A Remarkable Life Story Filled with Hope, Faith and Determination
Before he was even retired, Bob Wahl had accomplished enough to fill several lifetimes. After leaving home with just $1.75 in his pocket, he went on to establish ministries across Europe, make fortunes in several unique businesses, tinker in countless others, and raise a successful family.
Contending With Horses is the story behind this remarkable life. The first part of this powerful autobiography traces Wahl's heritage back to sixteenth-century Holland, and follows his lineage to Prussia, Russia, Ukraine, and finally Canada. The narrative then shifts to Wahl's upbringing in a hardscrabble Canadian Mennonite family in the1930s and '40s. What follows is a journey that will see him receive an education far from his rural home, move overseas to spread the word of God, and try his hand as a salesman as he struggles to take care of his family.
But on the road to success, he will encounter incredible obstacles, witness crushing business defeat, battle disappointment with his church and face his greatest enemy head-on: self-doubt.
Contending With Horses is a moving portrait of a life lived fully through some of the best and worst times. It unveils the author's deepest despairs as well the ecstasy of reaching the highest pinnacle of success in ministry and business. And it explores the traits necessary to keep getting up after being knocked down time and again.
