The answers to two crucial questions will transform your life and your sport: Who is Jesus? And what does it mean to follow him? The New Testament book of Mark addresses both of these questions. Mark unfolds the truth about the amazing, unrivaled identity of “Jesus Christ, the Son of God” (Mark 1:1). Because of who Jesus is, this invitation he issues must be taken seriously: “Follow me” (Mark 1:17).

The Christ-Following Athlete is a systematic study through Mark for athletes who want to encounter Jesus and follow him. In Mark’s fast-paced narrative, you will see what Jesus does, listen to what he says, watch how he interacts with a variety of people, and consider what he desires for you and your life. The goal is to help you know Jesus more deeply and live for him more fully, with a special emphasis on applying this to how you compete. If you want to grow as a Christ- following athlete, utilize this study guide to journey through the book of Mark.
