About:

The Biggest Win gives athletes and sports fans of all ages a unique, insider’s look into the lives and faith of six Christian NFL players from the 2017 Philadelphia Eagles’ Super Bowl championship team: Carson Wentz, Nick Foles, Zach Ertz, Trey Burton, Jordan Hicks, and Chris Maragos. Through the ups and downs of their experiences, Joshua shows how these high-profile athletes remain committed to God’s Word, genuine Christian discipleship, and sharing their faith. Using their voices and stories, The Biggest Win gives sports-minded readers hope and direction for living out their faith while competing.

The Biggest Win combines biblical truths with practical direction on issues that every Christian faces, including dealing with adversity, competition, change, success, failure, and how to thrive by faith in a pressurized world. Encouraging male and female athletes in any sport, The Biggest Win guides them in finding their ultimate identity in Christ, not their athletic achievements, and assures them that their greatest prize is eternal life.

My thoughts:

I love football (Michigan and Lions football mostly).

You might not guess that about me. I’ve been known yell at the t.v. and jump out of my seat when I am watching it.

Anyway, I really enjoyed this book. It was so encouraging to read about pro-football players that have a genuine faith in God. How they truly rely on Him.

I loved too, that this book could encourage any athlete and how God can use them in their team. I am thinking my daughter should read this, as she plays on her volleyball team. This give a great perspective on how you can play for the glory of God and not our own.

I don’t even think you have to love football to enjoy this book, but it might help 🙂

  1. I like that there have been several books coming out by pro-football players who are Christians. Haven’t heard of this one yet but looks interesting! (I’m a Colts fan 😉 lol)
