“Coaches, players and parents often begin and end with X’s and O’s when determining excellence in sports. This Declaration gets behind the technical and tactical aspects of performance by beginning with the Y’s. It grounds the ensuing discussion and debate about what is good and true in sports in grander purposes related to God, others, self and the world we inhabit. This Declaration offers a wisdom-based approach to thinking about how sports can transform lives over against a transactional approach; i.e., a leadership style which uses the people of sports, all for personal validation, status and identity. I enthusiastically recommend and support such a vision.”

Joe Ehrmann

“The Declaration on Sport and the Christian Life is important. It serves both as a celebration and a warning, managing to identify the things we should embrace and the things we must try to change. Any Christian who reflects seriously on the Declaration will begin to discover ways in which Christians can become good sports, not spoilsports. We should be grateful for all the work that has gone into drafting it.
