Product description

Review

Football, fame, fast living, and faith? Surely they can t go together? The modern day footballer appears to have everything, but beneath the glamorous surface are people just like you and me with their hopes, fears and frailties. To hear them talking openly and honestly about their faith is not just fascinating, but a massive encouragement. --Simon Thomas, Sky Sports

I am truly grateful for the revealing insights in this book from those who have not just played football well but kept the faith while doing so. --J. John, Philo Trust

A rare, interesting and encouraging look at how some well-known football players live out their faith on and off the pitch. A great read for football fans like me --Mike Pilavachi, Soul Survivor

Book Description

Twenty football stars talk about God and the difference their faith makes to them, both on and off the pitch

This book is a must read for anyone who has an interest in football or faith. I found it encouraging and it was very interesting to see what life is like for a Christian footballer. It covers a broad range of footballers from different countries and in different stages of their careers. Their stories show that a person can have all the fame and money in the world and find they are still missing something. My particular favorites were Sammy Ameobi and Leandro Castan. Also, if you are not a big reader this book is for you because it is short and well written so it could kick start your reading habit.

Format: Paperback
Absolutely dire reading from the start. Facts & interviews with the players are not correct and have been taken way out of context showing a clear lack of research along the way. I am not religious but have nothing against those who are - but the angle the author takes makes for unpleasant reading at times. I made it 81 pages in - don't make the same mistake !!!

An incredible read and fascinating interviews with some big players in the game. A great insight into how faith plays a vital part in so many professional footballers lives. A great way to communicate the gospel to football fans across the world and to understand a bit more about what being a Christian means in a sporting enviornment. Worth every penny and will read it several times more!

A fascinating read.
Bite-size interviews that provide insight into the lives of some of the most influential christian footballers of our time. You can nip in at any point.
Cross the line is doing excellent work bringing to the fore the lives and christian faith of footballers for football fans and casual observers alike.

Perfect book for sports and football enthusiast especially boys and men who traditionally don't read! This is an inspirational book that can be picked up at any time and read in small portions if necessary but gives a remarkable insight into the world of how top level footballers seek to live out their Christian faith.
