Item Description...
The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns, the unveiling of the Bible's comparison of the Christian race to the Olympic Games, is the spin-off from the newspaper article titled "The Christian Olympics are still going on!" written by the author. Today more than ever Christians are discouraged in their walk with God because of the multitudes of personal problems, suffering, and worldly events that have occurred. Some have given up, lost hope in their faith, and/or don't feel that living holy lives matters anymore. The Christian Olympics will stir up Christians, igniting their spiritual fires to look forward to what is ahead. When Christians see themselves as players in an Olympic game, it gives them a new understanding and exhilaration for the Christian life, as spiritual athletes. Readers will actually visualize themselves in a spiritual athletic competition.

Go For the Gold Crowns  Apr 1, 2008
From the first trumpet call of the extravaganza to the Opening Ceremony, S. E. Gregg captures the contagious excitement and the competitive spirit of the Olympic games in the book "The Christian Olympics: Going for the Gold Crowns." The reader experiences vicariously the thrill of participation in the competition and training, and more importantly learns spiritual lessons for athletes in the Christian race.

There are parallels in the Christian life with those competing in the Olympics. Training and discipline are as important to the life of the Christian as they are to the Olympic competitor. The Christian trains with spiritual lessons learning exercises for walking by faith, stretching by faith, and practicing the discipline of obeying God's will.

Gregg includes planning strategies for running well with specific instructions all stages of life. Using the scriptures as her source the authors gives instructions on getting equipped for the competition beginning with the attire, or what to wear. She then describes the whole armor of God, prayer as our breathing exercise, and being equipped with spiritual gifts.

Facing workouts, suffering, trials, tests, and reproach are all a part of the preparation for the necessary endurance to finish the race well. At the rewards ceremony of the Olympics trophies are presented made of bronze, silver, and gold. These are temporal. In the Christian Olympics the awards include: The Incorruptible Crown, The Crown of Rejoicing, The Crown of Righteousness, The Crown of Life, and the Crown of Glory. These Crowns are eternal.

Gregg's writing is well organized, Biblically sound, inspirational, and challenging. Let the Games Began!

Enthusiastically recommended as inspirational reading for all practicing Christians  Dec 9, 2006
S. E. Gregg has been a marathon runner in the Christian Olympics for several decades and is the founder of Sound Doctrine Christian Ministries. He draws upon this body of experience and expertise in "The Christian Olympics: Going For The Gold Crown" to examine many of the Apostle Paul's metaphors in the New Testament to illustrate the concept of Christians as athletes who pursue the Christian life, a pursuit (like Olympic training and performances) requires endurance, longevity and persistence to finish the race and win the prize - which is eternal life in the Kingdom of God. "The Christian Olympics" is laid out into seven distinctive chapters: The Opening Ceremony; The Players in the Competition; The Training and Discipline; Planning Strategies; The Competitions; The Suffering; The Workout; The Closing and Rewards Ceremonies. Gregg then concludes with `The Competition that Made the Judge Stand Up'. As imaginative and engaging as it is thoughtful and thought-provoking, "The Christian Olympics" is enthusiastically recommended as inspirational reading for all practicing Christians regardless of their denominational affiliation.
