Description

Sport is one of the many evidences of a gracious God. It can unite people, sharing together in the enjoyment it brings. But it brings the challenge of proper stewardship under God, especially when working with young people. Are they being encouraged to use their gifts and time to God’s glory? Are you ensuring that they are living by God’s Word, rather than prioritising their sport? There is a lot to learn about how God wants us to live through sports – both on and off the field.

Endorsements

Here we learn afresh that sport is God‘s good idea, and meant to be stewarded for his glory and our joy. Let us not “forge a new god” to quote the author, by uncritically adopting the idol worship of contemporary sports culture. John’s work will cause you to think, and may it be hoped, to change!

Carl H. Kalberkamp, Senior Pastor, Pear Orchard Presbyterian Church, Ridgeland, Mississippi

Every church engaging in sports ministry needs to have this book as a resource for setting clear and gospel–focused guidelines. Perritt has done a considerable service in addressing the key issues in short compass and providing biblical answers.
