Product Description

A thoughtful exploration of the uneasy relationship between Christianity and the sports world. Citing numerous examples from ancient to modern times, Hoffman argues that a Christian vision of sport is superficial and offers little alternative to secular culture. His examination of violence, ethics, celebrity evangelism, and more is sure to spark controversy---and fruitful discussion.

    Good Game by Shirl James Hoffman is most defiantly the deepest, most thought-provoking, and heaviest book I have read. At some points, I found myself thinking that even C.S. Lewis's writings were a bit easier to work through. Sometimes you pay for what you get and with this book you get a lot of "meat to chew" on for the price!While Good Game is by no means an easy read, quick read, or light read (just check out the incredibly massive bibliography) it is a read that is worth the time if you are up to the challenge. Hoffman really makes one think through the culture of sports and take a deep look into it's past, present, and future.This is a book that I think is good, but also one that I can neither say "don't read" or "do read". Each person must approach this book ready to re-think a subject that so many of us are already so opinionated about. I am not sure if anyone will walk away in complete agreement, but I would highly encourage you to not dismiss everything he has to say either. There is great value in this book, I only wish it could be simplified and streamlined for easier reading. This review copy was provided by The B&B Media Group.
