Joe Gibbs has had an incredible professional career in sports - three-time Super Bowl winning head coach of the Washington Redskins and owner of a three-time NASCAR championship team that has nearly 500 employees - but it was never a clear trail to the winner's circle.

He has stumbled off the path and needed to double-back a few times due to feeling that he had all the questions and answers to life. Yes, this successful head coach sometimes thought he could outsmart the Head Coach.

"Life to me is a game, and you and I are the players. God is our Head Coach, and no one wants to lose the biggest game of all," writes Gibbs. "In the game of life, our Head Coach loved us enough to send His Son to die for our sins."

Christian faith is the cornerstone to gaining a true understanding to the meaning of life - through the Head Coach (God) and Playbook (the Bible) - and Gibbs utilizes personal accounts that are candid and conversational in tone to set the foundation for tackling a number of issues within the 14 chapters of Game Plan for Life: Your Personal Playbook for Success (2009 hardcover; Tyndale House Publishers).

Gibbs personally commissioned a respected national public opinion research firm to survey men and find out what they are most concerned about and where they'd like to have success in their lives. It revealed 11 areas of prime concern - including health, finances, relationships and overcoming sin - which then allowed him to develop a team of experts to address each topic.

"See, the bottom line is that I have found something special, something that works, something that has given me a sense of peace and purpose and fulfillment.

Joe Gibbs - the man behind Joe Gibbs Racing (NASCAR) and two stints as head coach of the Washington Redskins - has released a book with his new "team" of experts.

Game Plan for Life is written for men. But I don't understand why women couldn't have been involved as experts. Maybe it's just his way. (But don't be offended, it's still a great book)

Each chapter is devoted to an area of life men are concerned about. Gibbs asks 11 different people to address each topic after he shares a few pages from his own life.

The topics include:
Finances by Ron Blue
Health by Dr Walt Larimore
Relationships by Don Meredith
Vocation by Dr Os Guinness
The Bible by Josh McDowell
God by Dr Ken Boa
Creation by Dr John Lennox
Sin and Addiction by Ravi Zacharias
Salvation by Chuck Colson
Purpose by Dr Tony Evans
Heaven by Randy Alcorn

As a fan of football and those who profess to be followers of Christ in the national media, I greatly enjoyed reading about the struggles and success of Coach Gibbs and how he became a devoted man of God.

I have been reading Joe Gibbs book "game plan for life" and wanted to share my thoughts so others will also read this book. I was expecting a book like Tony Dungy's. I really enjoyed his book and was hoping for another good one. As I started reading Gibbs book, I realized that his book is much deeper than Dungy's. Game plan for life goes deeper into topics of Christianity and lets ones know the truth about various topics.

This book is broken up by various authors who share their thoughts on various topics. Gibbs selected various ones who are educated in certain areas to share their thoughts.

Football is mentioned in this book, but it is not the main topic in this book. Gibbs does a good job of introducing different religious topics.

I would recognmend checking this book out at your local bookstore.

On a scale from 1-10 I give it a 10.

Joe Gibbs knows how to surround himself with the right people. This book is an easy read and has the basics on how life should be lived. Granted these individuals are very successful in their lives but we really all can be successful no matter what we do if we have the right values and follow the Game Plan. Enjoy.

My husband and I are reading this along with the members of our Sunday school class. We cover a chapter each week, so we're only about 1/3 of the way through it so far, but we and everyone in the class (men and women) are enjoying it a great deal! Coach Gibbs has gathered some great people to help him address topics everything from addiction to salvation and MORE! This is an easy and inspiring read!

Share this book with anyone willing to read it. Helped me in ways I can't describe, & explained alot of things I had questions about.
I plan on rereading portions again & again. I only wish I could meet Joe Gibbs in person to let him know how much this book has meant to me & my family.

Although Joe Gibbs was writing for men in this superb book, it is one that can be just as valuable for women. I think it is a must read for people of both genders - both Christians and those who are not (at least yet).

As Coach Gibbs was gearing this work for men, he started off by polling a large sample (700) of them to find out what they think is really important. From this data, Gibbs and his team decided to focus on eleven areas that are of great interest to men. Then as a great leader, he found eleven subject matter experts to address these topics. In the various chapters, the author penned his own thoughts and experiences in these subjects and then had a substantial contribution from his various specialists. Had women been included in the poll, my guess is that most of the topics would have remained the same.

Frankly, the wisdom of Gibbs is very impressive in and of itself, but he has added immeasurably to that with the different contributors. The very important topics covered are the following:

Can I Believe The Bible?
Who Is God?
How Did Life Begin?
How Do I Deal With Sin?
How Do I Get On God's Winning Team?
What Does God Say About Marriage And Sex?
How Do I Master My Money?
How Do I Build A Successful Life And Career?
How Do I Achieve True Health?
How Do I Get The Most Out of Life?
Where Will I Spend Eternity?

When it comes to covering a wide range of critical topics, I think it would be pretty tough to top this list.

The first of these topics is covered by Josh McDowell. A world renowned expert on Christian apologetics, he gives a short, but very powerful lesson on the reliability of Scripture. Buying the book would be worth it for this chapter alone.
