Review: John Chilson has captured a vast number of marketing truths, giving us a simple way to grasp each one through the Santa Claus tradition. Instead of coals in our stockings, we find nuggets of gold. Best of all, we are not left to wade through a mountain of words to find the treasure. It's all right there on the surface, ready to review again and again to keep us refreshed and alert.

Running With God

Running With God by John M. Chilson

My journey to find God's love, forgiveness and faithfulness. Over 30 chapters, some heavy, some light, some short, some longer, but all will give you something to think about. Chapters should be read randomly, one-at-a-time so that you can let them percolate in your mind.

Review: If you're new to Christianity, checking it out for the first time, or looking to renew your faith, this is a great book. It's a collection of down-to-earth glimpses into the spiritual life of one man and how God has molded him. It's an easy and fun read, but does ask probing questions. If you want to get closer to God, I'm sure you'll find something here that will encourage you, challenge you, and help you along the way.
