From Coach Gibbs:
“Os Guinness has a deep sense of the great calling men have on their lives. We wanted his contribution to the Game Plan for Life project to be on vocation and careers. This topic is important to most ambitious men, but Os helps us see that in the end, we are accountable in life to an audience of one–God. I think the fact that he grew up in China and England helps him be objective when speaking to American men and I’m thankful for his voice in this project.”
