Each one however, has found something that means more to them than the sport—a meaning and a purpose that goes beyond the track or the field.This book will be an engaging and challenging read for anyone interested in sports and the athletes who bring fame to the game.More from the 10Testamonies series: City Lives by Marcus NodderA Passion for Life by Jonathan Carswell with Emma NewrickLife Stories by D.

This is a book of 17 short stories (18 if we include the Jonathan Carswell’s own testimony in the preface) of sports people whose lives have been given over to God, and who at some point in their lives and sporting careers came to really know Jesus and allow him to make the difference in their lives. These aren’t long biographies, indeed they are mostly just the right size to be used in any class room assembly or teaching session, and for the most part that is the feel they have to them; class room readers that will engage with the 13+ age range. Given the focus on sport due to the Olympics this is an incredibly handy guide to have especially as more than one Olympians story is told in here. There are also a number of stories from people that won’t play professional or competitive sport on Sundays, including both footballers and rugby players. In this way they are great object lessons too. It’s an easy to read book with a wide range of different sporting activities being represented, it even includes a pool players testimony amongst it’s stories, so there’s something for everyone in here, even those not into athletic sports.
