Spirituality of Sport

This book looks interesting.. has anyone read?

I am becoming more and more interested in weaving our faith into the exercise of our bodies. There is so much negative out there in terms of weight loss and exercise.. trying to achieve that Perfect 10 and all the pressure that goes with it.

God gave us these beautiful bodies to take care of, created in his image. I wonder if this book addresses that? And marrying spirituality with fitness...?

I think the books sounds inteesting - I know my faith and my fitness are intertwined....And BB incorpoates the two in his fitness words and workouts....

Our bodies are the temple of the Holy Spirit so it's only right that we take care...

John Paul II modeled this so wonderfully, don't you think?

The 2nd anniversary of his passing is coming on April 2 - I can't believe it!

I think there is a book out on there on JPII and sports. I saw it last time I was at a Catholic bookstore.

Ha! I have that book on my shelf, but I haven't read it. I think I'll move it to my pile.
