Meet more than a dozen professional players of the National Basketball Association. They are Christians first-and basketball players second. Learn how their faith has been a source of hope and strength in the high pressure world of professional sports. And how Christ has helped them avoid the temptations and pitfalls of NBA life.^^WHAT MAKES THESE ATHLETES GREAT?^Stamina. Skill. Natural ability. Agility. That's what many would say, but these athletes would all agree that Christ alone is their true source of greatness. Spiritual stamina and skill strengthen the Christian players in the NBA. Read inspiring stories of All-Star players devoted to their families, and of athletes who have created foundations to help kids. Each profile includes player photos, career statistics, and Questions/Answers on such topics as temptations, "trash talk," competition, and being a role model in the NBA.^^Read the stories of such outstanding players as:^*David Robinson, a reluctant basketball player who was only a part-time, average player until his second year of college^*Kevin Johnson, winner of the Presidential Point of Light Award for his work with young people in Sacramento^*Mark Price and Craig Ehlo, and the friendship that led Ehlo to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ^*A.C. Green, a leading spokesman for young people through his foundation that encourages sexual purity^
