Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 160641092X, Hardcover)

Why do we love sports so much? Perhaps it s because a basketball, baseball, or football game is like a miniature lifetime an unscripted, unpredictable drama where determination, adversity, persistence, exhilaration, and disappointment are all acted out in front of us.

The last-second three-pointer. The ninth-inning grand slam. The fourth and goal to go with time running out. In so many ways, the drama of sports mirrors the drama of life, where we all strive to overcome adversity and defeat with courage and determination. Drawing from the observations and stories of coaches, players, Church leaders, and even a few personal experiences, John Bytheway presents life lessons from the wide world of sports that all will appreciate. (Parents will appreciate that he also includes a few lessons not to learn from sports, including boasting, taunting, and the like.) Athletes, former athletes, and armchair quarterbacks of all ages will enjoy Sports: Life Lessons from Court, Field, and Gridiron.
