How should Christians respond to competition?
Americans compete in jobs, school, relationships, and politics. But is competition compatible with Christianity? In the ultimate sphere of competition the sports arena Christian athletes have tried to reconcile their faith with their profession. What are the implications for the rest of us as fans and as competitors in daily life?
