Publisher's Description

Meet the “starting lineup” of talented professional players with fascinating faith stories in Playing with Purpose: Football. Just in time for the new pro season, this book chronicles the lives of several players who stand strong for their Christian faith on the professional gridiron. 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 updates their stories and adds profiles of Colin Kaepernick and Drew Brees, defensive end Jared Allen, safety Corey Lynch, kicker Phil Dawson, coach Greg Schiano, and more.

Editorial Reviews

There are a lot of different stories about all the players and how their faith has impacted or changed their careers.  It was definitely an interesting read even though I am not a football fan and really didn't know of many of the players mentioned.

I enjoyed hearing the back stories of some of these players.  Whether overcoming obstacles in their personal lives or simply living out their faith on a larger-than-average stage, Yorkey reminds us that NFL players are like the rest of us in many ways, living out their faith in a secular world, seeking to find Christian fellowship with co-workers and to be a witness in a workplace full of doubters.

I really enjoyed this book and loved to see each of these situations handled. Football “stars” are real people too with the same issues that you and I have. Yorkey shows you this in this book and does it with ease. Yorkey’s writing is to the point and straight forward. This book could be read over time, every chapter getting a day or two to read, or could be read quickly in one long sitting. In any case you won’t get bored and it keeps you engaged. Pick up a copy.
