This book was a bit hard to get through because I am not really into football, I only got the book because I was interested to see how faith plays a part in football. It took me about 2 days to read this book and I liked a few things about it.
I like the quote on page 2 "Prayer is not a rabbit's foot or superstition. We are talking to a GOD who cares of every facet of our lives. If it is important to them, it is important to GOD." I like this because GOD is our friend and we can pray to him at any time, he is never busy and as long as we ask for something in his will or in his son's name Jesus he will answer it for us. He is a loving GOD. It also mentions in the next couple paragraphs about how the football players speak to GOD striaght from their heart, and that's what GOD wants, not some prayer you recited, saying it over and over again. He wants us to be honest and pray about something real.
I also like what a football coach said on page 12, " They decided to focus on Paul's letter to the Philippians, which we wrote during his imprisonment in Rome, encouraging Christians to be united in one another and to think of themselves not as individuals, but as being united in the body of Christ and belonging to each other."
I like the quote on page 28 as well which says, " When I go to bed at night, did I comprise today? Did I cheat anybody? Did I lie? Did I manipulate? It's like David said, "Lord, search my heart and see if there is anything hidden in me, expose it, because I want to be right with you." That was said by football player Singletary. I like that quote because we have to be honest with ourselves and with GOD to be his friend and we really have to do some soul searching to be honset.
The rest of the book was just ok and I didn't really see anything that stood out to be mentioned in my review. Overall it was a good book and distracted me from my life and I will be probably keep it for later on when I want to re-read it at some point.
