Do you know any man who would like tips for success in life? Would it be even nicer if it was written from a Christian perspective?

In Game Plan for Life by Joe Gibbs, he has written a book for men outlining the guiding principles he has used thoughout his life. With a team of experts, he has uncovered the 11 most important issues facing men today and addresses them in this book including "Who is God?," "Finances," "Relationships and Sex," "Overcoming Sin and Addiction," and more.

This just might be the revival you're looking for, or the answer to emptiness in your life. Yes, this book is geared towards men, and it's about sports, but this book can really be for everyone, and you don't have to know a thing about football to understand it. Joe Gibbs authors this book, with the help of several others who each author a specific topic of expertise, from finance to health to heaven and much more. Some may say that this is just another religious book, but it's not. It's 100 tim ...more

Great book and a must read for every believer. The connection the book has to the website with updates to the chapters is excellent. The staff that Coach Gibbs has put together to write the chapters is second to none. I also highly recommend the small group bible study by the same name.

This is an excellent book to use to introduce someone to Christian doctrines pertaining to the Bible and God. However, to someone who has been "churched" it can get a little slow.
excellant and relevant for thos interested in Christianity and the bible in today's world.
I enjoyed some of the chapters in this book. I actually copied the one on the Bible because it had myths vs. facts (concise charts for prophecies fulfilled and ancient manuscript copies). Josh McDowell wrote that one and of course is always good. I have trouble reading sports figures' writing because they tend to repeat themselves and I find myself skimming along. That must be necessary in coaching - repeat, repeat, repeat. This is a positive, uplifting book.
This book's intended audience is men. However, I have to say, as a woman no less, that this is one of the best books I have ever read. It is easy to read and so well-thought out. It truly is a playbook for success. I plan to buy a copy of this book (after reading a library copy)to keep to reread. Man or woman, this is one book that everyone will enjoy reading.
Don Hobbs
I liked it. I enjoy reading about individuals who are very competitive and struggle to figure out how to combine that with a deep abiding faith in God. Joe Gibbs does an excellent job in expressing that in this book. I like how he recruited "experts" for this book to write about areas that men struggle in.
Ken Horne
I enjoyed this read. I found the chapter on heaven particularly helpful for me. To be reminded of the HOPE that we have for the future can definitely help bring us through this life's challenges and multiply our joy during the good times. I also enjoyed the chapters on finances and vocation.
Coach Gibbs has some great people in this book who can help you with just about everything from money to how to be a great leader. I have bought some of the books that the people in this book talk about. A chapter just gets you started, coach Gibbs and his team of writers are great.

Life lived on principles of The Bible. Very straight forward.

Recommends it for: Dad
This is a book for me, but I love this book so much that I bought one for my Dad. I feel like I learned more about how to love men in a Godly way because I have some insight to their life. It's an easy read with a straight forward message.
This was my first "borrowed" Kindle book. While it was geared toward men, I found Coach Gibbs' collection of various personalities to tackle various aspects of the Christian life made for a good inspirational read.
I thought this shared a fascinating perspective of a man I only knew from the news and sportscasters. A little too preachy for me, but good, solid advice for living and letting go of the outcome.
Joe Wisniewski
Not bad. General rehash of spiritual self help books applied to everyday situations. Different perspective though coming from a generally successful football coach.
David Beck
Very good, Gibbs has Christian experts answer questions that men have based on polling data. Some brilliant minds in this group and it is still very understandable.
James Kim
I've always had a great deal of respect for Coach Gibbs. I enjoyed the collection of the leaders who put together for this book.
Great book by Coach Gibbs. Making the case for JC! I enjoyed some of the back stories about his old coaching days..
Jimmy Henson
Great book if you need direction in your life. Read and apply to your life and positive things will start to appear.
Patrick Breck
Mostly surface level stuff, but a pretty good analogy of God being our head coach in life.
Susan Criddle
Good reading....both men and women will like this and use this book - liked the format he used.
I am not sure if I will finish this book. It is okay. I expected a little more to be honest.

has a great outlook on life & personal success
Had some good points that make you think a little bit about your faith and your life.
Author calls upon other Christians to write the chapters while intertwining his story.
Don Paske
Good, simple game plan. Good advice from Joe and "his guys".
Excellent idea in putting together the respected writers!
A fantastic book that every man should read.

“Lessons are built into life. Love and truth must go hand in hand. Love and deceit are contradictory. There is no such thing as love without cost. God’s love to us came at the price of the death of His Son, and we can’t appreciate that forgiveness and receive that love while substituting our own will for the plan He has for our lives.” 0 likes
