Still Running combines the author’s love for running with his greater love for God into an incredible story, intended as an encouragement for the reader to run his or her own race in life. This true story is about an African orphan who experienced death at an early age when his mother suddenly died from a two-day illness. Without an adult guardian, he put himself through school and eventually matriculates across the Atlantic, where he becomes a crusader against poverty. Incorporating sport metaphors to teach life’s lessons, the book is in part an autobiography and an inspirational manual. Its main takeaway is the role of divine intervention versus personal resilience in human pliancy.
This book is a tribute to the millions of African children whose childhoods are mired in unimaginable poverty: At least fifty percent of its proceeds go to support the Liberian Education Initiative: African School of the Future (LEI), a proposed model K--12 education environment focused on college preparatory education, sustainable development, and servant leadership.
