Book Review: Youth Sport and Spirituality: Catholic Perspectives

How do you stretch the boundaries of self by playing inside the lines? In Youth Sport and Spirituality: Catholic Perspectives, Patrick Kelly provides an engaging edited text that shifts the paradigms by which we evaluate sport and faith through a carefully designed exploration of our individual beliefs and socially held values. Employing a diverse yet synergetic body of theories, supported by effective evidence-based practice, Kelly’s work provides overwhelming support for the heights of holistic development that can be achieved through sport. When administrators, parents, and youth recognize that the game is about transcending self-imposed boundaries through discipline of staying within the bounds of true competition and the mutual quest for excellence, sport offers tremendous possibilities.
