“Like sex, money, politics, academia and so much else in life, sport can be used in a life-enhancing, God-honoring way, or abused and misused in ways that corrupt its noble purpose. This statement affirms, cautions and calls for Christian accountability in one of the most powerful forces in cultural life today.”

Dr. Timothy George

The Declaration’s affirmation of sport as a divine gift, and its call for Christians to be a faithful presence in sport, are timely and important. As sport occupies an ever more important place in our cultural landscape and presents a microcosm of our world’s problems and opportunities, it is vital that Christians enter into a positive, critical and nuanced dialogue with all those involved in this ‘God-honouring pursuit.’ The Declaration should be supported by all those with an interest in reflecting on faith, sport, and faith and sport.”
