Publisher's Description

Football Faith will inspire and encourage you in your faith journey, as 52 NFL players share their stories and how they are chasing the success that only comes from being God's man and following His plan. These men are committed to living their lives with eternity in mind. Empowered by God, they are looking beyond the competition to a larger goal: following God's game plan for their lives as team players, as husbands, fathers, sons, and then using their influence to point others toward Him. Featuring personal stories from Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, Colin Kaepernick, RDeion Sanders, and dozens more--plus with a foreword from Coach Joe Gibbs.

Editorial Reviews

"From the locker rooms of the smallest high school to those of the most powerful professional football teams, faith and football go hand in hand. I could have had my faith without football, but not football without my faith. Rob Maaddi has written an inspiring book that serves as a testimony of how faith motivates and substantiates athletes as they strive to overcome the challenges and humbly attain the triumphs."

Troy Vincent, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations and five-time Pro Bowl cornerback

"Football Faith illustrates the true motivation behind many of today's athletes. No different than in life, we will be faced with many adverse circumstances, and these stories help to shed light on the faith and perseverance necessary to succeed on and off the field."

Brady Quinn, NFL quarterback

"While it may be hard to tell how football and faith actually mix, it is easy to see that football players and faith can be a match made in heaven. When football players take the time to examine the spiritual—to see what God has for them through faith in Jesus Christ—then we have something. In this collection of first-person explanations of favorite Bible passages, we get a glimpse at how some of today’s top football people interact with Scripture. We see how they let God’s Word guide their lives and inform their decisions. While these are not commentaries by Bible scholars, they are practical insights into how men in America’s favorite game find hope, help, and encouragement through important Bible verses. Football Faith can help everyone who values the game and cherishes the Word to think through how Scripture should be informing their lives as well."

Dave Branon,

Inductee: Cedarville University Athletic Hall of Fame

"Christianity isn’t about religion; it’s about having a relationship with Christ. Football Faith tells this story in an inspirational way."

-Mark Sanchez, NFL quarterback

Football Faith will motivate not only football fans, but anyone desiring to be uplifted and encouraged to be all that they can be. It encourages you to take the God given talents bestowed upon you, and use them to the glory of God. . . This book will remain in my library; it will be quoted from and read again and again.
