Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
The "Spirit of Play" series from Augsburg Books recognizes the importance of sports and recreation in the lives of our youth, yet imparts the message that it is God who has given them the talent needed to excel in their chosen field. Each book is made up of high quality black and white photographs, with accompanying Bible quotations. The Bible quotations chosen are designed to go along with the photos, and give young people a new perspective on the activity pictured. For example, the Bible quote, "Your beginnings will seem humble, so prosperous will be your future," is accompanied by photos of very young girls (probably 4 to 6 years old) getting ready for their dance class to begin. The Bible verse, "Be cheerful and enjoy life while you are young! Do what you want and find pleasure in what you see," shows a teenage dancer doing a floor pose with one arm raised over his head, finger pointing heavenward, and a huge smile on his face, showing that he is thoroughly enjoying himself. While there is no story here, just beautiful photographs and Bible verses, this book shows the glory of God in dance, and will be treasured by any aspiring Christian dancer. It is an excellent resource for youth ministers, coaches, teachers, and parents who want to help the youth in their lives encounter the Christian message with vim and vigor. 2003, Augsburg Books, Ages 12 up.
