Written with the sports fan in mind, Game Plan for Life is an "average Joe's" guide to what the Bible has to say about such topics as relationships; finances; physical, emotional, and spiritual health; finding the right vocation; living a life of purpose; and overcoming sin and addiction. Written by 3-time Super Bowl and NASCAR championship winning coach/owner Joe Gibbs, edited by Jerry Jenkins, and featuring contributions from Randy Alcorn, Ravi Zacharias, John Lennox, Tony Evans, Chuck Colson, Josh McDowell, Don Meredith, Walt Larimore, Ron Blue, Ken Boa, and Os Guinness, the New York Times best-selling Game Plan for Life shows readers how to live a balanced, God-centered, purpose-filled life, using examples from Coach Gibbs' own storied championship careers as a backdrop. This book is a perfect blend of sports and basic theology, designed to bring God's Word home to sports fans of all generations.
One of the most successful coaches of all time, Joe Gibbs coached the Washington Redskins for 12 seasons, leading them to eight playoff appearances, four NFC Championship titles, and three Super Bowl titles. In 1996, Joe was enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame, with an overall winning percentage of .638 – second only to the legendary Vince Lombardi and John Madden. After retiring at the end of the 1992 season, Joe switched his focus to his NASCAR team, Joe Gibbs Racing, which has already won three championships under his ownership ('00, '02 & '05), and is currently poised to claim a fourth in 2008.
A deeply committed Christian, Joe has made no secret of his faith, speaking at numerous prayer breakfasts, advertising Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ on the hood of one of his race cars at the Daytona 500, and most recently, dedicating his time and resources to building a special ministry through Joe Gibbs racing called The Game Plan for Life about which he has written a book by the same title.
