NOW UPDATED bio on Jeremy Lin and "Linsanity". Meet the "dream team" of talented NBA players with fascinating faith stories in Playing with Purpose: Basketball. Just in time for the new pro season, this book chronicles the lives of several players who stand strong for their Christian faith. Veteran CBA author Mike Yorkey, whose Playing with Purpose biography of NFL rookies Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow, and Colt McCoy was a best-seller, now profiles NBA stars both established and up-and-comingsuch as Jeremy Lin, Kyle Korver, Anthony Parker, Luke Ridnour, and Chris Kaman. With a foreword by Ernie Johnson, host of TNTs NBA coverage, Playing with Purpose: Basketball is perfect for any hoops fan.
Mike Yorkey, a former Focus on the Family magazine editor and author, co-author, or editor of more nearly 90 books, has written about sports for a variety of national publications. Mike is author of several other titles in the Playing with Purpose series and co-author of the internationally bestselling Every Man’s Battle books. He and his wife, Nicole, are parents of two adult children, and live in Encinitas, California.
“As a coach, I’m always looking for both talent and character. Playing with Purpose: Basketball will introduce you to ten professionals whose faith is as strong as their court presence. You’ll love their story.”
Mike Krzyzewski, “Coach K” Duke University
