Format: Paperback
Whether you are a gifted athlete, a weekend warrior, or one who simply enjoys reading the Sunday Sports section, you will enjoy Spirituality of Sport: Balancing Body and Soul (St. Anthony Messenger Press, January 2004, paperback, 137 pages) by Dr. Susan Saint Sing. Saint Sing, a gifted athlete and inspirational coach, shares her own story of tests and triumphs as she shares her thoughts on the important connection between mind, body and soul inherent in all play.

In this wonderful book, Saint Sing shares stories of heroism and championship - both her own and those of many other talented people. I loved this book for its emphasis on the fact that one's journey in life is to be fully embraced and revered - that the reward comes not from winning the medal or having the fastest time, but from that wonderful connection of spirit, soul and body that gives glory to our Creator through our every action. As a back of the pack jogger, I don't run the race to win - I run to give glory to God through my participation, counting the blessings that give me the good health to participate and to share the day with those around me. I was enthralled by Spirituality of Sport and would highly recommend it.

Format: Paperback
Susan Saint Sing's new book, "Spirituality of Sport: Balancing Soul and Body," is an extraordinary weaving of personal experience and philosophical meditation. Using her own experience as athlete and coach and that of other athletes, Dr. Saint Sing both informs and inspires the reader to excel, to strive toward excellence as a way not only of balancing body and soul, but also as a way of breaking through to an experience of the Divine. This book would be an excellent adjunct text for college students and for high school students, as well. An extraordinary job of taking the reader on a journey through the inner world of the athlete whose determination and discipline allow him or her to break through the limitations of the body into the world of the soul where body and soul have become one.

I highly recommend this book for athletes and everyone who is determined to pursue a goal greater than one's own perceived limitations.
