We live in a sports-crazed culture, where weddings are planned around football games and adult men shed tears when their team wins the championship.
So, can sports play a healthy role in the Christian life? Pastor and seminary professor David E. Prince believes it can. In fact, Prince says Christian families can use sports to teach their children not only about life, but about the Christian walk, too.
Prince is the author of the book, In The Arena: The Promise Of Sports For Christian Discipleship (B&H). He also is this week’s guest on Words of Wisdom.
Prince serves as the pastor of preaching and vision at Ashland Avenue Baptist Church in Lexington, Kentucky, and as an assistant professor of Christian preaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.
