Umpires, referees, and line judges rarely receive the appreciation they deserve. Think about it. Without officials, there would be no game! As our obsession with winning overtakes good sportsmanship, our rebellion against authority increases.
Officials' TimeOut is a book for sports officials. This book is intended to encourage, motivate, and inspire those who call athletic contests. We who play and coach owe much to these authorities.
Finally, this book is intended to direct every reader to the one Official to whom we must one day give an account. his name is Jesus. May he draw you to Himself by the power of His Spirit!
