5.0 out of 5 stars You Know You Love Sports..., September 18, 2009
This review is from: The Reason For Sports: A Christian Fanifesto (Paperback)
If you were to eavesdrop on conversations in the church lobby on Sunday morning, Sunday school classes, or mid-week small groups you'd quickly notice a trend. Christians - like so many others - enjoy sports. But for a long time it seems like the church as a whole has taken a rather diverse stance towards our love of sports.

Sometimes it's embraced whole-heartedly, other times we're convicted for placing too much significance on how well a man can hit a ball with a stick, shoot a ball through a hoop, or run with a ball while other guys try to catch him. The "good Christian athletes" are exalted, but if the questionable characters are star performers on our team...well, we still kinda like 'em.

All this to say and reaffirm that, in a nutshell, Christians love sports.

If you identify with this group, you need to read "The Reason for Sports". In this book, Ted Kluck has written a number of sports essays that feel - from a quality standpoint - like they're right off the page of the latest issue of SI or ESPN. And throughout, Kluck appropriately and thoughtfully weaves in a biblical perspective. The result is a thoroughly enjoyable, insightful read on athletes, egos, apologies, race, etc. I don't think there's any other book on sports from a Christian perspective written as well as this one.
