Sammy Tippit told his fiancée, “I can’t promise we’ll be rich, but life won’t be boring.”
Sammy had no idea what an understatement that would become. Beginning in the bars of Baton Rouge and the nightclubs of Chicago, Tippit has shared the news of life-changing faith in Christ all over the world – including in the middle of a revolution in Romania, the aftermath of genocide in Rwanda, and war in Burundi and the Congo.
Sammy’s lifelong adventure has come at a great price. He’s been cursed, threatened, arrested, deported, and blacklisted. He’s also been personally broken, ravaged with illness, and devastated by grief.
Yet he continues to preach to in stadiums, in open fields, and via satellite technology to hundreds of thousands around the globe.
Loved this book..it spoke to me on so many levels as God has spoken to me personally & prophetically about 'running the race of faith' from the practical illustration of running naturally also. I laughed and cried at times reading this book...maybe it was just where i was at the time but i loved it and couldnt put it down!
This book was used in our run for God class even though I had my reservations on changing books (this was my third Run for God of class) Mr. Tippit did a great job tying God's word together with running. I truly have not had my eyes open to God's word better than through this book. It should be fun opening God's word or open the door on life.
The race by Sammy Tippit is a book that is worth the time to read. It is attractive to runners because he uses running to show how God wants us to live for him, through trials and the good times. I was very inspired.
