Download and read online Playing for God in PDF and EPUB When sports ministry first emerged in the 1950s and 1960s, its founders imagined male celebrity athletes as powerful salespeople who could deliver a message of Christian strength: “If athletes can endorse shaving cream, razor blades, and cigarettes, surely they can endorse the Lord, too,” reasoned Fellowship of Christian Athletes founder Don McClanen. But combining evangelicalism and sport did much more than serve as an advertisement for religion: it gave athletes the opportunity to think about the embodied experiences of sport as a way to experience intimate connection with the divine. As sports ministry developed, it focused on individual religious experiences and downplayed celebrity sales power, opening the door for female Christian athletes to join and eventually dominate sports ministry. Today, women are the majority of participants in sports ministry in the United States. In Playing for God, Annie Blazer offers an exploration of the history and religious lives of Christian athletes, showing that evangelical engagement with popular culture can carry unintended consequences. When sport became an avenue for embodied worship, it forced a reckoning with evangelical teachings about the body. Female Christian athletes increasingly turned to their own bodies to understand their religious identity, and in so doing, came to question evangelical mainstays on gender and sexuality. What was once a male-dominated masculinist project of sports engagement became a female-dominated movement that challenged evangelical ideas on femininity, marriage hierarchy, and the sinfulness of homosexuality. Though evangelicalism has not changed sporting culture, for those involved in sports ministry, sport has changed evangelicalism.

Download and read online Sport and the Christian Religion in PDF and EPUB This book provides a systematic and interdisciplinary analysis of the published literature and practical initiatives on the sports-Christianity interface from both Protestant and Catholic perspectives. Within the context of this relatively new and rapidly expanding area of inquiry, this text offers an original contribution to the current literature for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and serves as a point of reference for academics from a wide range of related fields including theology and religious studies, psychology, history, sociology, philosophy, psychology, health-religion studies, and sports studies. The book will also be of interest to sports chaplains, those involved in sports ministry organizations, physical educators and sports coaches who wish to adopt a more critical and ‘holistic’ approach to their work. As modern-day sports are often entwined with commercial and political agendas, the book also provides an important response to the ‘win-at-all-costs’ and business orientated philosophy, which characterises much of contemporary sport practice, yet which cannot always be fully understood through secular inquiry.

Download and read online The Competitive Mind in PDF and EPUB Do you have questions about competition? Is anything wrong in having a competitive mind? Why is competition, like competitive sports, so controversial? Is competition only about success or failure? What's the difference between being competitive and engaging in competition? If you'd like to explore answers, this book is for you. Competition is something we take for granted like the ground we walk on, the air we breathe and the food we eat. While ground, air and food are essential, can the same be said of competition? Can we trust that competition's advocates know its pros and cons? Since competition touches everything, isn't it an acceptable part of life? Maybe it's time to challenge these assumptions. Would you be surprised to learn that competition is a common Bible topic? Incidents of competition are generously scattered throughout the Bible. If you desire a sound, authentic perspective on competition, one that zeroes in on its origin, nature, and effects, this book is your guide!

Download and read online Sports and Christianity in PDF and EPUB This interdisciplinary text examines the sports-Christianity interface from Protestant and Catholic perspectives. In addition to a "systematic review of literature," field-pioneering contributors such as Michael Novak, Shirl Hoffman, Joseph Price and Robert Higgs address a wide range of topics from the sporting world, including biblical athletic metaphors, disability, evangelism, professionalism and celebrity, humility and pride, genetic enhancement technologies, stereotypes, sport as art and British and American historical analyses of sport and Christianity. Insightful chapters from Scott Kretchmar, one of the world's leading philosophers of sport, and Father Kevin Lixey, the head of the Vatican's 'Church and Sport' office (2004-), add further depth and breadth to this book, making it accessible and interesting to academic and practitioner audiences alike. Within the context of this relatively new and rapidly expanding area of inquiry, this collection provides a unique and important addition to the current literature for both undergraduate and postgraduate students, and serves as a point of reference for scholars of theology and religious studies, psychology, health studies, ethics and sports studies. The book may also be of interest to physical educators and sports coaches who wish to adopt a more "holistic" and ethical approach to their work. As modern sport is often intertwined with commercial and political agendas, this book offers an important corrective to the "win-at-all-costs" culture of modern sport, which cannot be fully understood through secular ethical inquiry.

Ein altes Haus, eine ungesühnte Schuld und die Brüste von Tante Sonja – Louise Erdrich, liebevolle Chronistin der amerikanischen Ureinwohner, führt uns nach North Dakota. Im Zentrum ihres gefeierten Romans steht der 14jährige Joe, der ein brutales Verbrechen an seiner Mutter rächt und dabei zum Mann wird. Im Sommer 1988 wird die Mutter des 14-jährigen Joe Coutts Opfer eines brutalen Verbrechens. Sie schließt sich in ihrem Zimmer ein und verweigert die Aussage. Vater und Sohn wissen nicht, wie sie sie zurück ins Leben holen können. Da sich der Überfall auf der Nahtstelle dreier Territorien ereignet hat, sind drei Behörden mit den Ermittlungen befasst. Selbst Joes Vater sind als Stammesrichter die Hände gebunden. So beschließt Joe, den Gewalttäter selbst zu finden. Mit seinen Freunden Cappy, Angus und Zack unternimmt er teils halsbrecherische, teils urkomische Ermittlungsversuche. Bei seiner aufreizenden Tante und im Kreis katholischer Pfadfinderinnen begegnet er der Liebe – und in alten Akten dem Schlüssel des Verbrechens.
