Gold by Richard Daly
With the Olympics almost upon us, Richard Daly has written 100 inspirational thoughts on taking part in the race, the journey, which is our Christian life. As he says, the spirit of the Olympic Games can be characterised in the creed written by its modern founder, Baron Pierre De Coubertin: 'The most important thing in the Olympic games is not to win but to take part, just as the most important thing in life is not the triumph but the struggle. The essential thing is not to have conquered but to have fought well.' He reminds us that likewise we are indeed all winners if we are taking part in the Christian race, that by enduring we triumph and, if we have fought well, we conquer. In this small attractive book, each thought, with a Bible verse, will both comfort you and challenge you to become a true winner.
