Theology: The Good and Bad in Sport

Jay Carney, co-author of the new book on Catholic theology and sport called On the Eighth Day, joins the show to discuss sport and theology. Jay describes the ways in which he came into this field and the work he currently does. And if you missed it, Jay recently gave a talk at DePaul University on a theology of fans and fan behavior in sport.

Can a Christian authentically be a sports fan? Well, there’s possibility for good and possibility for bad. Jay navigates through it all with the enthusiasm of your favorite professor, offering normative guidance along the way. Have you ever heard of anticipatory reflection? He describes this and so much more.
