Joe Gibbs - the man behind Joe Gibbs Racing (NASCAR) and two stints as head coach of the Washington Redskins - has released a book with his new "team" of experts.
Game Plan for Life is written for men. I think that there are some women who would find a book all about sport references a little boring, then others would enjoy it. I do think that this would make a fantastic gift for the man in your life! Every Christian sports fan would love this book! I know I did!
Sometimes in the sports world there seems to be so much corruptions and hatred. It was so nice and refreshing to read about a man who lives for the LORD and isn't afraid to show it. I wish more could be this way.
I really enjoyed the way each chapter is devoted to an area of life men are concerned about. Gibbs asks 11 different people to address each topic after he shares a few pages from his own life.
The topics include:
Finances by Ron Blue
Health by Dr Walt Larimore
Relationships by Don Meredith
Vocation by Dr Os Guinness
The Bible by Josh McDowell
God by Dr Ken Boa
Creation by Dr John Lennox
Sin and Addiction by Ravi Zacharias
Salvation by Chuck Colson
Purpose by Dr Tony Evans
Heaven by Randy Alcorn
I am a HUGE NFL fan and a NASCAR fan! So I really enjoy reading about when the men involved are walking with Christ in the national media, I greatly enjoyed reading about the struggles and success of Coach Gibbs and how he became a devoted man of God.
You will too! I highly recommend!
