Game Changer

Everyone is probably talking about Germany vs. USA in this round of the world cup. But what stood out to me more wasn't the goal that won, but the incredible sportsmanship being shown on both teams. 

It wasn't all about winning and ousting the other team like Uruguay did, when one of the team players bit someone. It was about working together and playing a game they love to play. That should be everyone's reason to play a game.

In Game Changer, readers see that record-setting quarterback for Michigan State University and draft pick of the NFL's Washington Redskins, Kirk Cousins pens an accessible and compelling collection of life principles for readers young and old. With engaging stories from his award-winning career, Cousins illustrates core biblical concepts while encouraging good choices, and, in the process, readers get an inside look at high-stakes football as well as the personal and highly motivating reflections of a much-respected athlete.

Now in softcover, Game Changer is a great pick for parents, coaches, athletes, camps, FCA groups, and family explorations. It is not a self-glorifying biography or a sterile collection of dos and don'ts, but rather a dispatch from a real Christian life-with all its ups and downs-lived under the bright lights of college and professional football.


  • Personal stories and struggles of a competitive Christian athlete
  • Truthful discussion of media hype and modern sports culture
  • Reflections on honesty, humility, hard work, and privilege
