Some of you may know that I recently wrote a book entitled Game Day for the Glory of God: A Guide for Athletes, Fans, and Wannabes. In his incredible mercy, God has opened many doors for this book to be published through Crossway Books. The book will be out in September of this year. Here’s a little blurb that will accompany the book in Crossway catalogs:
Biblical guidance on playing, watching, and discussing sports in a God-glorifying manner, helping believers grow in both their love for God and their passion for holiness.
Scripture calls Christians to do everything for the glory of God. That means every thought, every word, and every deed are to be done in a way that brings pleasure and honor to him. Believe it or not, this includes playing, watching, and talking sports! But most of us fail to recognize how sports fit into the big picture of a God-glorifying life, unable to imagine that the God who created the universe might actually care about Little League games and Monday Night Football.
So how do we play, watch, and talk sports for God’s glory? Game Day for the Glory of God seeks to answer that question from a biblical perspective. Sports fan Stephen Altrogge aims to help readers enjoy sports as a gift from God and to see sports as a means of growing in godliness.
What a blessing to work with these folks!
