LEAD...for God'Sake! (Book Review)

That is how I am going to start this review.  With my 3rd book down of the year 2013.  All I can say is WOW.  This book was a weekend read, not just because I had the time this weekend, but more so because I couldn't put it down.  Recomended highly and given to me by Johnny Shelton (@VTFB_Chaplain) on Friday. 

LEAD...for God'Sake! - By Todd Gogwer

I'm not going to spend a ton of time describing this book or telling you specific quotes from the book.  1)Because I really want everyone to just get a copy and read it and 2)That would be way too much reading as I have highlighted a great deal of the book.

Lead...for God'Sake is written in parable format.(my favorite way to learn)  So it is a story, and heart felt one at that, about a basketball coach in Kentucky who builds an amazing relationship with the school janitor.  Which in turn, leads him to changing his heart and purpose for living.  But the substance is so much more than that, it caused me to pause and Re-read many parts of the book because I needed more time to marinate on the words, analogies, and memorable quotes.

I honestly can't remember the last time I cried while reading a book, well this greatly told story till the end, made that happen for me twice.  (well one of those times I just got a lump in my throat because I was holding it back)  I truly suggest everyone to read this book this year, you will not be disappointed.
