Welcome to a Christian sports blog for life on and off the court. David Robinson, Athletic Director, player, and coach, also writes the Sports Zone column in Guide.
Read David's bio here!
His Instagram handle is "fadinglory." The story behind the name is that all glory is fleeting and while it's fun to accomplish great things in sports, ultimately, those moments and memories will fade. That's why you have to do everything with God at the forefront. Only then will your time and efforts not be in vain. You can see his feed here.
Do you have questions about how sports and Christianity are connected? Ask away in the Guide discussion board.
I always throught it was pretty cool that Jacob wrestled with an angel because it's one of the few times that sports are mentioned in the Bible. The above picture dates that this was a manual for wrestling that dates way back to 200 AD. In fact, this is considered to be the oldest sports manual in the world! Kerry McCoy is the two-time olympian responsible for finding this.
Boring? Absolutely, but I think this is for the scavengers and history buffs. Can anyone tell me what language this is written in?
