Take the Flag: Following God's Signals in the Race of Your Life
by Rob Fuquay
About the Book
What are you racing for?
And how will you claim victory? Every day God is offering us guidance and direction – if only we can grasp it.
Now author Rob Fuquay has come up with a bold, imaginative way to understand God's signals through the fast-paced world of auto racing. Far-fetched? Not when you consider the apostle Paul himself wrote passionately about "the race of faith."
The DVD features drivers and professionals in auto racing. It also includes group guides for planning sessions with children, youth, and adults.
Praise for Take the Flag
"Rob Fuquay's inspiring book Take the Flag is a creative, innovative challenge to us to respond productively to God's basic signals in the race of life. Like the apostle Paul before him, Rob is familiar with the racing world and its crucial, lifesaving flag signals to its drivers–and sees in them (and in the sport of racing, like Paul) fascinating lessons for living life meaningfully in a world that often moves at breakneck speed."
—James W. Moore, retired United Methodist pastor, bestselling author of over 40 books
"Take the Flag will keep you on the right track toward Jesus no matter here you are in the race of life. As a NASCAR chaplain, I see the flags wave over the passing race cars on the track every week. Rob connects this theme with biblical teaching in a way that has challenged me in my walk with the Lord. This series will encourage you to keep following Jesus, full speed ahead, all the way to the finish line."
—Nick Terry, Chaplain, Motor Racing Outreach
