Halftime is one of those useless books that unfortunately becomes popular in the Christian community. The concept is not without merit – how to live the second half of life. The thesis however is not how to live in godliness but how to go from success (in the first half of life) to significance (in the second half). Along the way Buford says very little that is biblical, much that is simply incorrect, and some that is truly dangerous. He over-generalizes, misquotes and fumbles almost every idea he presents. And yet some hail his book as a great read for the believer facing middle age and beyond. Too bad!
