Every One A Winner
Full Product Description
Every One A Winner is a collection of true stories about sportsmen and women past and present, including cricketer Henry Olonga, sports presenter Dan Walker, rugby legend Jason Robinson, and runner Eric Liddell. But although the contributors, famous and not so well known, are and have been involved in sports as diverse as pool, American football, fencing, tennis, and hockey, each one has found something that means more to them than sport... a meaning and a purpose that goes beyond the track and the field.
An engaging, very real and ultimately challenging read for anyone interested in sport and the people who play it.
Jonathan Carswell is a Youth Pastor turned Writer who has authored four books. He has been involved in writing and journalism for 15 years and in sport for his whole life.
Every One A Winner by Jonathan Carswell with Emma Newrick was published by Authentic in July 2012 and is our 12483rd best seller. The ISBN for Every One A Winner is 9781850787808.

Every One a WinnerMelanie Carroll, via The Good Book Stall
This is a book of 18 short stories (19 if we include the Jonathan Carswell's own testimony in the preface) of sports people whose lives have been given over to God, and who at some point in their lives and sporting careers came to really know Jesus and allow him to make the difference in their lives. These aren't long biographies, indeed they are mostly just the right size to be used in any class room assembly or teaching session, and for the most part that is the feel they have to them; class room readers that will engage with the 13+ age range. Given the focus on sport due to the Olympics this is an incredibly handy guide to have especially as more than one Olympians story is told in here. There are also a number of stories from people that won't play professional or competitive sport on Sundays, including both footballers and rugby players. In this way they are great object lessons too.
It's an easy to read book with a wide range of different sporting activities being represented, it even includes a pool players testimony amongst it's stories, so there's something for everyone in here, even those not into athletic sports.

What is the lowest age this would be suitable for, and are there any footballers' stories in it please?
This book is aimed at young teenagers upwards. There are no 'famous' footballers featured, but Dan Walker (from BBC's Football Focus) contributes a chapter.
