A GODLY GAME PLAN
FOR THE MANLY MAN
OK, guys, this book's for you. It's designed especially for manly men who love sports -- guys who'd rather watch Peyton Manning and Kurt Schilling than some fluffy chick flick. You're into NFL receivers, the best arms in the Majors, the best guards in the NBA, and NASCAR drivers. But you're also a guy who tries to spend time in God's Word and get your plays called by the Coach upstairs.
Dennis "The Swan" Swanberg has you and your sports-minded buddies in mind in "Man Does Not Live by Sports Alone, " because this upbeat, humorous book isn't just about guy stuff; it's also about "God" stuff. Thirty personal devotionals double as springboards for accountability-group discussion with your friends about God's playbook. Each devotional contains:
- "A Word from the Coach" in a key Bible text
- "Warmups" questions to ponder and sports-related quotes
- "Going Deep" thought and heart challenges
- "Recap" summaries and reinforcing scriptures
- "In the Huddle" discussion starters
- "Game Plan" life applications
- And "Game Notes" pages to record your thoughts and responses
This book offers a game plan for tackling the tough issues in the game of life and will help you do more than just stay in the game -- it will give you strategies for being a winner
"It's not enough to be a manly man who talks about manly stuff.
You've also got to be a godly man who talks and thinks about God stuff.
When you do, you'll be a winner in the game of life.
-- The Swan"

Reviews - What do customers think about Man Does Not Live by Sports Alone: Devotions for Men?

Use This Book to Combine Sports and a Love of God  Nov 26, 2006
I love the quotation from Billy Graham in the opening pages of this book: "Whatever you love most. Be it sports, pleasure, business or God. That is your god." It's true most men live and breath sports and if it's playing on television, then you have it turned on in your home.

Here's the perfect gift for this type of person because it uses sports examples to spur godly living. Thirty devotions or chapters are included and each one includes a series of thought-provoking questions (called the warmup) followed by a brief devotion (called going deep, with a recap (a summary thought), an "in the huddle" section (where you consider the application to the devotional thought), a game plan (where you pick up some ideas to apply it to your life), and finally a page called game notes, where you write your personal thoughts from the reading.

Anyone can complete a chapter in a few minutes--either early in the morning or on a lunch break or in the evening. Each chapter is well-written and applicable to any sports-loving man.
