More Details 

Crossing the Goal: Playbook on the Virtues from Emmaus Road Publishing maps out a strategy for becoming godly men. Written by Coach Danny Abramowicz and team members Peter Herbeck, Curtis Martin, and Brian Patrick of the popular EWTN Global Catholic Network series by the same name, this Bible study guide serves as a companion to the sports-format show. While readers can use the study guide on their own, it is even better when shared with a group of men. The “Leading a Discussion” section gives sure-to-win pointers to the “quarterbacks” or group leaders. “To Talk About” suggestions can launch discussions or give readers things to think about on their own.


Complete with on-screen photos and space for taking personal notes, the team’s playbook briefly summarizes the main points of the nine episodes. Segments featured for each episode include Kickoff (tackling a real problem men face), Game Plan (identifying the virtue needed to overcome the challenge), The Red Zone (serving up advice from the men who have been there), and The End Zone (applying practical, faith-filled wisdom to secure the victory). Pre-Game and Halftime sections further inspire readers of this book to become the virtuous men God has called them to be.
