Sport and the Christian Religion

Full Product Description

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.

Sport and the Christian Religion by Andrew Parker; Nick J. Watson was published by Cambridge Scholars Publishing in March 2014. The ISBN for Sport and the Christian Religion is 9781443855037.
