The Assist: A Gospel-Centered Guide to Glorifying God through Sports
Most Christian athletes know they are supposed to play for the glory of God, but what does that actually mean?
How can the Bible be practically applied to sports? In The Assist, Brian Smith combines the wisdom of God’s Word and his own experience working with athletes to help readers better understand how to integrate faith and sport. This book will show you how to:
- Use your sport to grow closer to God.
- Glorify God in every area of your sport, including practice, injuries, relating to teammates, and winning and losing graciously.
- Leverage your position as an athlete to maximize your impact in God’s kingdom.
To be a Christian athlete means much more than just giving your best and making sure God gets the credit. It means living out your faith in every aspect of your sport. Smith’s book is aimed at helping you do just that: it is designed to assist you in integrating your faith with your life as an athlete.
