Item description for Get in the Game: An Athlete's Guide for the Spiritual Journey by Jonathan Evans, Tony Evans & Dillon Burroughs...
Overview A competitive athlete trains for one thing?the game. Having the skills and knowing how to play aren?t enough?you need to perform when it matters. Yet so many of those same athletes live in a spiritual offseason. They have faith. They know the Word. But they sit back and watch others take the lead. Get in the Game encourages athletes to transfer their drive and determination to the spiritual realm and shows that there is far more than a game on the line.
Publishers Description Regardless of your sport, whether football, baseball, swimming, volleyball, or hockey, one thing remains the same - to win, you must get in the game. No amount of practice or preparation provides victory without the moment of truth when the plays on paper become the collisions and jolts on the field. While this may seem obvious to an athlete, many of them miss the critical spiritual parallel their sport represents. Too many Christian athletes are content to be on the team or watch as a fan rather than get in the game of living out an authentic Christian faith.
