As a Christian, Gibbs knows he cannot serve two masters, but, at times, his faith is overwhelmed by fanaticism. He is not alone.
Gibbs and his six million friends do not live in a spiritually void land where such borderline idol worship would normally be accepted. They live in the American South, where, according to the 2008 American Religioud Identification Survey, 34 percent identify themselves as Christians.
This apparent contradiction that Gibbs sees in his own life, and in millions of others has led him to journey to each of the twelve schools to spend time with the rabid Christian fans of various ages and denominations. Through his journey, he learns how others are able to balance their passion for their team with their devotion to God.

BaggettBaton Rouge, LAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This book was featured in our local paper on the religion page. Loved the review and knew all these S.E.C. football fanatics that would get some laughs. The bonus is they will also get thought provoking statements about GOD.
The reviewer for our paper noted inaccuracies in some of the football statistics or about a particular player, but overall, it was part of the laughter. Ordered 5 to give as Christmas gifts to family and guy friends.
