The Long History of Famous American Athletes Going Public with their Faith

I wrote this piece for Christianity Today with Art Remillard. Art is a professor of religious studies at St. Francis University, and he is currently working on a book tentatively titled Bodies in Motion: A Religious History of Sports in America.  Our article features brief vignettes of famous Christian athletes who starred in their sports long before Tim Tebow became the most prominent symbol of the Christian athlete. We've got Billy Sunday, Amos Alonzo Stagg, Christy Mathewson, Joe Louis, Dan Towler, Gil Dodds, Bob Feller, Wilma Rudolph, and more. Click here to check it out.
