Communicating on the Playing Field by Josef Solc
Book Review by Kiristina Bolton

When Josef Solc left his home of Czechoslovakia in 1968 to pursue a life of a pastor over professional athlete status, he took with him a wealth of knowledge about the skeletal fundaments of sports and building upon them the body of Christ. Although widely known for his natural stardom in the arena of tennis and ice hockey, Solc gave up this path and picked up a new direction in the field of ministry. His calling to evangelism and life within the church was in direct contrast from the communist rule governing his country. In his book, Communication on the Playing Field, Solc recalls the process of laying down sports for himself and picking up sports for the sake of sharing the Gospel with others.
