Way too many leaders are not finishing well! The research of J. Robert Clinton and his students at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, CA discovered that only about one out of four Christian leaders finish well. This is a tragic situation that must be addressed. The Apostle Paul, near the end of his life, said, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race. I have kept the faith. Now there is in store for me the crown of righteousness..." (II Timothy 4: 7-8a, NIV). This passage suggests that finishing well is possible! The purpose of this workbook is to help appropriate this reality - we can finish well, we must finish well! Our lives, leadership, and legacy can be a blessing in this world and eternity if we can appropriate the resources of God to finish well. It will take hard work, sacrifice, grace, and discipline, but we have all the resources needed to finish well. We just need to figure out how to do it. Finishing Well is designed to help experienced leaders figure it out by using insights from the Bible, the power of the Spirit, and the support of one another. The workbook uses the IDEA approach to help facilitate transformational learning. Each chapter begins with an introduction (I) followed by discovery (D), explanation (E), and application (A) sections. Each chapter can be worked through as an individual unit or in sequence as a whole with a variety of process options including individual, small group, and various course options. Finishing Well is part of the Finishing Well Series which also includes Deep Processing and The Extraordinary Power of a Focused Life.
