"Todayrs" s sports world is heading out of bounds. There is too much showmanship and not enough sportsmanship. Whatrs" s missing is Christian character between the lines of competition. This book is a great resource to help you become the athlete and teammate God designed you to be." Les Steckel President, Fellowship of Christian Athletes "Winning the Super Bowl was great. And being a NASCAR owner has been wonderful. But neither of those accomplishments eclipses the joy of knowing Christ. I encourage athletes and coaches alike to "Get in the Game"for a true spiritual workout." Joe Gibbs Coach, Washington Redskins "Every aspiring athlete should read this book by Dr. Tony Evans and his son Jonathan Evans. Having coached for 37 years and now spend every day of my life working with coaches, I clearly understand the value of clear and precise advice that will make each student a more rounded individual. After all, we are all physical, mental and spiritual." Grant Taft Executive Director, The American Football Association "This book is a book of life that talks about not only my athletic life but also my spiritual life, which is the most important thing." Herschel Walker ALL-PRO NFL running back "Athletes who want to expand and grow in their faith will benefit from reading Pastor Evans' newest book-"Get in the Game. "It cites numerous real life examples that all athletes can relate to, revealing the importance of a relationship between religion and athletics. The unique exercises following each chapter will help readers grow. "Get in theGame"shows how having a strong personal faith helps athletes excel in the use of their God-given talents - both on and off the playing field. It's a real spiritual workout and I heartily recommend it." Roger Staubach NFL Hall of Fame, Dallas Cowboy quarterback
A competitive athlete trains for one thing--the game. Having the skills and knowing how to play aren't enough. You need to perform when it matters. Yet so many of those same athletes live in a spiritual offseason. They have faith. They know the Word. But they sit back and watch others take the lead. Get in the Game encourages athletes to transfer their drive and determination to the spiritual realm and shows that there is far more than a game on the line.
