What Sports’ Greatest Rivalries Teach Us About Loving Our Enemies...

In his first book, the best-selling God & Football: Faith and Fanaticism in the SEC, humorist Chad Gibbs explored his own struggles to balance faith in God with passion for pigskin. Now Gibbs is back asking how Christian fans can love their enemies, when we can’t even love rival fans.

From the cross-country culture war of Lakers - Celtics, to the cross-state hate-fest of Alabama – Auburn, Gibbs spent one year attending the most intense rivalry games in sports (Yankees - Red Sox, Duke - Carolina, and many more), observing the darker side of fan culture, and pondering the problems rivalry games present to the Christian fan.

The result… Love Thy Rival, an enlightening, laugh-a-minute look at what sports’ greatest rivalries teach us about one of Jesus’ most difficult commands: Love your enemies.

Chad has written this very well and it is really addressing a very important issue in our society with sports fans treating their rival fans poorly. It is a great book for intense sports fans with that big game coming up.
