Item description for A Sporting Guide to Eternity: A Devotional for Competitive People by Steve Connor...
Overview This is a devotional for sportspeople - whether they are active or just armchair experts, it is divided into topics which will be relevant to us all - anxiety, beauty, dealing with competition, prayer etc. Steve Connor, who was a professional athlete himself and deals daily with a host of well-known sport stars, knows the lifestyle from the inside and the pressures athletes face. He goes on to show us that there are clear parallels in the message of Christianity, and how that message can have a transforming effect on the life of sports men and woman of every discipline. You want to be on the winning team don't you?
Publishers Description John Charles Ryle 1816 1900 was the first Bishop of Liverpool England. After a dazzling sporting career at school and university poised on the verge of national recognition he gave it all up to become a minister in the Church of England.However his leadership abilities on the field of play stood out and prepared him for the difficult task of being an evangelical leader of a mixed diocese in the most sectarian of English cities. Throughout his period in office Ryle was respected by his colleagues to the extent that even one of his most strident opponents broke down and wept at the news of his death. He was able to master the difficult task of being firm in his beliefs and loving in his application of them. His gracious spirit is an example to us today. This is probably why many of Ryle's writings have been continuously in print for over 100 years. Here Ryle explains that divisive often derided and misapplied by advertising term 'born again'. He explains what being 'born again' means why it is necessary and how you can tell whether you are. Much of the value of this publication though lies in what Ryle writes next. In his gracious yet firm way Ryle devotes the majority of the book to explaining how the objections people have had to the doctrine should be handled and overcome with gentle persuasion.It is a supreme example of the art of persuasion.
