These one page devotionals read quickly, but the lessons linger. Each one includes vignette about a particular player, a relevant scripture passage and a closing prayer. The book would be a good gift for an NBA fan, but would be ideal for youth leaders or others doing a month-long Bible study as a great conversation starter.
It is fast-paced and filled with fresh, up-to-date information about 31 NBA players including LeBron, Carmelo, Durant, Chris Paul and many more. Hollis draws an element from each player's style or character and ties it to a scriptural principle to emulate or avoid.
This quote is exemplary of the devotionals:
"Tim Duncan teaches us an important lesson--just because your work goes unnoticed by the masses doesn't mean it isn't noticed by God. The Bible says in 1 Cor. 15:58, 'Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.' This is the epitome of who Duncan portrays--steadfast effort which has led him to four NBA Championships and thirty seconds from another."
My only complaint is that there is only enough for one month. If there were a sequel, I'd gladly buy that one as well.
