Christianity is not a spectator sport!
The dedication and perseverance needed to live a vibrant Christian life is similar to that of an athlete preparing for competition. To be a follower of Christ means to be "in the game"—to live an active and purposeful spiritual life. And like an athlete, we need coaching in order to train successfully.
Author and sports enthusiast Kathy Johnston shares excerpts from the lives of various athletes, and points out that the same disciplines and strategies used in their training are necessary elements for spiritual development. She not only shows you how to incorporate these qualities into your life, but also assures you that your Heavenly Coach will empower you to finish your race well.
