Overview

Biblical guidance on playing, watching, and discussing
sports in a God-glorifying manner, helping believers grow in both
their love for God and their passion for holiness.


Scripture calls Christians to do everything for the glory of
God. That means every thought, every word, and every deed are to be
done in a way that brings pleasure and honor to him. Believe it or
not, this includes playing, watching, and talking sports! But most
of us fail to recognize how sports fit into the big picture of a
God-glorifying life, unable to imagine that the God who created the
universe might actually care about Little League games and
Monday Night Football.


So how do we play, watch, and talk sports for God's glory?
Game Day for the Glory of God seeks to answer that
question from a biblical perspective. Sports fan Stephen Altrogge
aims to help readers enjoy sports as a gift from God and to see
sports as a means of growing in godliness.
