My friend, Chad Gibbs, has a new book that releases today.  I read his first book, God and Football, several months ago.  I’ve been excited about this new book, Love Thy Rivals, ever since.  I can’t wait to get my copy soon.

Comments, emails, Facebook messages. Friday’s post struck a chord. What makes our story enticing to others? What draws people to us? What are the building blocks of our identity?

It may not be the It cause of the moment, but it hasn’t gone away and it’s not go»

If you haven’t heard, then listen: my good friend Chad Gibbs has come out with his second book and it’s fantastic because it talks about sports and God and does so intelligently. That’s just the book part though. Perhaps the coolest part though is that Chad has partnered with Samaritan’s Purse in a fundraising drive to raise money ($40,000) for a medical clinic in Haiti. While the book is all about  the notion of fanaticism in sports and»
