There’s more to sports than the ethos of competition, entertainment, and commercialism expressed in popular media and discourse. Sport, Philosophy, and Good Lives discusses sport in the context of several traditional philosophical questions, including: What is a good human life and how does sport factor into it? To whom do we look for ethical guidance? What makes human activities or projects meaningful? Randolph Feezell examines these questions along with other relevant topics in the philosophy of sport such as the contribution of play to a meaningful life, the various reasons for pessimistic views of sport, the various claims that celebrated athletes are role models, and the seldom-questioned view that coaches are in a position to offer advice to athletes on how to live or on leadership skills. He also discusses the way that non-Western attitudes found in Buddhism, Taoism, and the Bhagavad Gita might be used to address the vulnerabilities of sports participants. Feezell draws from current sports issues, popular literature, and contemporary sports figures to shed light on the attraction and value of sports and examine the accompanying ethical issues.
A Christian Manifesto for Youth Sports in the United States
Author: Adam D. Metz
Publisher: Wipf and Stock Publishers
Beyond an occasional sports-inspired sermon illustration, sports are generally regarded as having little relevance to the Christian faith. More often, they are viewed as a welcome and safe reprieve from politics and religion. Quietly, however, as they avoid the discerning eye of the church, sports are slowly overtaking families and overwhelming parents. Under the labels "elite," "select," and "travel," a new experience of sports has taken root in American culture demanding financial burdens, time commitments, and heightened pressures never before seen. Community leaders from various public sectors have criticized many recent trends in youth sports, but, alas, where has the church been? This new "elite" expression of youth sports is quickly building an intimidating front against the church. As church attendance declines, "elite" youth sports participation is on the rise. This book ventures into the challenging, controversial, and powerful world of youth sports. Young people participate in sports more than just about any other activity, and the church has neglected its role in providing a voice of discernment for what participating in sports should look like. Christians are desperately in need of a manifesto for helping them wrestle with the complex, exciting, and often exhausting world of youth sports.
Ninety- Five percent of all Christians in America today have never led anyone to Jesus in their lifetime. Equally astonishing is the fact that much of today’s church growth is through membership transfers. Many Christians, Pastors and Church Leaders want to but are at a loss on how to successfully win the Unsaved, Uncertain, and Unconcerned to Christ. The Soul Winner’s Manual, by Bishop Spencer Jones is a powerful and effectively tool designed to teach men, women and leadership how to effectively do just that. Using the authoritativeness of scripture as the foundation for all soul winning components you will learn Bishop Spencer’s tried and true system of ways to influence and convince the lost of their need for Christ and Christians of their need to place high priority emphasis on evangelism outreaches into God’s vast harvest field. The SOUL WINNER’S MANUAL truly takes the struggle out of being greatly used by God to win the lost.

Holzmeier does an amazing job of helping us understand that life is essentially a spiritual experience whether we are aware of it or not.
