In Jesus' name we pray; on His team we play! Maybe you have been told that you're one of the most dedicated players on the team. Or maybe that is what you want to be. When it comes to your dedication to God's team--the one that matters most--what kind of player would Jesus say you are? Just as an athlete is recruited to play a sport, Jesus recruits you to play in the spiritual game of life. Standards that make a good athlete include strength, confidence, and hard work. What about God's standards? We can use God's Word to evaluate the way we choose to live. Every effective team works toward a common goal. The purpose of this Bible study and devotional is to help encourage, inspire, and build committed Christian athletes who desire to consistently follow Christ's game plan. No more "game-day-only" athletes. Playing on God's Team is about being an everyday follower of Jesus, on and off the field, in and out of season!

J-Rod moves like a small battle tank on the court, his face mean, staring down his opponents. “I play just like my father,” he says. “Before my father died, he was a problem on the court. I’m a problem.” Playing basketball for him fuses past and present, conjuring his father’s memory into a force that opponents can feel in every bone-breaking drive to the basket. On the street every ballplayer has a story. Onaje X. O. Woodbine, a former streetball player who became an All-Star Ivy Leaguer, brings the sights and sounds, hopes and dreams of street basketball to life. Big games have a trickster figure and a master of black talk whose commentary interprets the game for audiences. The beats of hip-hop and reggae make up the soundtrack, and the ball players are half-men, half-heroes, defying the ghetto’s limitations with their flights to the basket. Streetball is rhythm and flow, and during its peak moments, the three rings of the asphalt collapse into a singular band, every head and toe pressed against the sidelines, caught up in the spectacle. Basketball is popular among young black American men, but not because, as many claim, they are “pushed by poverty” or “pulled” by white institutions to play it. Black men choose to participate in basketball because of the transcendent experience of the game. Through interviews with and observations of urban basketball players, Onaje X. O. Woodbine composes a rare portrait of a passionate, committed, and resilient group of athletes who use the court to mine what urban life cannot corrupt. If people turn to religion to reimagine their place in the world, then black streetball players are indeed the adepts of the asphalt.

Using illustrations and analogies from the world of sports, The Home Team by Clint Archer presents the Christian family as a team. He highlights the one-flesh union of husband and wife as the fundamental team for God's design of society, the family, and marriage. Facing challenges together this cohesive team must not allow division to weaken their union. As children are added, Mom and Dad play their unique and essential roles to strengthen the expanding team. The family must close ranks on opponents to God's design, tackle obstacles, and fortify the bonds in their huddle. In the unity and synergy of teamwork each player is uniquely positioned to advance the team's objective. The goal is to give God glory, and enjoy the blessings and joy that come with obedience.

T. C. Stalling, who starred as Tony Jordan in the hit faith-based film War Room, shares an amazing and inspirational story of courageously pursuing his God-given purpose. Then in 14 days he will equip and encourage you to do the same! The only thing that can stop the plan of God for your life from succeeding is you. This is not because you have the “power” to stop God. It’s because He does not force His divine will on anyone, and instead, graciously allows us to choose what we do with it. Stopping the plan of God for your life from succeeding only happens one way—by not choosing to accept and pursue it. Why would anyone not want God’s plan for their lives? Maybe doubt, fear, uncertainty? Some people do not even know that God has a specific purpose and plan for their time on earth. The Pursuit contains 14 days of 14 Scriptures with 14 inspirational devotions, combined with real-life examples of how to apply each pursuit principle. Knowing that the one and only all-powerful God of the universe has designed an unstoppable plan for your life should cause you to chase after this plan with everything you have! You are God’s creation. You have your own God-given purpose that is waiting to be pursued. Will you pursue it? Get ready. 14 days could change everything.

“No football fan will want to miss this one.” —PUBLISHERS WEEKLY “A searing character study…a breathless, can’t-put-it-down read.” —LOS ANGELES TIMES “As savvy, dirt-dishing expose.” —KIRKUS REVIEWS From nationally-acclaimed journalist and ESPN commentator Skip Bayless, the newly updated eBook edition of the classic bestseller GOD'S COACH. First published in 1990, this unforgettable expose tears the metallic blue shine off the legendary star, revealing the truth about ‘America’s Team’ and its beloved head coach Tom Landry, whose much-regaled Christian charity extended to strangers everywhere, yet stopped short of the team who labored under him. From the hangover that led Jerry Jones to buy the team, to the wild ride of the Staubach era, Bayless strips away the image of the team created by the most powerful PR machine in sports, revealed by insiders willing to break their silence. Packed with unparalleled insight into one of the most storied franchises in the history of sports, GOD'S COACH is a compelling revelation about a corrupt football franchise that dared call itself America’s Team. Skip Bayless appears daily as the host of ESPN’s First Take; his commentary appears regularly on ESPN.com. A former columnist for the Dallas Morning News, DALLAS TIMES HERALD, CHICAGO TRIBUNE, and SAN JOSE MERCURY NEWS, and sportswriter for the LOS ANGELES TIMES and MIAMI HERALD. In addition to GOD'S COACH, he is the author of THE BOYS and HELL-BENT.

A Sinner was a 33 year old ordinary English working class man, content and happy with his family life. One day he curiously attends a Christian Fellowship in a local community centre. After many visits and much thought he eventually accepts Christ as his personal saviour. Two years later he finds he is given a preaching commitment. Here is his ‘lay’ preachers notes of some 20 years, biblical expositions with historical and contemporary commentaries. It is a warts and all record, not only of serous scriptural sermons but also on church and personal life experiences some humorous some tragic. He is critical of much of ‘established religion’ and the fact he reluctantly uses a pen name tells of his fears of the changing face of his country and shows his belief that much of its freedoms for Christians and free speech in general has been and is being lost. He holds no theological exams or college training and does not qualify for what he describes as the ‘hindrance’ of a dog collar, but believes in Gods Holy Spirit that has and does convict man if mans heart is willing to be open to Him. So are any or any part of these words Gods word? That’s for you with the Holy Spirit to decide.

Do you dare let Jesus take control of your life? Predictability. Control. Safety. Comfort. Jesus challenges God’s man to throw all those words out the window. Because, when it comes to your faith, all the energy spent eliminating risk from your life actually becomes a barrier to progress in your spiritual journey. Jesus said, “If you try to keep your life for yourself you will lose it. But if you give up your life for my sake…you will find true life” (Mark 8:35). There really is no such thing as the “safe life” when you are committed to Christ–when you seek to become God’s man. Instead, Jesus personally challenges you to bet your life totally on him. Risk is for men who are ready to go to the next level in their faith–and ready to say goodbye to playing it safe when it comes to radically trusting their Savior. Look for the Risk Workbook– a hands-on guide for personal or group study! From the Trade Paperback edition.

JOHN 10:10 "I HAVE COME THAT THEY MAY HAVE LIFE, AND THAT THEY MAY HAVE IT MORE ABUNDANTLY." In many ways, life is like a football game. In times of abundant living, when everything is going your way, you gain a few yards and make a touchdown. But equally as certain there are times when you lose a few yards or you are tackled on the way to your goal. So how do you prepare yourself for life's ups and downs? You get out God's Playbook and see what His game plan is for you. Aubrey Johnson points out that a coach, including our heavenly Coach, "can draw up perfect plays, put them in a book for you, and remind you to do your homework, but he cannot study and practice for you." That's where strategy comes in. Using a football field analogy, Johnson identifies 10 strategies for Christian growth - things such as commitment, discipline and perseverance - to help you gain yardage on reaching your goal. Once you've figured out your strengths and weaknesses as a player on God's team, you begin the task of following the strategies presented in your playbook for living the abundant life.

This book offers a novel interpretation of politics and identity in Ovid's epic poem of transformations, the Metamorphoses. Reexamining the emphatically fictional character of the poem, Playing Gods argues that Ovid uses the problem of fiction in the text to redefine the power of poetry in Augustan Rome. The book also provides the fullest account yet of how the poem relates to the range of cultural phenomena that defined and projected Augustan authority, including spectacle, theater, and the visual arts. Andrew Feldherr argues that a key to the political as well as literary power of the Metamorphoses is the way it manipulates its readers' awareness that its stories cannot possibly be true. By continually juxtaposing the imaginary and the real, Ovid shows how a poem made up of fictions can and cannot acquire the authority and presence of other discursive forms. One important way that the poem does this is through narratives that create a "double vision" by casting characters as both mythical figures and enduring presences in the physical landscapes of its readers. This narrative device creates the kind of tensions between identification and distance that Augustan Romans would have felt when experiencing imperial spectacle and other contemporary cultural forms. Full of original interpretations, Playing Gods constructs a model for political readings of fiction that will be useful not only to classicists but to literary theorists and cultural historians in other fields.

Cat’s Cradle is Kurt Vonnegut’s satirical commentary on modern man and his madness. An apocalyptic tale of this planet’s ultimate fate, it features a midget as the protagonist, a complete, original theology created by a calypso singer, and a vision of the future that is at once blackly fatalistic and hilariously funny. A book that left an indelible mark on an entire generation of readers, Cat’s Cradle is one of the twentieth century’s most important works—and Vonnegut at his very best.
