It’s no secret many sports fans have an almost religious affiliation with their teams. But when does the interaction between faith and big-time sports run into trouble?

That’s the subject of Marcia Mount Shoop’s new book, Touchdowns For Jesus And Other Signs of Apocalypse.

She’s a theologian and the wife of the Purdue football team’s offensive coordinator.

WBAA’s Stan Jastrzebski visited a Purdue football practice recently to chat with her about the book.
