“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!”

“As the consummate practical theologian, Jesus cared deeply about topics that were on people’s minds, and so should we. For the first time, we have a very thoughtful articulation of why sport matters, of what are its perils and possibilities, and of how Christ-followers ought to think Christianly about a topic that captures the hearts and minds of millions around the world. We’ve needed this Declaration for decades, and finally it’s here. Thanks be to God!”
