Facing the Blitz: Three Strategies for Turning Trials into Triumphs
Author: Jeff Kemp
Publisher: Bethany House Publishers
ISBN #: 0764214020
Jeff Kemp, former quarterback of several NFL teams’ writes of the trials we face in life and how to handle them. The first thing I found interesting in the book is that Mr. Kemp likened the trials we face to blitzes that occur on the football field. Mr. Kemp writes of the many lessons he has learned in life and shares the anecdotes others have taught him. There are three lessons he imparts to the reader for turning life’s trials into triumphs: take a long-term view, be willing to change, and reach out to others.
I found Jeff Kemp’s lessons interesting. I especially found the lesson of being an investor in other people’s lives rather than being a consumer. I felt that this was a reminder to serve as Jesus served and also reminded me of the passage in Philippians 2:3 “Consider others as more important than yourselves.”
Overall, I think this book is thought-provoking on the ways we can positively face our trials. I would recommend this book to a football fan or anyone that wants to learn from another individual’s story on how you can make it through the trials in life.
