Redemption :  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 Clay

"Kelly Dolan narrates world-champion athlete Bryan Clay’s compelling life story. In an even tone, Dolan perfectly renders Clay’s early academic indifference, involvement with drugs and gang violence, and family’s dysfunction. But despite unmanageable circumstances, Clay’s mother was steadfast in her belief in the power of God and in her son’s potential. Narrator Dolan’s portrayal of Clay’s mother has an authentic ring. Further, he provides a powerful account of the extraordinary disciplined training that developed Clay’s mind, spirit, and body, turning him into an Olympic decathlon medalist—silver 2004 and gold in 2008. Clay’s story of personal salvation explains why in competition he carries a banner that reads “. . . in Christ alone.” "
