Kneeling in the End Zone | Spiritual Lessons from the World of Sports (Tinley)
Kneeling in the End Zone takes the often overlapping worlds of sports and religion and turns them upside down. Athletes, coaches, fans and broadcasters often bring faith into the world of sports, whether through on-field prayers, post-game interviews, biblical bleacher signs or using faith language or scriptural metaphors to describe an incredible play or performance. Kneeling in the End Zone aims to do the exact opposite, using sports as a lens through which to look at the Christian faith. It uses sports as a metaphor, drawing parallels between scriptural stories and memorable tales from the field or court, and looks at those transcendent moments in sports history that reveal larger truths about life.
