“This Declaration fills a notable gap in the conversation about Christianity and culture, which all too easily floats into a disembodied world of ideas. The best culture we human beings can create is always, wonderfully, embodied—and sport embodies the human quest to make something of the world in a uniquely powerful way. We also deeply need a healthy vision of competition, not just on the field and the court but in our society and economy. Coaches, athletes, and spectators who embrace this declaration’s wise approach to competition and play will be better equipped to play, work, and serve faithfully in our world.”

Andy Crouch

“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.”
