Cross the Line
The book offers a range of information and insights into strictly football matters, while also exploring the way these players have ‘crossed the line’ into a relationship with Jesus, and showing how God is actively at work in professional football today.
Football, fame, fast living, and faith? Surely they can’t go together? The modern day footballer appears to have everything, but beneath the glamorous surface are people just like you and me with their hopes, fears and frailties. To hear them talking openly and honestly about their faith is not just fascinating, but a massive encouragement.
I am truly grateful for the revealing insights in this book from those who have not just played football well but kept the faith while doing so.
A rare, interesting and encouraging look at how some well-known football players live out their faith on and off the pitch. A great read for football fans like me!
Refreshing to discover through this book that football, fame and faith can come together. This is a most interesting and encouraging book which will prove a good read for football and non-football fans alike.
[It] offers something genuinely new and exciting that is both interesting and spiritually nourishing.
