Overview


Success. Influence. Accolades. Winning.
 
Legendary Football Coach Bobby Bowden has it all.
 
As the all-time winningest coach in Division I football history, Coach Bowden has statues erected in his honor and national charities and awards named after him.  Four generations of fans have heard his message and witnessed his results. He built a successful career, climbed to the top of his field, and has a loving family. It's what we all want.
 
And yet, Coach Bowden, who, as he puts it, is in the "fourth quarter" of his life, has a message for us all. The success . . . the influence . . . the accolades . . . the wins. . . none of it matters if our lives are not rooted in faith. God trumps our best hand.  He always wins.  Which is how it should be.  That is the wisdom he wants to share.  Let him tell you why faith and happiness are inseparable.
 
No matter your life circumstance, The Wisdom of Faith shows you what really matters—from the perspective of a man who has made the journey. In his New York Times best-selling book, Coach Bowden looks back over eighty years and invites us to look forward with him into the future.

Meet the Author


Bobby Bowden is known as much for his affable charm as he is for his championship teams. Bowden, a New York Times best-selling author, has coached young men in seven decades, and is the winningest coach in major college football history. He guided Florida State University to more than three hundred victories, two national championships, twelve Atlantic Coast Conference titles, finishing in the top five in the country in fourteen straight seasons, and he also led the Seminoles to Bowl Games in twenty-eight consecutive seasons during his thirty-four-year tenure.

The patriarch of college football’s most famous coaching family, Bowden remains heavily involved in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, annually awarding The National Bobby Bowden Award to a student-athlete for achievement on and off the field, including his conduct as a faith model in the community. Bowden was inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame in 2006. He and his wife of sixty-one years, Ann, live in Tallahassee, Florida.

    As a Christian, this book definitely rejuvenated my faith. Bowde

    As a Christian, this book definitely rejuvenated my faith. Bowden uses life experiences and the journey of his faith to describe how to handle any life situation as a follower of Jesus and to handle that situation in a Christ-like manner. His words provide hope and positivity and the verses made me directly turn to my Bible and search for more. I truly feel this is a must read for all Christians and for those in question or who don't know Jesus, this book will surely make you question that choice and relieve your doubts. The book was very intelligently written and I honestly could not put it down. Thank you, Bobby Bowden, for providing encouragement and hopeful and healing words to guide a Christian through life in remaining a Christ-like mindset and words for strengthening and relying on God through every life situation. The book had devotional like aspects which provided means to delve deeper in His Word, learn and grow in faith, as well as enjoy a book written by an awe-inspiring coach and person. The book has truly impacted my life and I have told as many people about it who will listen because I'd like for it to impact their lives as well. Thanks again!
