    Review quote
    With the pre-game prayer, Christianity and football aren''t complete strangers to one another. Playing with Purpose looks at three new figures in the National Football League, hailed as both good Christians and good role models. An analysis of how faith will stack up on the field, Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, and Tim Tebow are discussed as both players and people, and provides an intriguing debate for Christian NFL fans. Playing with Purpose is a strong pick for any analytical football collection and for Christian studies collections.--The Bookwatch"Midwest Book Review" (09/01/2010)
    Back cover copy
    They'll Be Playing with Purpose in the NFL Sam Bradford.Colt McCoy.Tim Tebow. Sportswriters call them the "Holy Trinity," and football pundits predict we'll be talking about this trio of quarterbacks for years to come. Since the start of their storied college careers, they've been hailed as team leaders and promoted as role models. They've been praised for their leadership abilities, core values, and strength of character. They've played in BCS national championship games for their teams, and Sam and Tim have won Heisman Trophies for their outstanding play.Now the Three QBs are taking to their games to the NFL. In coming years, they'll be the subject of scrutiny, the topic of sports talk shows, and closely watched on the field. Will Sam Bradford turn around the St. Louis Rams franchise? Will Colt McCoy get a chance to lead the Cleveland Browns back into the playoffs? Will Tim Tebow show the football world that he has what it takes to play quarterback in the NFL with the Denver Broncos?Even though Sam, Colt, and Tim each took a different route to the top, they all share an inner confidence born of a conviction that God has a plan for their lives. If you're wondering how Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, and Tim Tebow got to where they are today--and what makes them tick--you'll want to read "Playing with Purpose." I'm really looking forward to the arrival of Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, and Tim Tebow into the National Football League. This is going to be fun."Trent Dilfer, former NFL quarterback and NFL commentator on ESPN" I admire each of the Three QBs, but Tim Tebow's vocal stand for sexual purity is easily more heroic than anything he's done on the playing field. As my son heads off to his own Division 1 football career this fall, I'm grateful that Tim is a bright lighthouse guiding all the young men tossing about on America's sexually stormy seas.Fred StoekerAuthor, "Every Young Man's Battle" and "Hero"
