Research conducted thus far suggests that the more successful and serious the athletes, the more likely they are to be spiritual.
Do you ever wonder why athletes always seem to thank God, first and foremost, in post-game interviews?
Or why they point to the heavens following a home run or a touchdown?
This book takes a look at the relationship between top athletes and religiosity (or spirituality) in a number of different ways.
It aims to address the issues of when sport and religion began to merge, whether professional athletes are, in fact, more religious than the rest of the population, how a spiritual mindset might (or might not) benefit athletes.
The results might surprise you.
