Hard Fighting Soldier: Finding God in Trials, Tragedies, and Triumphs by Chette Williams

Chette Williams faced a crossroads: team player or hoodlum. At nineteen he was a mean, bitter, angry young man, and when Coach Pat Dye kicked him off the Auburn University football team, nobody was surprised. In that decisive moment, as his dream of playing Southeastern Conference football was crashing around him, Chette turned to a teammate he had despised. That teammate pointed the way to grace.

For twenty-fives years now, God has been using Chette as an instrument of His grace. In Hard Fighting Soldier: Finding God in Trials, Tragedies, and Triumphs, the Rev. Chette Williams, full-time chaplain of the Auburn University football team, tells how his life was transformed and how God continues to use him to influence football players at Auburn and beyond.

A wide receiver scores an eighty-yard touchdown, and instead of celebrating he drops to a knee in a prayer of thanksgiving. A defensive lineman seeks out the father who abandoned him as a child so he can offer forgiveness. Coaches and players share tears of joy and grief in powerful prayer sessions. All are evidence of God's power to bring change through college football. Experience the power for yourself through Hard Fighting Soldier.
