Role of a Lifetime

Reflections on Faith, Family, and Significant Living
By James Brown (Audiobook, 2010)
We live in a world that all too often operates under the overriding template of self-promotion, embracing a "hooray for me" attitude, and which measures success in increasingly small timeframes dotted with markers of temporal value.

Millions of viewers know James Brown as a sports commentator and former athlete. With ROLE OF A LIFETIME, James reveals a different side of his character. Part memoir and part self-help, this book draws on James' lessons from his life experiences to guide readers to find fulfillment and significance. He offers values and encouragment to others of all generations, assisting them in their search for meaning in navigating a world that increasingly promotes transient values, if any at all. His message that shortcuts and gimmicks are counterproductive to a person's success provides hope that there is a God who cares about them and their futures.

  • "I had the privilege of working with JB when he served as sportscaster for BET Black College Basketball games. I got to know firsthand his character, his integrity, his discipline, and his devotion to family and community . . . I can't think of a better guidepost for  young people around the world than James Brown's excellent and heartfelt book, ROLE OF A LIFETIME."

  • "In ROLE OF A LIFETIME, James's inspiring messages about character, resilience, and faith are both a road map for and realization of a life well lived."

  • "JB is one of the finest people I have ever met. Not just because he has God in his life, but because he is a very warm, sincere human being. I feel very fortunate to be able to call him a friend."
