I love the Olympics, as a kid I was a walking-talking Olympic encyclopedia. In preparation for the 2020 games Jeremy Dover, Peter Nelson and myself embarked on an exciting project; collaborating to write a sports devotional called The Spirit of Victory. The book provides a daily devotional for each day of the games taking readers deep into Scripture. Like athletes, we had some obstacles to overcome as the Olympics were postponed until 2021. I made this video during Victoria’s 2020 extended lockdown. The Olympics in my backyard. Enjoy!
Parts of The Spirit of Victory will feature each day of the Olympics in Christian Today Australia and the book, published by Star Label Publishing, will be available through all good online bookstores soon.
