“As a New Jersey kid in the 1950’s, and a passionate Brooklyn Dodgers fan, I was aware of the dangers of idolatry–especially in my friends who cheered for the Yankees! Since those days, the dangers have intensified–so much so that we desperately need some careful spiritual reflection, informed by good theology, that issues in practical guidance for both the Christian community and the larger culture. This marvelous Declaration is not only an excellent start, but it actually sets forth the kind of wise insights that can move the process of discernment ahead!”

Dr. Richard J. Mouw

“The ‘Declaration on Sport and Christian Life’ provides an invaluable resource for Christians involved in sport and anybody who is interested in the sport-faith relationship. As a practising Christian and Paralympic athlete, the content of the Declaration offers me a clear point of reference, with regard to how to, think about, and play, sport. It is my hope that this ‘foundational statement’ will be the catalyst for a ‘renewed vision’ of sport at all levels of competition.”
