Redemption (Library Edition) : A Rebellious Spirit, a Praying Mother, and the Unlikely Path to Olympic Gold
Author: Bryan Clay, Joel Kilpatrick
The true nature of redemption is remarkable. And no one knows that better than Bryan Clay—an Olympic champion who was once a traveler on the dark road to destruction. From his broken family to his troubled youth, Clay’s odds in life were more in favor of ending in criminality than in athletic victory on the world stage. But thanks to his mother—a woman of conviction, relentlessly dedicated to prayer—God’s design for his life began to develop in a most miraculous way, turning Clay into a champion of more than just athletics but also of faith and family. Priceless lessons of trust, perseverance, and hope await as Redemption reminds us that life is precious and—just like the sport that affords Clay the title of World’s Greatest Athlete—every second counts. With an inside glimpse into the fascinating world of track and field, re-discover a God whose plans often unfold exactly like Clay’s life: victorious against all odds. “I have been put on earth not only to win medals and enjoy the thrill of competition but also, ultimately, to point people to the faithfulness of God.” —Bryan ClayReview:
