* This article in The Wall Street Journal is a must read. Writer Jon Shields writes about the Christian life of Manute Bol. Bol was a 7’7″ tall basketball player who was from Sudan. He passed away last week. Shields writes of Bol’s Christian commitment and the contrast of how the word redemption is used in the sports world. He correctly applies it to the life of this giant of a man who gave himself and all his resources away for the people of his homeland.
