And God Said, "It's Good!" takes the sport of football and compares this favorite Sunday pastime to the Bible--and it works. Once again, Gary Graf combines his love of sports with the Bible, resulting in an amusing and fun-loving book that delights any sports fan. Comparisons include Hail Mary passes and answered prayers; immaculate receptions and Immaculate Conceptions; football stadiums and cathedrals; biblical verses and double reverses, plus good books and playbooks. These and many more parallels fill this lively and entertaining book. On any Sunday, you can bet some are brought closer to the spirit of the sport while others are more connected to the Bible. The twenty chapters in this book compare football and the Bible--with remarkable results! "Forgiveness and good works were just pre-game drills for the Lord's true purpose here on earth." "God rested on Sunday. Football is mostly played on Sunday. Coincidence? I think not." Any author who can find similarities between the dazzling colors of a football team and the colorful vestments of a priest--needs to have his book read cover to cover. A delightful read for everyone--even if you're not remotely interested in football.

Faith and Baseball have long been important factors in the life of author Gary Graf, each one inspiring valuable lessons on living. "I keep returning to them both," he says. "Each has taught me lessons about love, loss, and life. Each has its own rewards and its version of universal truth. I'm no theologian by any standard, and I never could throw a curve ball with any precision. But I do think there's a symbiotic relationship between that which was heaven sent and the game which is heaven on earth."

In this inspirational and entertaining book, Gary Graf brings his great talent for relating large moral and religious truths in ways that the rest of us can understand. And God Said, Tee It Up! is the third book from Graf that uses sports metaphors to reveal the mystical connections between sports and Spirit, links and Lord, game and God. This book relies on the eighteen holes of a golf course (plus the nineteenth hole back in the clubhouse) as a framework to illuminate comparisons between the ball and the Word, grand slams and Gospels, and Saint Andrew--the course and the man.

In 2008 over six million people attended an SEC football game. They spent thousands on season tickets, donated millions to athletic departments, and for three months a year ordered their entire lives around the schedule of their favorite team. As a Christian, Gibbs knows he cannot serve two masters, but at times his faith is overwhelmed by his fanaticism. He is not alone.Gibbs and his six million friends do not live in a spiritually void land where such borderline idol worship would normally be accepted. They live in the American South, where according to the 2008 American Religious Identification Survey, 84 percent identify themselves as Christians.This apparent contradiction that Gibbs sees in his own life, and in millions of othersÆ, has led him to journey to each of the twelve schools to spend time with rabid Christian fans of various ages and denominations. Through his journey, he learns how others are able to balance their passion for their team with their devotion to God.
