"The Christian Athlete: Honoring God in Sports"
"In this day and age, competition,
most visibly in sports, often brings out the worst in people.
Many athletes and fans seem compelled to do things that cheat
sports of their purpose—of God's purpose.
This leads active Christians to wonder how it is possible to bring
honor to God in the world of sports today. Active Christians in
every sport have to ask: What is the true function of sports? Is
it possible to hold fast to Christian values and be a
competitive athlete? Is it acceptable to let Christian values
slide during competition?
Dwayne K. Smith answers these questions and more in his
exceptional book, The Christian Athlete—Honoring God in Sports,
a must read for every athlete, coach, fan, and parent with
children in sports. A coach himself, Smith combines stories and humor with
powerful insights on subjects that athletes and coaches deal
with on a regular basis, such as handling failure, battling
laziness, and glorifying God with our bodies.
Take a time out to become
the active Christians you were
meant to be—honoring God in the active Christians sports you love!"
