Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Athletics can be a great way to learn lessons about everyday life. But what is really special is when you can take athletic lessons and apply them to your spiritual life. Heart of a Competitor takes a look at how the tests we face as players and coaches can help us grow as Christians.
- Coach Tony Dungy, Former Head Coach, Indianapolis Colts

In the Heart of a Competitor, you will see that it is just as important to train spiritually as it is to train physically and mentally. When you focus on training the total body, it will take you to the next level.
- Tamika Catchings, WNBA Player and Four-term Olympic Gold Medalist

Having a competitive nature obviously affects things on the pitching mound, but it also translates into life off the mound. As believers, we are called to work with all of our hearts, as though working for the Lord and not for man (see Colossians 3:23). That means baseball, and that means life. Heart of a Competitor is an awesome resource for believers—both on and off the field. Each devotional is an encouragement to live and compete for the Lord’s glory. Life isn’t always about winning a game; it’s about living for the Lord in all that we do. This book helps to keep that in perspective.
- Clayton Kershaw, Major League Baseball Pitcher and Co-author of Arise, National League Cy Young Award Winner (2011), Roberto Clemente Award Winner (2012)

FCA is cultivating Christian principles in communities throughout the world by encouraging, equipping, and empowering others to serve as examples and to make a difference.

He has coauthored three books— One Word That Will Change Your Life, WisdomWalks, and WisdomWalks SPORTS—and he is the author and editor of eleven FCA books. He still plays and coaches lacrosse and enjoys running marathons. He and his wife Dawn reside in Overland Park, Kansas, with their three children.
