Playing with Purpose : Inside the Lives and Faith of the NFL's Top New Quarterbacks
Series: Playing with Purpose
Author: Mike Yorkey
They dominated college football and stood strong for their faith. Now, as they storm the NFL, learn all about “the three quarterbacks”: Bradford, McCoy, and Tebow. Dubbed the “Holy Trinity” by sportswriters, the Oklahoma Sooners’ Sam Bradford, the Texas Longhorns’ Colt McCoy, and the Florida Gators’ Tim Tebow are now eyeing professional glory. But starring on Sunday afternoons follows years of developing Christian faith on Sunday mornings. Playing with Purpose will introduce you to three young men of both physical and spiritual strength, athletes at the top of their game who also speak publicly and convincingly of their belief in God. Includes a section of color photographs!
With the pre-game prayer, Christianity and football aren't complete strangers to one another. Playing with Purpose looks at three new figures in the National Football League, hailed as both good Christians and good role models. An analysis of how faith will stack up on the field, Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, and Tim Tebow are discussed as both players and people, and provides an intriguing debate for Christian NFL fans. Playing with Purpose is a strong pick for any analytical football collection and for Christian studies collections.
