In Champions through Christ, faith and football converge!
The University of Alabama’s legendary football coach, Paul “Bear” Bryant, had a knack for drawing out that innate desire to be a champion and instilling a will to win that refused to be denied. Armed with a rock-solid game plan, Bryant’s Crimson Tide teams won 13 Southeastern Conference championships and six national championships.
In Champions through Christ, Bart Cannon weaves Bryant’s football formula of “inspiration, preparation, and perspiration” together with biblical principles to form a game plan for winning the game of life. Stirring football stories, such as the Crimson Tide’s shocking victory over the Miami Hurricanes in the 1993 Sugar Bowl, suggest that great struggles can produce even greater victories—in football and in life.
“Bart Cannon shows us what is most vital to be a real champion for Christ in today’s game of life. There is wisdom in this book that draws us to examine what we think success or richness really might be.”

Bart Cannon has taken highlights of the sacred tradition of Alabama football and translated them into a book of spiritual applications and a devotional keepsake. I highly recommend this remarkable read to any football fan or sports enthusiast. It is wonderfully written, entertaining, encouraging and inspiring. Celebrate faith and football in Champions through Christ. It scores one touchdown after another.”
