Overall, "Playing with Purpose" is a great book. The author, Mike Yorkey, makes the book very real, and seems to bring the reader inside the lives of these popular athletes. I would definitely recommend this book to Chistian athletes. In addition to the sports in these young mens' lives, it also shows how involved they are in Christian organizations. It shows how each of these athletes have a personal relationship with Christ. It really helped motivate me in my own relationship with Christ.

I really wanted to like this book. I love football, and I liked the idea about reading about up and coming football stars who had strong beliefs, but I couldn't do it. I stopped reading about 25 pages in because I couldn't stand the writing any more. It reads like it was written by a high-school doing a report on these 3 guys - and it wouldn't have gotten a good grade.

I think the concept for this book was really good but I don't think it was written well. It jumped around a lot and didn't seem to stay on topic too well. I also think it spent way too long on some topics and not enough on others. I would rte this book 3/5 overall because of the solid idea but poor writing.

I like the premise of the book: 3 guys who kept with their faith throughout high school, college, and the NFL. However, it sounds like it was written by a 7th grader. It doesn't sound professional at all. I read it solely for the story behind the athletes.
