's very clear to point out that only one in ten men is going to live up to the potential God has given him to reach this finish line in a powerful way. This is the most important point in the book, and if the elaboration on this point isn't a reason to read the book, then there's no reason to read it at all.

Many purposeful stories are in the book, and there should be at least one you don't already know. Some are stories about pastors, and others are about people outside of the church, so there's a lot of variety. Really, the only noticeable flaw I could point out is that while the meat of this book has quite a few things that only those familiar with the Bible could understand (it's obviously written for Christian men), Farrar tells the story of Joseph in a paraphrased way like we never heard it before, and spends at least a page or two doing it. Not necessary.

Okay, so a few pages weren't necessary, but going back to an earlier question, is the book itself necessary or at least worthwhile? Is it necessary to read "Finishing Strong" if you want to finish strong for Jesus? I would say it isn't, but at least having a copy close by will give your brain some reinforcement of where you should be in your race towards the goal.

I wasn't sure if this book would be entertaining or another book that made me feel guilty for all of the things I wasn't doing. That was not the case, however! This book is written for humans - specifically human men, but my wife also read it and loved it. The idea of finishing strong had never occurred to me, but it became apparent as I read the book how important it really is. If you're not moving forward, you're moving backwards, and this book illustrates that and gives examples of significant people in history and how they have maintained forward momentum and people we have never heard of who really were off to such a great start at such a fast pace that they should be some of the most well-known figures in history, but they got derailed and did not finish strong. This is great for every person, every man especially, to get ahold of and understand how to simply move forward. I appreciate so much that this book was well written so it does not make anyone feel bad, yet wants you to become better!

Thank you Steve Farrar for a great book!

I found this book to be of better caliber then Point Man. Couple of things, the author has gained more wisdom in the past twelve years or so and is not nearly as dogmatic. When we are immature we often think we have ALL the answers.
He speaks more about God's grace. This is so necessary to keep fallen man(all of us!) from being trapped by the enemy. Farrar still uses anecdotes to prove some weak points, retells well known bible stories in detail(can you say filler) and still makes broad statements that are questionable, i.e., "when I read between the lines..." Or some of his biblical hunches which don't appear in any reputable commentary. Comes across a little like I'm cranking out another book for my publisher and to make$. Sometimes I think Steve should just say No and focus more on quality then quantity. He really does have some good stuff.
The study questions are the best part of the book, but I don't think he wrote them.

I had read this book several years ago and found it very helpful. We are using it with our Men's Group. The author speaks to the heart of current issues and problems with deep insight and just enough humor to keep things interesting. Highly recommend this book to men of all ages. Would make an excellent gift!
