"Game Day for the Glory of God" & "Great Moments in Sports History" Contest

Stephen Altrogge's soon-to-be-released book, Game Day for the Glory of God: A Guide for Athletes, Fans, and Wannabes, is a definite must-read for sports fans. Here are a few excerpts from some blurbs:
“A new, eye-opening look into sports and the gifts from God that sports really are.”
--Steve Bosdosh, PGA golf instructor; contributor, Golf Magazine and Sports Illustrated

“A wonderful and refreshing take on sports that brings God to the position where he should be: Head Coach, Manager, Commissioner! This book is a blessing for anyone who has or needs perspective.”
--David Stein, talk radio host, A Celebration of Life through Sports

“Brings a gospel-centered voice to one of America’s biggest idols. A practical guide to many aspects of ministry.”
--Gary Shavey, pastor, Mars Hill Church; chaplain for the Seattle Mariners

“This book will help parents, coaches, and young athletes form a biblical perspective on the games they play.”
--Ted Kluck, contributor

“A biblical and insightful playbook for anyone who loves to play or watch sports.”
--C. J. Mahaney, Sovereign Grace Ministries
At his blog Altrogge is sponsoring a “Greatest Moments in Sports History” contest.
Here’s how it works:
  • You, the avid blog reader and passionate sports fan select your favorite sports moment of all time and find a clip of that moment on YouTube.
  • You then email me the URL of the YouTube clip. Please place the words “Greatest Sports Moment” in the subject line. Entries must be received by Friday, August 22nd, and only one entry per person please.
  • I will then sift through the many magical moments that I receive and select what I believe are the ten greatest sports moments of all time. These clips will be gathered together into one glorious sports extravaganza and posted to this blog on Monday, August 25th.
  • If I select your video you will receive a free copy of my book when it’s released on September 30th.
That’s all there is to it! You can email me by clicking here.
