This journey through failure, faith and success provides valuable life lessons.
One of the best things you can do to grow in your Christian faith is to learn from those who have gone before you.
Reading Christian biographies is a wonderful way to help deepen your faith.
So I’ve got a really inspiring book recommendation for you.
A Christian leader of courage and character who has shaped my life is well-known Australian Christian entrepreneur Tony McLellan.
During my years at Australian Christian Lobby, Tony was a member of the board and was chairman during my initial years as Managing Director.
We have remained friends since I left in 2018 and I was privileged to be asked to comment on the early manuscript of his new book, A Glorious Ride – From Jumble Plains to Eternity.
Tony’s is an incredible rags-to-riches story.
It’s a yarn about a boy from the bush who achieved tremendous success only to discover that gaining the whole world means nothing if you haven’t kept your soul.
Like so many people who come to faith later in life, Tony brings an incredible perspective about what Jesus has saved him from, and what Jesus has saved him for.
His journey through failure, faith and success provides valuable life lessons.
The book is co-authored by Nick Cater, a prominent public intellectual, columnist for The Australian and executive director of the Liberal party think tank the Menzies Research Centre.
