McCartney founded Promise Keepers, the men's Christian renewal movement, in 1990 while coaching the University of Colorado's football team to a national championship. This confessional memoir traces his torturous road to these triumphs. Sixteen-hour days six to seven days per week led to coaching and religious successes but left no time for family. By 1993, his long-suffering wife, Lyndi, had fallen into a deep depression, losing 80 pounds due to bulimia. When McCartney finally realized he was ignoring a Promise Keepers promise?to "[b]uild strong marriages and families"?he resigned from one of the most lucrative contracts in college sports. Lyndi contributes her perspectives on their much-improved marriage. McCartney's integrity and profound religious faith shine through. He has a graceful writing style, though the confessions become repetitious, and he makes a strong case that the Promise Keepers' movement is too complex to be summarized by glib cliches, pro or con.?Richard S.
