Sports. Comedy. Jesus.
Ever wonder what Martin Luther would write about if he loved to watch LeBron shot-block layups into the twelfth row? Or if Karl Barth watched four hours of SportsCenter a day? Wonder no more, friend. 'Posterized' has you covered. No Tebowing required.
This essay collection explores the unexpected intersections between the sports world and following Jesus, using the absolute maximum of sketches about the Founding Fathers debating the invention of wakeboarding. It answers long- debated theological questions, like:
1) what tae kwon do has to do with the Kingdom of God,
2) How Chris Jackson can teach us about prayer,
3) Why the Swear Cam helps us understand the cross, and
4) what would possess an otherwise normal 25 year old to try out for a pro soccer team with no prior experience.
