9781472414038: Sports Chaplaincy: Trends, Issues and Debates

This ground-breaking book provides an in-depth analysis of the theory and practice of sports chaplaincy in a global context. Written in an accessible style, yet based on academic evidence and theory, the contributors include those leading major national chaplaincy organisations located in the UK, US, Australia and Continental Europe, as well as chaplains and sport psychologists working in elite and amateur sport and those involved in teaching pastoral theology. Providing a rich and informative source of knowledge and inspiration for practitioners, athletes, academics and those interested in the general relationship between sport and faith, contributors also address the provision of sports chaplaincy at sporting mega-events, including the Olympic Games. This much needed overview of chaplaincy provision in sport across a range of national and international contexts and settings, including both catholic and protestant perspectives, is the first collection of its kind to bring together leading scholars in sports chaplaincy with a view to providing professional accreditation and training amidst the fast-emerging field of sports theology.

Review:

'This book is a much needed contribution towards the development of scholarly thought in the under-researched area of sports chaplaincy. Addressing wide-ranging topics including anecdotal and historical narratives of sports chaplaincy, Christian theological reflection on the role of the sports chaplain, and analyses of the relationship between sports chaplains and psychologists, this interdisciplinary collection will be sure to generate responses from diverse voices and open up scholarly discussion about the increasingly provocative field of sports chaplaincy.' Tracy J. Trothen, Queen's University, Canada 'Written by those at the front lines of sports ministry, this is a must read, not only for those engaged in sports ministry but also for anyone studying the evolving relationship between sport and religion in the modern age.' Shirl James Hoffman, University of North Carolina at Greensboro, USA 'When theology rightly meets praxis, a fruitful result is a book like this. Because the sport-Christianity relationship is tricky, what we do not need is another book that unwittingly gorges on sports culture like a glutton. Discernment about how matters of faith relate to and in the contested world of sports is a prerequisite. This book critically and constructively provides a way forward for how sports chaplains and others might meaningfully interpret and inhabit sports and pastorally care for sportspersons. The blend of academician with practitioner coupled with specific geographical and cultural contexts allow for different perspectives. I look forward to seeing others' responses especially from my former world of professional sports.' Joe Ehrmann, founder of 'Coach for America' and co-founder of 'Shift Why'
