Men of Sunday ~ Curtis Eichelberger

This book is all about the NFL players, coaches, team owners and families.  It tells of what we all wonder about, what goes on behind the scenes, in the locker rooms on Sunday morning and afternoon when most of us are at church, going to lunch with families then go home and watch the games.  It speaks of how some teams have their own pastors to minister to the players, employees and families.  It tells of how different people go through difficult situation because of their religious beliefs and what society doesn't agree with.  It was interesting to know that Christian's that are involved in the NFL can still have Sunday worship in the morning and then play the game in the afternoon.  Most of us believe that the NFL is all about tailgating, beer drinking and playing football, but in this book it gives a different look at the players that choose to, do have a relationship with GOD.  Read this book to know what the media doesn't show us.

I did find this book interesting but it was hard to keep my interest through some parts of the book.  I would recommend this to any football fan, as I believe it will hold their interest more then mine.  I am not an avid fan, but my husband is and I know he would enjoy this book, it would be a great gift to give to your football fan.
