Religion and Sport: The Meeting of Sacred and Profane

Synopsis

Prebish offers a thoughtful look at sport as a religious experience and argues that sport has become an American religion. The first part of the book contains three essays that consider the meaning of sport and religion and the relationship between the two. An anthology of five chapters follows. These chapters, written by leading authorities in the field, represent a significant work on the religious dimension of sport. The chapters fully analyze the interplay of sport and religion from sociological, historical, theological, philosophical, and psychological perspectives. A final chapter by Prebish offers some closing thoughts, and a bibliography lists works for further reading.
