They dominated college football and stood strong for their faith. Now, as they storm the NFL, learn all about “the three quarterbacks”: Bradford, McCoy, and Tebow. Dubbed the “Holy Trinity” by sportswriters, the Oklahoma Sooners’ Sam Bradford, the Texas Longhorns’ Colt McCoy, and the Florida Gators’ Tim Tebow are now eyeing professional glory. But starring on Sunday afternoons follows years of developing Christian faith on Sunday mornings. Playing with Purpose will introduce you to three young men of both physical and spiritual strength, athletes at the top of their game who also speak publicly and convincingly of their belief in God. Includes a section of color photographs!
