Daily Devotions for Die-Hard Fans: Duke Blue Devils combines the great passion of the Duke fan with the great passion of the fan of Christ into one set of devotions, one book that is fun while providing a time of reflection about God and your faith.
• Duke and UNC were once friends for a day on the basketball court; the result was one of the sloppiest games ever.
• A play that probably didn’t happen helped Duke to one of its greatest football comeback wins ever.
• Coaches took stopwatches out to the track one day and discovered one of the greatest athletes in Duke history.
• Mike Krzyzewski’s mom once said to her son, “I told you so,” and he didn’t mind one bit.
• The player who clinched the 2009 national title for the Duke women’s tennis team didn’t even realize she had done it.
These stories and more are recounted here. Also appearing are Danny Ferry, Ben Bennett, Grant Hill, Christian Laettner, Dick Groat, Alana Beard and many others. Their stories – along with legendary games, improbable victories, and historical events – are told with a twist: They are all tied to God’s story.
Have fun! Have faith!
Go Devils! Go God!
