Book Review - Coach John Wooden, by R. L. Sumner

It’s hard to find good, extensive book reviews today. One of the few who still does it is Dr. R. L. Sumner, evangelist and editor of The Biblical Evangelist.

The website only lists some of the Reviews and features of each print issue of The Biblical Evangelist. Currently it is carrying Sumner’s review of:

COACH WOODEN by Pat Williams with Jim Denny; Revell, a Division of the Baker Publishing Group, Grand Rapids, MI; 8 Chapters, 186 Pages; $17.99

Sumner quotes Wooden as giving the following advice for his players:

* Talent is God-given: be humble.
* Fame is man-given: be thankful.
* Conceit is self-given: be careful.

Not bad advice for preachers as well.  Of course there is much more than this to the Book Review.

Other Reviews this issue:
