Overview

The Jersey E?ect takes a look into the hearts and minds of athletes who achieved Super Bowl success and examines the battles they faced. It presents the stories of champions who desired to reflect glory back to God by using their “jersey” and the platform God had given them to make a positive difference in the world. Even so, sometimes their great intentions were hijacked by pride, materialism, distractions, and de?ciencies within their own character that were never truly understood until the ultimate success had come their way. Intended for players, coaches, and parents that want to learn and in turn teach important lessons about how to properly align their love of sports with God’s heart, The Jersey E?ect advocates for a full 360 degrees of in?uence: coach on player, player on coach, player on parents, parents on player, and team on community. The Jersey Effect demonstrates how to pursue the ultimate prize—a goal that has little to do with winning a championship ring and everything to do with how we can have a positive effect on those around us through the sports we love.

    The "Jersey Effect" is a great book that goes beyond the game of football. Each of us wear a jersey in some fashion, whether its in sports, at work, or at home. This book challenges each of us to look at how we are being used by God in this game of life. I enjoyed the stories from each of the players and coaches that were highlighted in the book. They are real people with real struggles in a society that wants to elevate them to a pedestal. Thank you for your insight and encouragement to keep sports in their proper perspective.

    "The Jersey Effect" is a sports-focused book, but the themes and messages inside are applicable for Christians in any career.
    "The Jersey Effect" discusses how to deal with success in your career along with all the pitfalls and temptations the world will offer. I was encouraged to see the vulnerability and read about the struggles these standout professional athletes allowed the public to see, especially in a profession that values the public image so highly.
    The book's format is easy to read with each chapter being a snapshot of how Colts' players used their platform/jersey in the game's highest stage to struggle and grow in their daily walk with Christ.
    Overall, this is a great book for anyone that's ever battled with the temptations of the world and finding one's true value in God alone. Great read!

    I loved Hunter Smith's transparency and his personal authenticit

    I loved Hunter Smith's transparency and his personal authenticity in the letters to his teammates... it was awesome that NFL insiders like Tony Dungy, Jeff Saturday, etc. were willing to share their faith-full stories about thier NFL journey. Powerful words are still ringing in my ears... deep messages about how to keep sports in proper perspective.
