“It is wonderful to see serious intellectual inquiries into the nature of sports and also the nature of Christianity, and how these two might nourish each other, or harm each other — have multiplied during the last fifty years. And how much deeper and more sophisticated the worldwide discussion has become. The ‘Declaration on Sport and Christian Life’ invites us to solidify clarities already achieved, to raise new questions, and to seek best practices in the two realms we love: Christian faith and the athletic agon.”

Dr. Michael Novak

“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!”
