Abstract

This book provides a major contribution to the religious studies and theological study and understanding of sport. It explores the dialectical relationship between sports and Christianity across diverse global cultures, extending beyond a western centric perspective of Christianity. The volume contains contributions from leading experts within the field to provide ethnographic, theoretical and theological reflections on sport in Africa, Australasia, Asia and Europe. The chapters also explore the secularisation thesis and western sports and examine violent sports such as boxing and Mixed Martial Arts from a Christian standpoint, as well as reflecting on sporting celebrity and the theology of disability sport.
