William J. Baker is Bird and Bird Professor of History at the University of Maine.
-Publisher

William Baker opens by musing on the idea of Christ turning up unexpectedly at any time after his own lifetime, and the body of work this idea has spawned, including Levi's famous account of fascist Italy, Christ Stopped at Eboli. Baker examines the meaning of the Olympic Games in modern society, and how they depend on and have consequences for modern religion. He covers such topics as the religious origins of organized sport, the athletic pleasures of the flesh, when evangelicals take to the field, and going for gold and other false gods. If Christ Came to the Olympics is an entertaining and thorough examination of this most important of modern institutions.
-Publisher

If Christ came to the Olympics, what would He see? What would He hear? What would He think of the modern Games? And what would be His response?
