Title: Men of Sunday: How Faith Guides the Players, Coaches, and Wives of the NFL
Publisher: Thomas Nelson
Step into the locker rooms and living rooms of NFL players and their families to see how a close relationship with God guides football's biggest stars.
In a behind-the-scenes, off-the-field glimpse into one of America's most beloved sports, Men of Sunday
reveals how Sunday's greatest rely on God to face issues such as drug abuse, family crisis, injuries, and temptations resulting from fame and fortune.
Compiled from dozens of interviews, Men of Sunday marks the intersection of two Sunday traditions: faith and football. Inspired by the league's "systemic shift" toward embracing Christianity, Bloomberg writer Curtis Eichelberger shows how God is a source of comfort when facing the unique challenges of life in the NFL and the everyday challenges of maintaining strong families and building character.
