Head Start in the Christian Olympics
AuthorHouse, 2003 - 248 páginas
This is a book for all Christians of all walks of life. It is also a challenge to the unsaved. The author has never discovered a published book on the entire subject of the Christian Olympics.
The author's information is gathered from our "Assembly Brethren" who over forty-one years taught us to take notes and to develop the subject matter for ourselves. It fulfills the solemn need that we should earnestly contend for the faith, which was once for all delivered unto the saints and simultaneously building up ourselves on the most holy faith.
The approach taken is from the image of the Olympian, Pythian, Nemean and Ishmian games introduced from the time of the Graeco- Macedonian Empire. Palestine was also introduced to the national games of the Greeks. The Romans carried on many of the Greek athletic customs, but came to give special prominence to their gladiatorial shows. We too, by way of comparison, are competitors in the Christian arena, striving for the mastery. We have then taken up this current challenge in our world of sports and have woven it within a scriptural framework to arouse and awaken Christians to rethink their mission and " Call to Action."
