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.

Some athletes, even Christian ones, fall into the trap of glorifying themselves rather than God, and thanking Him for wins but not losses. John Perritt’s well–written look at stewardship in sports gets it right: Time Out! can show parents, coaches, and athletes how to use sports to win victories in life. 

Marvin Olasky, Editor in Chief, World Magazine

John Perritt is exceptionally empathetic yet unflinchingly honest and uncompromisingly biblical. I believe this book will spur many teens and their families to find more joy in sports as they find ultimate satisfaction in the Creator of sports.
