Tony Dungy No. 1 on NYT Bestsellers List

Super Bowl winning coach Tony Dungy’s new book, Quiet Strength: The Principles, Practices & Priorities of a Winning Life, debuted at No. 2 last week on the New York Times best-seller list for hardcover, non-fiction books. As of today, it is now No. 1 on the list. Kevin Jackson of the Christian Post reports:

While Quiet Strength does mention Dungy’s career in the NFL, a major purpose for the content is to highlight the coach’s faith on and off the field. Through it, he hoped to show people that there is more to life than just sports, and that humans need God leading their steps no matter where they are.

“I really wanted to show people you can win all kinds of ways,” explained the Colts head in his memoir. “For your faith to be more important than your job, for your family to be more important than that job … we all know that’s the way it should be … I’m not afraid to say it.”

Tony has a great testimony to share, and it is fantastic to see his book doing so well.

    Its really great to see that a strong Christian man is being recognized for his faith and committment to God. This really shows that REAL MEN do believe in Christ and have fear of their Lord. Way to go Tony.

    I’ve read 3/4 of the book and truly have been blessed and inspired by Coach Dundy’s writing. As the previous gentleman wrote “REAL MEN” do believe in Christ. I pray that this book will find it’s way into the hands of boys who are impressed by the jocks of this world. Thank you, Tony!
