More than Gold

The summer Olympics are happening again and this time, it's in Brazil! Time and time again, the headline news flash different athletes as happy or sad, winning gold, silver or bronze for their country.

Countrymen are on the edge of their seats, cheering for their representatives as they make a mark across history. Is this wrong? Of course not! Is this the top priority in life? Of course! Or is it?

David Boudia begs to differ. Although in his early career, he did chase after the gold just as these current athletes are.

What's the difference?

In the intervening years, he’d changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God. In Greater Than Gold, Boudia provides a behind-the-scenes access to the rarefied world of world-class athletics while also showing readers that when they place their hope in God, they receive what they’ve been seeking all along.

Read about how one of America’s most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and whole-heartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: he mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze.
