With his keen power of analogy, Bryce Johnson draws you into the Word in a way that will not let you go. Sports, family, faith and their intersections are all here, and all for you. Thirty days very well spent.

This is a great resource to work with sports minded students/friends as they embark on a relationship with Jesus. Bryce does an amazing job connecting sports and faith. It was a refreshing take for my own walk with the Lord!

What are the connections between March Madness, Super Bowls, NBA Championships, MLS Championships, World Series games, Masters Golf Championships and following Jesus? What can be learned from the likes of Nick Saban, Aaron Rodgers, Tim Tebow, Bill Russell, Tony Bennett, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Matt Stafford, Ray Lewis, Kobe Bryant, and Michael Vick?

Bryce Johnson makes it simple and inspiring as he connects sports personalities and happenings to following Jesus. If you are a sports fan and follow Jesus or just someone who is checking out the connection of faith to sports and life, The Sports Devotional by Bryce Johnson will motivate and inspire you with the great things of life! And Bryce is the real deal. I get the honor and pleasure of being his family’s pastor. They live what they believe.

Bryce's ability to take our love and passion for sports and point it toward God’s love for us is a true blessing. His writings have challenged me to understand my Christian faith better and helped me grow. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking to learn more about Christ’s love or grow in their relationship with Him.

Bryce Johnson possesses a keen ability to glean gospel-saturated wisdom from the intersection of two significant interests in his life: being a sports fan and pursuing biblical knowledge. These 30 devos are almost proverbial in that they're easy to read but challenging to live, and his questions at the end of each section are worth meditating on throughout the day. Great to read alone or to discuss with your sport-loving friends or kids, Bryce effectively uses sports stories to remind us that the gospel can be experienced in every corner of our lives—even in our fandom.
