The Goal and the Glory

The Goal and the Glory

Josh Davis

$24.99

Paperback
Why are many of us so profoundly moved by the drama of world-class sporting events? Perhaps it's because we are introduced to people who have set lofty goals, and then are invited to watch as they achieve those dreams. Here are real people who face hardships, setbacks, struggles and disappointments, just like we do. And somehow they make their childhood wishes into a reality!

- Publisher "No guts no glory" the saying goes. But how far do "guts" go in the midst of physical feats of great strength? Learn from at least a dozen Christian, Olympic gold-medal winners and Olympic contenders who tell their inspirational stories of finding God along their roads to glory. Experience the sweat and passion that goes into the making of a world-class athlete, while learning of these Christians' ultimate goals as competitive athletes and servants of God. For sixty days, plunge into each athlete's most personal moments at the games through each chapter's combination of worship, praise and evangelism. Run, jump and dive into these athletic experiences that reveal the role of friendship, the necessity of hard work and that teach the concepts of dedication and sacrifice. Learn of these athletes' preparation, pre-competition thoughts, faith and how each athlete has placed his or her dependence on God.
