Does God care who wins?
If you say, "No," why no? Are our games not important enough in light of other world issues? This is the common reason given. It trivializes sports and leaves us wondering what else isn't important enough in our lives to garner God's concern.
If you say "yes," why yes? Does God favor a particular team over another and if so, why? This answer tends to trivialize God and leaves us encouraging different values than those God declares matter to him in the gospel.
Does God Care Who Wins? challenges each of these common answers and discuss their implications while encouraging more dialogue on the question. In it, Bob Schindler explores what he sees as the answer that not only honors God but also brings meaning and passion to sports.
It is an answer that has been in development for over 30 years. It began with Bob's journey into professional golf and came to a head in the midst of his first PGA Tour School where he was trying to qualify to play on the PGA Tour. It has been formed along the way by discussions with athletes, coaches, and parents who wrestle with the question.
While Does God Care Who Wins? is more about God than sports, it is not a theoretical approach to the question. Rather, the book comes from a very practical perspective -- one that honestly addresses athletes, coaches, and parents and the real questions we all ask around this question.
