More About the Author
Looking back over his life, Steve understands better what the author of the book of Hebrews and the great apostle Paul said: "Jesus [is] the author and finisher of our faith" and "Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ" (Hebrews 12:2; Philippians 1:6). These promises of God are certainly evident in Steve Mays' life.
Pastor Steve was the Regional Overseer and Pastoral leader over Calvary Chapel Outreach Fellowship, which included over 900 Calvary Chapel ministries, both domestic and international from 1997-2005. He also collaborated with the CHP and developed the South Los Angeles CHP Chaplain program, in which Calvary Chapel Pastors assist the CHP in critical incidents, death notifications and debriefings. He was invited to speak in Nigeria at the Gideons International Convention in 2002, sharing with businessmen the truth of God's Word and the fundamentals of studying His Word. Pastor Steve was also invited to participate at Oxford University's Round Table in London, England. The Oxford Round Table is a symposium for learned discussions of contemporary issues of significant consequence. Pastor Steve's topic of discussion concerned the relevance of religion. He was also one of the guest speakers at the Pro Family Legislators Conference in Dallas, Texas, hosted by Wallbuilders in 2006. In January of 2008, he was invited to conduct a Bible Study at Prison Fellowship Ministries, the Pentagon, and at the White House, where he also attended a special breakfast gathering with then President George W. Bush. Steve Mays has become a well-known conference speaker, commencement speaker, author, and has a national radio broadcast, "Light of the Word" which is heard on many radio stations throughout the country.

Pastor Steve Mays does a very good job at connecting with the reader! Before he gets into the meat and potatoes of each chapter he gives a personal touch by giving a view into his life and connecting each chapter title with a personal story.
Overcoming is full of memorable quotes so you better have your highlighter ready when reading this book!
The final pages of OVERCOMING asks, "What are you trying to overcome in your life today? Have you been trying to change but feel like you keep slamming your head against a wall? Do you keep failing? Have you tried every 12-step program, self-help book and positive thinking exercise there is, only to come up short? I want to encourage you to start with the right foundation--a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. Only God, working in and through you, can give you the victory of overcoming." (Page 169)
I recommend you read this book with your yellow highlighter in hand--and apply the principles to your everyday life.
