For more than fifty-seven years Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA) has presented to athletes and coaches – who have an enor- mous influence on students -- the challenge of receiving Jesus as Lord and living the Christ life in every relationship. The Sports Bible is designed to support this mission of touching millions of lives, one heart at a time, with the truth of Jesus Christ.
This special edition carries the full text of the Holman Christian Standard Bible together with 16 full-color four-page inserts that will jump start Bible study for both individual reading and group sessions. Each insert includes the photo and Christian testimony of a well-known professional athlete, devotions, and sports principles that equip and encourage students to make a difference for Christ.
The featured athletes include Major League Baseball’s Mark Teixeira, the National Football League’s Aaron Kampman, Drew Brees, and Tony Dungy, and the National Basketball Association’s Avery Johnson and Kyle Korver. NASCAR contributors include Joe Gibbs and Trevor Bayne. There are also testimonies from Jarome Iginla (hockey), Zach Johnson (golf), track stars Allyson Felix and Ryan Hall, and the WNBA’s Tamika Catchings and Ruth Riley.
Bound in black simulated leather, The Sports Bible also features two maps, a brief topical concordance, Bible dictionary, presentation page, “What the Cross Means to You” essay, ribbon marker, and smart phone accessible QR codes linking to online FCA videos.
