It’s that time when all resources and effort must be expended to reach the goal. It’s that time when the men get separated from the boys. During this time, committed athletes who perform at their peak level distance themselves from those players who just show up. Charismatic leaders use this time to motivate, inspire, and direct their teams to victory. Dr. Grassi shows you how to incorporate that Red Zone mentality into your life—not just to win a football game, but also to win at life. These readings mix faith, stories, and information to inspire and entertain everyone who loves the game of football.
With the Logos edition of Crunch Time In the Red Zone, you can make your Bible study more effective. Scripture references link directly to your favored Bible translation, making your Bible study and teaching preparations more effective and rewarding.
