Birds of Pray: By Rob Maaddi
High Stakes, Deep Faith, and Unbreakable Brotherhood
They were the first No. 1 seed in NFL history to enter the playoffs as an underdog. Their star quarterback was out with a season-ending knee injury. Five-time Super Bowl champions the New England Patriots towered over them. But public opinion didn’t matter to the Philadelphia Eagles. They believed in each other. The band of Christian brothers on the team believed in the God of the impossible, and they played for an audience of One.
The most extensive book to explore the Christian faith shared by many of the team’s players, Birds of Pray details the incredible inside story behind the Eagles’ capture of the biggest prize in professional sports: the Vince Lombardi Trophy. Through exclusive interviews with the players, never-before-seen photos, and insider accounts of the miracle season’s most memorable moments, Philly native and Associated Press sportswriter Rob Maaddi reveals a side of the team the world has yet to fully witness.
From an impromptu baptism in the team’s cold tub to weekly Bible studies and pre-game prayers, to the unique friendship between star quarterback Carson Wentz and back-up-then-MVP Nick Foles – the Eagles excel in the unexpected. Birds of Pray follows the deep faith shared among players, the high stakes they faced together, and their relentless reliance on Christ who gives all strength in moments of crisis and celebration alike. The result is a boldly inspiring, entertaining read that will challenge readers to go deeper in their faith, dream bigger, and live with renewed courage for whatever odds life stacks against them.
Biblical Strategies – By Phil Moser
The Biblical Strategies Booklet Series is comprised of brief, 60-70 page booklets that provide both biblical instruction, and suggestions for putting into practice truths that were learned.
The Scripture Retrieval Method is a unique approach to memorizing Biblical passages. A select set 20 Bible verses are chosen for specific temptations. To expose temptation’s deception we memorize ten verses in the lie/truth formula. To weaken temptation’s appeal we learn ten promises about the character of God and the nature of the gospel. To aid in understanding, biblical commentary is found on the back of each card.
