The Gospel of Fire

Eliot Marshall

Eliot Marshall has always been a fighter—from overcoming bullies and bigots who targeted his half-black, half-Jewish heritage to using his martial-arts prowess to become part of the UFC. But beneath his badass exterior, Eliot struggled with severe anxiety, until he learned to live a life of true purpose.

In The Gospel of Fire, Eliot shares his incredible story of breaking down and learning to build himself back up by acknowledging his shortcomings, accepting his challenges, freeing himself from fear, and maximizing his opportunities. Sharing the experiences and tools that helped him battle back from the edge of despair, Eliot shows you how to discover your own “why” and refocus your days on “how” to achieve it.

You past doesn’t define you, and your present can set you free. With Eliot’s example, you can find your path and the power to remake your life.
