The Forty Day
Challenge to
Save Our Nation








Welcome to the website of Bill Elder, author of All Guts and No Glory and The Bucyrus That Was, and founder of the Quota Plan of Recruiting and the Forty-Day Challenge to Save Our Nation.

It is still hard for me to believe that I have two books that have been published. I know that anyone who knew me “back in the day” would be as surprised as I am that any publisher would be interested in my work. I spent my entire professional career involved in college athletics as a basketball coach and athletic director, never even dreaming that I would someday be a published author.

In addition to writing, I am currently offering my services to colleges and universities as a consultant related to the Quota Plan of Recruiting. I developed and administered this unique plan and refined it while serving as athletic director at four distinctly different institutions. This system allows college athletic programs to become both revenue-producing and enrollment increasing.

A recent focus has been on a project that I call The Forty-Day Challenge to Save Our Nation. I hope this project will serve as an impetus to mobilize Christians to take II Chronicles 7:14 seriously in respect to “saving our land” — a phrase which could refer to an individual, a family, a community, or as I envision it, our nation.
