I knew of Chris Norman for several years. As a pastor in East Lansing it was hard not to. He was one of our best linebackers–tough, fast, hard hitting. At some point I heard he had become a Christian. “Very cool,” I thought.
Then last year I was speaking at Athletes In Action on campus and made a point to talk to this big, attentive athlete in the second row. Turned out to be Chris Norman. I was immediately impressed by his demeanor, his intelligence, his distaste for spiritual garbage, and his desire to learn and grow. I’m thrilled to see Desiring God release this impressive video about an impressive young man who is more than impressed by our great God.
