Figured I’d better get this one posted now, while the NFL playoffs are still ongoing and (some of) the heroes of our book are still on another miracle run. . . . Fans of Paul David Tripp will also no doubt enjoy this, as he’d featured these players prominently in a event last spring.
In any case, sports fans of all types should find this book inspirational, as it’s about a group of players who truly take their faith seriously, and played through their share of adversity to reach the highest level of success in their sport: the first-ever Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl win. And yet, it’s clear that their success on the field has not been their “biggest win”. . . .
Joshua Cooley. The Biggest Win: Pro Football Players Tackle Faith. 192p., $15.99, New Growth Press.
The Biggest Win gives athletes and sports fans of all ages a unique, insider’s look into the lives and faith of six Christian NFL players from the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles Super Bowl team—Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Zach Ertz, Trey Burton, Jordan Hicks, and Chris Maragos. Through the ups and downs of their experiences, author Joshua Cooley shows how these high-profile athletes remain committed to God’s Word, genuine Christian discipleship, and sharing their faith. Using their voices and stories, The Biggest Win gives sports-minded readers hope and direction for living out their faith while competing. . . .
The Biggest Win combines biblical truths with practical direction on issues that every Christian faces—including dealing with adversity, competition, change, success, failure, and how to thrive by faith in a pressurized world. Encouraging male and female athletes in any sport, The Biggest Win guides them in finding their ultimate identity in Christ, not their athletic achievements, and assures them that their greatest prize is eternal life.
