“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.”
