Are you wild about sports---and God? This thoughtful look at the intersection of faith and fandom hits the ball out of the park! Focusing on well-known athletes and coaches, Kluck tackles some of today's most serious issues to show what sports can teach us about sin, repentance, race, drugs, hero worship, humility, and more. 256 pages, softcover from Moody.
There are books on how to worship God with our marriages, our money, and our sex lives. Books on how to "think biblically" about movies, television, and the arts. Books on how to vote Christianly and how not to vote Christianly. But there is little thoughtful, Christ-centered writing on the subject that drives most of men's banter with each other and consumes the bulk of their free time: sports.
Written in the vein of Rick Reilly (Sports Illustrated), Chuck Klosterman (Spin, Esquire), and David Foster Wallace (A Supposedly Fun Thing I'll Never Do Again), The Reason for Sports will both entertain and shed light on some of today's most pertinent sports issues (race, drugs, hero worship, and more)- all through a biblical lens.
TED KLUCK is co-author of Why We're Not Emergent and author of Facing Tyson, 15 Stories, Paper Tiger and Game Time. His award-winning writing has also appeared in ESPN the Magazine, Sports Spectrum Magazine and on ESPN.com's Page 2. An avid sports fan, he has played professional indoor football, coached high school football, trained as a professional wrestler, served as a missionary, and has also taught writing courses at the college level. He currently lives in Michigan with his wife and two sons.
