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.

Treading the only safe path between iconoclasm and idolatry, John Perritt shows us how to celebrate the beauty and goodness of sports as a gift of God’s common grace without finding our identity in them. He calls us to a life of discipleship that adore the Lord who gives us all things richly to enjoy, as we play our favorite sport to the glory of God.

One of the questions I receive most often from parents is, ‘How much is too much for my children to be involved in sports?’ This book doesn’t offer easy solutions, but it does provide the wisdom that parents need to drive them to God’s Word as they decide how sports can be used for God’s glory in their children’s lives.
