Playing With God
Religion and Modern SportBook - 2007
The spectacle of American modern sport displays all the commercial and technological innovations, yet age-old religious concerns still thrive at the stadium. This text traces this dynamic relationship from the Puritan condemnation of games as sinful in the 17th century to the near deification of athletic contests.
