Full Product Description

  • A book for football fans aged 8-12
  • These true stories of famous footballers who follow God are an inspiring collection
  • The perfect gift for encouraging faith and football
For kids aged 8-12 and football fanatics of all ages comes the latest addition to the Zonderkidz biography series, the David Luiz story.

The Brazilian defender has already had an impressive career - receiving the Portuguese Liga Player of the Year, captaining the Brazilian International Team, and winning the UEFA Champions League & the FA Cup with Chelsea FC - but perhaps his greatest accomplishment is how his faith, not his fame, has been his driving force on and off the pitch.

"Everything in life belongs to God. Our purpose has already been mapped out." - David Luiz's response to questions about his future while he was still playing for Portugal's Benfica FC.

Throughout his career he has kept his faith at the centre. He has prayed for the likes of Fernando Torres on the pitch before matches, worshiped with Brazilian World Cup Team, and been seen driving to training with stickers on his van saying 'Christ is life' and 'God is faith'. So when Chelsea won the most prestigious prize in the sport, the UEFA Champions League Trophy, David Luiz ran around the grounds wearing a t-shirt saying "Deus e fiel" which means "God is faithful".

In 'Defending the Line' David explains his thrilling football career, his Brazilian upbringing, and his unwavering faith to our football-mad youth. Whether you're a Chelsea supporter or not, this kids biography undoubtedly brings faith to the football pitch through the life of a faithful star.

Defending the Line by Anthony Carpenter was published by Zondervan in April 2014 and is our 527th best seller. The ISBN for Defending the Line is 9780310746416.
