About the Author

Bobby Bowden is known as much for his affable charm as he is for his championship teams. Having coached young men in seven decades, he is the winningest coach in major college football history. Bowden guided Florida State University to more than three hundred victories, two national championships, twelve Atlantic Coast Conference titles, finishing in the top five in the country in fourteen straight seasons, and he also led the Seminoles to Bowl Games in twenty-eight consecutive seasons during his thirty-four-year tenure.

The patriarch of college football’s most famous coaching family, Bowden remains heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, annually awarding The National Bobby Bowden Award to a student-athlete for achievement on and off the field, including his conduct as a faith model in the community. Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006. He and his wife of sixty-one years, Ann, live in Tallahassee, Florida.

Well worth reading for young and old.

Presented by one of the most successful college football coaches of all time, who had a very humble upbringing and never forgot those experiences.

Wonderful book full of the wisdom and words we have all come to love hearing from Coach Bobby Bowden. Not only is Coach Bowden the winningest coach in major college football, but he has become a faith leader to so many people; football players, football fans, and non-football fans alike. This book shares with the reader his very personal insights and thoughts (composed over 60 years of speaking publicly about his faith) on why it is just plain smart to have faith in G-d.

There are many things to be gleaned from this book by people of all faiths.

Wisdom of Faith is a wonderful Christian faith based testimony of Bobby Bowden's devotion to God and a glimpse into the life of the Bowden's , through life's challenges, losses, tragedies, sorrows, motivations, accomplishments, laughter, joy, love and faith. Written by a very humble man who has left every Christian a true legacy. Well worth reading for young and old. I personally thank Coach Bowden, Steve Bowden and the Bowden family for sharing their lives, wisdom and faith.

Fantastic book by one of the finest men on the planet. He not only talks the talk, he actually walks the walk, which too few Christians do these days. I have tremendous respect and admiration for Coach Bowden and wish there more like him in the world. This is a wonderful book about a man and his faith in God.
