This diverse collection of the best literature available on the topic includes ground-breaking studies and recent popular and academic articles. Part I considers the case for and against sport as a religion within the context of popular and academic definitions. The potential of the sporting experience as an avenue to religious insight is examined in Part II. Part III focuses on the pervasiveness of religious gestures in sport and examines their significance for both sport and religion. Finally, Part IV explores the impact of religious views on perceptions and behaviour in sport.
