“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.”

Anne-Wafula Strike MBE

“My experience of participating as an Olympian, and a Chaplain to Olympians, has broadened my perspective on the need for understanding the whole-person concept of being created in the image of God, i.e., spirit, mind and body. The “Declaration on Sport and the Christian Life” succinctly communicates how faith and sport interact in the sports world and the world-at-large. Many have argued that sport and faith oppose one another and do not fit in the same sentence, much less, the same arenas. The Declaration addresses this point of view and offers options that are thought provoking to one’s belief. I wholeheartedly endorse this Christian perspective on ‘Sport and the Christian Life’ from an athlete’s and chaplain’s point of view.”
