Item Description...
Overview
After speaking on teaching and influencing young people at a student gathering in Texas, Pat Williams received an email from a high school coach who had heard his talk. In the email Coach McCall said, "Every kid who's growing up is dying to live his life. But as people get older, instead of dying to live, they are living to die. In closing, Mr. Williams, I have a thought for you: What are you dying for?" Unable to escape this question, author and professional sports veteran Pat Williams invites readers to ask: When my days on earth are over, will I discover that I have wasted my life on meaningless things that have no lasting and eternal value? Most people are living for four things: fortune, status, power, or pleasure. Just as there are four false reasons for living our lives, there are four true, meaningful and satisfying reasons for living-and dying. These give purpose and value to our lives, so that we can know our lives have eternal significance. The heart of If You Died Tomorrow, What Would People Say? is Jesus' statement:" Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me and for the gospel will save it." Starting here, Pat gives readers a powerful, practical and encouraging plan for how to live a life that truly matters- and to leave a legacy that never dies.

Let's Write a Swimming Pool  Jun 8, 2009
If you're always looking for captivating illustrations and amazing real life stories for your speaking engagements or department meetings--this book delivers the goodies.

Williams take important issues and unpacks them with dozens of memorable stories. The measure of a great anecdote is whether I can repeat it to my wife and she can pass it along, facts in tact, to her friends. For example, in his chapter on the futility of chasing fortune, Williams' stories and quotations hit the mark:
* Did the music of the Beatles really reject the materialistic values of the culture? Not really. Thinking of the money they'd make, John Lennon and Paul McCartney literally used to sit down and say, "Now let's write a swimming pool."
* "A checkbook is a spiritual document," said Billy Graham. "It tells you who and what you worship."
* When industrialist J.P. Morgan died at age 75 in 1913, a newspaper reporter asked one of his associates how much money Morgan left behind. "All of it," the associate replied.
* And this from John Wesley, "When I have any money, I get rid of it as quickly as possible, lest it find a way into my heart."
* "Nothing that is God's is obtainable by money," observed Tertullian, the third century Christian theologian.

That's just a sample of the wisdom and the take-aways from Pat's prolific pen. The author of more than 50 books, Pat and his wife are the parents of 19 children, including 14 adopted from four nations. Pat Williams' bio is amazing--and reason enough to read one or more of his books. As senior vice president of the NBA Orlando Magic (which he co-founded), he sprinkles the book with plenty of sports stories. He's a sports guy--but a renaissance man.

Williams tackles big issues: fortune, fame, power, pleasure, character, influence, parenthood and faith. He then wraps it up with an intriguing final chapter, "What Are You Dying For?" He notes that, sadly, while Bill Gates won dinner in Seattle's Space Needle for memorizing the Sermon on the Mount as an 11-year-old church attender, today Gates says there is no room for faith in his life.
