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.
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.
