The Declaration’s affirmation of sport as a divine gift, and its call for Christians to be a faithful presence in sport, are timely and important. As sport occupies an ever more important place in our cultural landscape and presents a microcosm of our world’s problems and opportunities, it is vital that Christians enter into a positive, critical and nuanced dialogue with all those involved in this ‘God-honouring pursuit.’ The Declaration should be supported by all those with an interest in reflecting on faith, sport, and faith and sport.”
