Excerpt


How open is our culture to recreation and sports? The popular culture today is saturated with recreation and sports. The Olympics, Super Bowl, World Series, X-Games, Iron Man events, the Final Four in college basketball, and the playoff series in professional basketball capture the imaginations of millions of people in America each time they are held. The questions are, according to general editor John Garner, where is the church and how is the church using these tools to reach people, and will the church see the opportunity to use recreation and sports as ministry tools? The fact is, most churches are not reaching the postmodern culture and are being ignored by an increasingly non-Christian American culture because people see no relevance to their lives. What they do see relevance in is re-creative leisure; they pursue it at break-neck speed and often at great costs. Somehow the church must learn to "capture the imagination" of a world that is passing it by. If the church can capture the imaginations of people, it can get their attention, can gain access to their minds, and can reach the heart with the message of the love of God.

Excerpt


A competitive athlete trains for one thing ... the game. Having the skills and knowing how to play aren't enough---you need to perform when it matters. Yet so many of those same athletes live in a spiritual off-season. They have faith. They know the Word. But they sit back and watch others take the lead. Get in the Game encourages athletes to transfer their drive and determination to the spiritual realm and shows that there is far more than a game on the line.

Of all the great National Football League coaches, none have enjoyed the respect and reputation that Vince Lombardi earned during his tenure as head coach of the Green Bay Packers. Feared and beloved by players and peers, he coached the Packers to five NFL championships and victories in Super Bowls I and II. During the ten seasons in which his Packers compiled a remarkable 98-30-4 record, his relentless, uncompromising tactics and values defined him even more than the victories themselves. This book takes readers back to a bygone era when professional football was a game of guts, grit, and spit. Lombardi embodied the greatness of that era, and he demanded nothing less than greatness from his staff and players. In this book, dozens of players, assistant coaches, opponents, and league officials who knew him well recount their favorite Lombardi memories in their own words. They reveal the man behind the legend on and off the field.
