Facing the final stages of life, career, or ministry can be daunting. The fear that comes with reaching the end of the road can cause even the most devout Christian leaders to make poor choices, compromise their faith, and damage their legacy. But Dr Morrison shows us that it’s never too late to begin the process of finishing well.
Falling Asleep in the Lap of Delilah is a treasure trove of wisdom on finishing the race of life well. Morrison's thoughtful insights and powerful meditations on how Samson, Israel's notorious strong-man judge, ended up falling asleep in Delilah's lap can guide you to preserve your relationships with God and with others.
Morrison’s reflections on Samson’s life will help you avoid many common pitfalls, including:
- Spiritual Coldness
- Drifting Spiritually
As you apply Morrison’s wisdom, you can be confident that when your race is complete, you will hear Jesus say to you, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”
Philip E. Morrison moved to Kenya over 30 years ago. As a lecturer at Moffat Bible College, he became passionate about equipping under-resourced pastors who are responsible for multiple congregations. As a result, he founded The Multi-Church Pastor Institute to mentor and train these pastors.
He has earned a Doctor of Ministry from Africa International University and currently serves with Africa Inland Mission as a Theological Education Consultant. He is the author of several other books, including The Multi-Church Pastor, Mastering Ministry, and In the Same Room as Jesus. Philip Morrison is a member of the Africa Inland Church in Kenya.
Anyone with his or her eyes open will certainly affirm the urgency of a book on finishing well. I know too many of my age mates whose final years leading up to retirement involve a deteriorating quality of living. There’s a truism found in on gift-shop plaques and posters that says, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.” As Phil skilfully explains, in Christ Jesus, this is not merely a sweet-sounding sentiment, it is 100% true. Because of Jesus, Phil concludes, “Therefore let me encourage you that today is the day you start afresh with the Lord. It is never too late to start the process of finishing well.” —George Renner, PhD
