discussion questions

JOE GIBBS                    A Game Plan for Life
• If life is like a football game, what quarter are you playing?
• Who designed your game plan, and how is it working?
• What aspects of your game do you need to work on?
• How can your teammates support you?




TONY EVANS                   A Man and His Purpose
• In one sentence, what is the purpose of your life?
• How have your past experiences shaped who you are?
• In what arenas do you have the opportunity to influence others or society in a positive and
    God-honoring way?




RAVI ZACHARIAS               A Man and His Character
• When you hear the words sin or sinner, what feelings come up for you? For example,
    anger, guilt, confusion, fear, etc.
• All games have rules—guidelines that all players must obey—and violating the rules
    generally incurs some sort of penalty or even disqualification. What do you think are the
    rules for the game of life that all people should obey?
• What do you do when you realize that you have violated some of the rules?
• What do you do when someone you know violates some of the rules?




RANDY ALCORN                 A Man and His Future
• What have you learned about Heaven that interests or excites you?
• How does the biblical view of Heaven differ from what most people seem to think?
• Is heaven the default destination for everyone?
• How can you know for sure you will go to Heaven when you die?

Biographies

Coach Joe Gibbs is in the National Football League Hall of Fame on the strength of two stints
as head coach of the Washington Redskins: he led them to three Super Bowl rings in four
attempts, the last time in 2005. He was the San Diego Chargers offensive coordinator in the
record-setting days of “Air Coryell”. When Coach Gibbs left football in 1991, he founded Joe
Gibbs Racing, which promptly began amassing sponsorships and NASCAR victories; the
team holds three NASCAR championships. His passion for ministry was evident as far back
as 1986 when he helped launch Youth For Tomorrow to provide housing, schooling, and
counseling to at-risk youth in the Washington metropolitan area. In addition to his book A
Game Plan for Life, Coach Gibbs is author of Fourth and One and Racing for Life.

Dr. Tony Evans, co-founder and senior pastor of the over 8,000-member Oak Cliff Bible
Fellowship Church in Dallas, is a champion for rebuilding communities and reconciling races.
He serves as president of The Urban Alternative, an organization dedicated to spiritual
renewal in America through the church. His daily radio broadcast, “The Alternative with Dr.
Tony Evans,” can be heard on more than 600 stations daily throughout the United States and
in more than 40 countries. His TV broadcasts can also be seen on several television
networks. Dr. Evans has written nearly 30 books, including The Kingdom Agenda and A
Whole New You.

(www.rzim.org), is a speaker and author on apologetics and evangelism whose lecture

accord, the Peruvian president's cabinet and Parliament, and military officers in Moscow at
Lenin Military Academy and the Center for Geopolitical Strategy. He was honorary chairman
of the 2008 National Day of Prayer task force. He has authored or edited more than 20 books;
since 2006 these include The Grand Weaver, The End of Reason, Is There Not a Cause, and
the latest in the Jesus Talks series, New Birth or Rebirth: Jesus Talks with Krishna.
