"'Hut one, hut two, hike!' In this Bible study, Athletes in the Bible, be prepared to have Amanda Bennett throw you a touchdown. Amanda was able to connect my family’s love of sports with real life stories from the Bible. We were amazed to learn how fast Elijah could sprint and the colossal strength of Samson. We were reeled in with Peter as he went fishing and cheered along with all of Isreal as the underdog, David, took on the champion, Goliath of Gath.
This study took the time to show my family the importance of harnessing our God-given physical abilities to bring Him glory. There were no missed goals or “air balls” in this study, it was a slam dunk.
Most importantly, your young athletes will learn the importance of letting Jesus be their coach. Athletes in the Bible is a great in-depth biblical study that moves with the speed of an Olympian while keeping your children engaged and asking for more. The book list at the beginning was a helpful resource to get us running down the right track, and as always, the links were a home run with me and my older children. Amanda Bennett has created an MVP Bible study that will surely make it into your Hall of Fame!"

"Podcasts . . . Apps . . . Clickable Links . . . My teenage boy loves this sports-minded Bible study!
Good role models can be hard to come by on ESPN these days. If your boys love sports as much as mine do, why not point them to the Athletes in the Bible? Amanda introduces them to David, Elijah, Samson, Peter, Paul, & Jesus from a physical standpoint. I love how she has them digging into Scripture to examine the physical demands that were placed on these men in their time. From there, she moves them from the concrete to the personal application of Godly character traits. The book list will encourage your young athlete with lots of titles that highlight professional athletes and coaches of our time with a strong faith. This Bible study will keep them coming back for more!"

“Athletes in the Bible is fascinating! This study is full of amazing links and information. I like how this Athletes in the Bible lets me really explore the information, and doesn’t just make me sit and read it. The Internet links, apps and games make it seem like something fun to do, rather than school. The interactive notes are very cool–you can type answers instead of having to write them. Learning about these Bible heroes as athletes is a new perspective, it made me think of them in a new way. Thanks for making a Bible study that incorporates Bible heroes and sports! I can’t wait to finish this study!”
