A Brief Theology of Sport
by Lincoln Harvey
Publisher:SCM imprint of Hymns Ancient & Modern Ltd
In the book, A Brief Theology of Sport, Harvey has bravely taken on an ever-growing, yet largely untapped field of ministry.
Harvey litters the book with well researched insightful aspects of how ministry can work. He backs up his own viewpoint with valid theological points.
At its heart this book is an academic study bridging the gap into the more practical world of delivery of sport itself. It struggles to shrug off it's academic approach to discussions, but doesn't pretend it needs to.
If you want depth of information covering both historical development as well as modern day application of sport from a Christian aspect then this book is worth a read.
At the same time its strength is its weakness. It approaches the subject from an academic angle, which doesn't always compliment the practical aspects of Christianity and sport in today's world.
