Time Out!: The gift or god of Youth Sports

from 12.99

Sport is one of the many evidences of a gracious God. It can unite people, sharing together in the enjoyment it brings. But it brings the challenge of proper stewardship under God, especially when working with young people. Are they being encouraged to use their gifts and time to God’s glory? Are you ensuring that they are living by God’s Word, rather than prioritising their sport? There is a lot to learn about how God wants us to live through sports – both on and off the field.

John Perritt is the Director of Resources for Reformed Youth Ministries (rym.org) and serves as the host of The Local Youth Worker podcast for RYM. He is the author of Your Days Are Numbered (2016) & What Would Judas Do? (2017). He and his wife, Ashleigh, live in Ridgeland, MS, with their five children.

Every church engaging in sports ministry needs to have this book as a resource for setting clear and gospel–focused guidelines. Perritt has done a considerable service in addressing the key issues in short compass and providing biblical answers.

It is with great heart and sincerity that John Perritt offers this challenge to the idolatry of youth sports.  Wisely navigating both the glory and the depravity of our current cultural moment, he invites us to consider more thoughtful and intentional discipleship relating to their participation.

(Liz Edrington)

Perspective, we are often told, is everything. In this helpful book John Perritt helps Christians, and especially Christian parents, to put sports into perspective―a Christian perspective. This book is a very helpful contribution to a conversation Christians must eagerly engage
