Synopsis: The Holy Trinity of American Sports explores how football, baseball, and basketball interact to illustrate civil religion in the United States. Year after year, they generate ritual actions of daily, weekly, yearly, and once-in-a-lifetime significance. Football, baseball, and basketball portray three core stories of the nation worldview. Through stories of life, the three games convey doctrines about the source of truth, where to find knowledge of truths, and how to solve problems. Beyond doctrinal convictions, they disclose ethical beliefs of the nation for the worst, best, and most common situations. Collectively, the sports trinity communicates commitments to certain social arrangements, offering directives for interaction with people outside and inside the country. Football, baseball, and basketball possess great importance in the United States because they provide comprehensive and detailed illustration of American beliefs.

About the Author: CRAIG A. FORNEY holds a MA in Religious Studies and a Ph.D. in American Religious History from the University of Chicago. He teaches courses in American Religions, Comparative Religion, and Religious Ethics at Arizona State University.
