Overview

God and Football: Faith and Fanaticism in the SEC by Chad Gibbs

Renowned humorist and die-hard football fan Chad Gibbs knows he cannot serve two masters, but at times his faith is overwhelmed by his fanaticism. He is not alone.

This year, over six million people will attend an SEC football game. They'll spend thousands on season tickets, donate millions to athletic departments, and-for three months a year-they'll order their entire lives around the schedule of their favorite team.

Gibbs and his six million friends do not live in a spiritually void land where such borderline idol worship would normally be accepted. They live in the American South, where according to the 2008 American Religious Identification Survey, 84 percent identify themselves as Christian.

This apparent contradiction Gibbs sees in his own life, and in millions of others', led him on a journey to each of the twelve SEC schools to spend a game-day weekend with rabid Christian fans of various ages and denominations.

The result... God and Football, an illuminating, laugh-out-loud look at the place where faith, football, and fanaticism meet.

Terrific read!! I enjoyed this book so much that I bought several copies as gifts for Christian SEC football fans/friends. It's original, well-written, TRUE, and very funny!! If you're a true SEC football fan (male or female), you'll recognize yourself in this book. I hope the author writes a sequel to GOD & FOOTBALL. GEAUX TIGERS!!

Easy read, and for a dedicated football junkie dead on target. Chad says things I have thought on may occasions about religion and football. Very humorous and thought provoking at the same time. Great gift book also.
