US Retreat – A Brief Theology of Sport
About the Contributor(s): Lincoln Harvey is Lecturer in Systematic Theology at St Mellitus College, London.
Sport is extremely popular. This groundbreaking book explains why. It shows that sport has everything to do with our deepest identity. It is where we resonate with the most basic nature of reality. A Brief Theology of Sport sweeps across the fields of church history, philosophy, and Christian doctrine to draw readers into a creative vision of sport. The book begins by examining how the church has historically approached sport before turning to consider sport on the basis of the divine act of creation. In doing so, Harvey is able to distinguish sport from all other human activities by identifying it as a set-aside sphere in which the unnecessary-but-meaningful nature of life is celebrated. Harvey's constructive proposal sheds light on a wide range of issues, inc eluding the role of competition, professionalisation, and celebrity culture in sport today. As such, A Brief Theology of Sport makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the value of sport to human life.
Questions to Consider: Where Faith & Fitness Meet. The Spirit of Sport. Freedom and Fitness.
Reducing Loneliness. Solitude. Stillness. Serenity. Being Alone. Seasons of Change
