Fit For Heaven: The Best Catholic Athletes and Coaches talk about Sport, Faith, Leadership, Family, and Heaven by Trent Beattie

Is it possible to integrate your faith with football, your beliefs with baseball, and your spirituality with soccer? Yes! Learn from the Pros. Trent Beattie talked with dozens of the world's best Catholic athletes-from All-Pro quarterback Philip Rivers to Olympic gold medalist Curt Tomasecicz-about integrating their sporting lives with their deeply held religious beliefs. This book is a compilation of their words of wisdom. Fit For Heaven is a perfect read for every Catholic husband, father, and son who is looking for practical, real-world ways to integrate his love for sports with his Catholic faith. Even though winning the World Series is a rarity, every man can play sports with charity.
