Sports Trivia Devotional - Inspiration for Kids from Sports and Scripture

Full of interesting facts about every sport you can imagine, this book captures your attention from the beginning.  The main stories are varied and will introduce the reader to interesting atheletes from across the globe.  In addition to the standard sports stories, you will read about the disabled golfer, the pro women's bowler, and the one-legged mountain climber just to name a few.  Each day's reading includes Birthdays, "On This Day" section and a "Fun Fact".  Mixed in with all of these cool readings is a weekly quiz so that you can see how much you remember from the readings.  Sadly, though, where is the devotional message within the book?  It is in one small verse on each page.  Easily missed if you are not looking for it.  Occasionally the devotional thought is tied into the reading for the day...maybe making the last sentence of the last paragraph.  Disappointing especially when the back cover of the book indicates that "you'll discover points and principles from the Bible and sports for your own life and competition."  This book is strong in sports information and trivia; weak in Biblical application.

I would not purchase it as a devotional.  However, if I had a child who loved sports trivia I would purchase it for the triva information alone!

Rating:  2 stars
