Men of Spirit Men of SportsThis is a book that takes a new look at sports and spirituality. Some of America’s greatest sports figures talk about the spiritual strength that sustained them in moments of glory and in moments of pain. Among those featured are: Mickey Mantle, Jackie Robinson, Bob Cousy, Roger Staubach, Mike Ditka, Gerry Faust, Jim O’Brien, Stan Musial, Ernie Banks, and Red Schoendienst.

Carew writes about many famous athletes, and the result is a fascinating book.

Men of Spirit, Men of Sports is about tough guys with a strong faith in God, and about how the games little boys play help form them as men. Carew profiles several sports figures of extraordinary faith…he has a gift for mixing tenderness with toughness, as you might expect from an altar boy who also played linebacker.

If God wants us all to be with him in Heaven, why did he put us on earth first?

This question has puzzled humans for centuries. I believe we were born into this world first for the same reason every player in the NFL starts his career tossing a pigskin in his own backyard: Whether it’s the gates of Heaven or the goalposts of the Super Bowl, we are not worthy, nor ready to stand before either until we are first prepared.
