We live in a sports-obsessed world. From fans wearing their favorite team’s colors to high school soccer players practicing after school, we encounter sports every day. Nothing else in our culture produces so much passion and intrigue. Such obsession, for the Christian, must produce critical reflection. How should the Christian think about sports? What does Christ have to do with athletic competition? Can sports be redeemed? In the Arena will answer these questions so that readers:
  • Understand how the gospel of Christ shapes our understanding and enjoyment of sports.
  • Receive practical instruction on how to use sports in parenting and discipleship.
  • Become confident in using the arena of sports for discipleship, parenting, and recreation.
