Are “entitled athletes” the problem in big-time sports?

My hope for Touchdowns for Jesus and Other Signs of Apocalypse was that it would elicit deeper conversations about the most pressing issues in big-time sports, which mirror the most pressing issues in our country.

Many of those conversations are happening and I am thankful for each one. iStock football qb and cloud

I wanted to share one here in particular. A review of Touchdowns for Jesus appears in the online journal of Christian social justice, Unbound. The author of the review, Rachel Mastin, raised on important concern about me not including attention to “entitled athletes.” And Unbound invited me to respond. I hope you will read the review and my response here. And, as always, I’d love to hear your thoughts, too.

  1. As the editor of Unbound, the journal in which both Rachel Mastin’s review and Marcia Mount Shoop’s response were published, I’m really excited to hear this conversation continued! 🙂

    I encourage all who would like to to share your comments in the Unbound comments section as well, so our readers can hear what you have to say! All you need to register and comment is an email address (which will not be shared) and a user-name (which will be connected with your comment).

    Thank you to both Marcia and Rachel for asking important questions that people like myself don’t always think to ask!

    Thank you, Ginna, for commenting here and for directing people to the Unbound website. I will be sure to encourage people in that direction, too, when they comment here or on FaceBook or Twitter as well. Thanks again for the conversation.
    Peace,
    Marcia
