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 athletes live in a spiritual offseason. They have faith. They know the Word. But they sit back and watch others take the lead.
A book for Christian athletes, 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.A voice from inside a Division-I collegiate football team shares his own insights, struggles, and victories as a believer in Jesus. Jonathan Evans' shares of his involvement with FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) and his proactive desire to see Christ glorified. His stories and experiences speak truth to anyone who desires to live for Christ in a predominantly secular environment.
Today's sports world is heading out of bounds. There is too much showmanship and not enough sportsmanship. What'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.

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.
