Product Description

Power. Grace. Strength. Fearlessness. That is Living Life in the Zone. For many men, there is nothing more exciting than seeing an athlete elevate his game to another realm.

Against all reason, time slowed down.

If only we mortals were so lucky. Between the stresses of work and the pressures of parenthood and marriage, our time-our life-flies by faster than major league fastball. Can we hope to elevate our game and enter the zone?Living Life in the Zone is a 40-Day spiritual journey for discovering abundant life. Filled with inspirational Scriptures and real-life stories of playmakers such as Tony Dungy, Allan Houston, Kurt Warner, and John Wooden, this game plan will teach you what God has in store for men living in his Zooooooone

Publisher's Description

Why this book? Because many men still have the desire to have a real faith dialog, but much of today's current church literature and methodology doesn't appeal to them.

Living in the zone—that state of mind when almost everything seems to be working for you—is every man's desire. But how does a man live in the zone as a Christian?

This 40-day spiritual journey is a sports-filled prescription for today's busy man designed to help remove stress and give him confidence to embrace his daily adventure. Each chapter is:

  • Designed to strengthen both churched and unchurched men
  • Brief enough for men to enjoy but with spiritual depth
  • Filled with issues that are real but often not discussed in church
  • Concentrated on a daily spiritual to-do list
Divided into four sections: Marriage, Children, Work, and Faith, each daily reading includes:
  • thought of the day
  • words of wisdom on a particular subject
  • biblical perspective
  • insight for living it out
  • questions to ponder
  • today's call to action
  • prayer requests

Real life stories focusing on the faith journey of famous athletes, coaches, businessmen, and other public figures encourages men that they too can handle adversity, walk in faith, and live in the zone.

Includes input from celebrities such as Tony Dungy, Lee Corso, Chris Mortensen, Bobby Bowden and many more.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  The book, divided into four sections—Marriage, Children, Work, and Faith—calls upon the experiences celebrity sports figures such as Tony Dungy, Lee Corso, Chris Mortensen, Bobby Bowden, and more. Living Life in the Zone helps men to have a real faith dialog, even when much of today's current church literature and methodology doesn't appeal to them. “ Admittedly, we are fellow strugglers in this life. However, we have found that God’s Word taken in its proper context speaks to every core issue a man can face. And when God speaks, He doesn’t stutter,” writes Rote and Pettigrew. “In addition, we recognize that many men tend to compartmentalize their lives—so we have chosen to focus on what our research has told us are the most stressful compartments—faith, fatherhood, marriage, work, and friendships.”

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  We hope men will see that they are living in one of the most stressful times in our country's history. They are being pulled in every direction. They want to be a great husband, father, employee and disciple. Men will hear stories from many of the most successful sports and business men in the world about how they deal with these issues and still keep their eyes focused on Jesus.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  The book was a year long daily project with my friend Kyle Rote, Jr. While we both have grown children, we have a special place in our heart for young men trying to balance work, marriage, fatherhood and their faith. As we listened to the many stories that we wrote about, we often stooped and prayed that this book would speak to men the way the stories spoke to us.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  Our main inspiration is Jesus Christ. As far as earthly sources of inspiration, Tony Dungy, John Wooden,Chris Mortensen, Gene Stallings and Larry Payton were key influences.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  We believe this is an important read for men battling to be a super dad, super husband, super breadwinner and follower of Christ. We support the local church and only desire to help get more men in or back in the local church
