Our lives are finite. There is a date and time when they will come to an end. But with people living longer, many of us will have a number of years where our professional work is done, our children are grown, and our schedules are more flexible. Will we spend these last days pressing on towards the finishing line, keeping our eyes on the prize, like Caleb and Paul? Or will our hearts be distracted by the pleasures of this world like Solomon and Lot? Read on, and discover how those who lived long ago encourage us to finish well today.

Black is not suggesting that a genuine Christian can lose salvation at the end, but he is highlighting the danger of slipping away from the zeal that marked a good beginning. This book challenges the reader; it will convict; it will comfort and encourage. It will also warn about becoming complacent.

Through humor, personal candor and biblical illustrations, Michael Black takes readers on a journey to understand that the end of their lives is determined by every minute leading up to that pivotal moment. I highly recommend it for taking stock of your current fruitfulness and purpose in your life, to re–orient yourself to entering the joy of your Master.
