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.

With wit, wisdom, and exegesis, Perritt presents a deeper, more theologically–sound understanding of the world of athletics. He lifts the reader’s gaze to the impact of the gospel and themes of eternity. If you’re involved or you have children involved in youth sports, this will be a helpful guide to thinking more biblically about it.

Brian H. Cosby, Pastor, Wayside Presbyterian Church, Signal Mountain, Tennessee

The theological insights challenge us to see our sports experiences in light of God’s Story: his good creation, people’s rebellion, Jesus’ provision of redemption, and God’s promise of final restoration
