This book presents an uncommon life from an uncommon man. Coach Tony Dungy speaks as a man who has experienced almost anything that could happen to a man. He has walked the gambit of being a husband, father, head coach of an NFL team, a grieving parent and a man in relationship with his God.
Tony Dungy has challenged men to take one year of their life and live it to its fullest. Live an uncommon life beyond what they think is possible. He challenges men and because of the reputation he has rightfully earned men respond. Men look to Tiny to bring it when it comes to challenging them.
In this daily devotional, Tony divides up the readings into three portions. First, scriptures form the first portion of their reading. The second portion contains a story or an important concept fleshed out for men to understand. The uncommon key allows men to take what they have read in scripture and from Tony’s story and helps them to apply the concepts to their own life.
My only concern with this devotional rests in the same thing you see from any devotional. How does the story or concept portion do in lining up with Scripture? From what I have been able to ascertain in reading this book, Tony Dungy has an orthodox and solid view of scripture.
This book could turn into one of the best devotionals men have seen in the last few years. We will be using it in our church’s men’s small groups this spring. The challenge issued. The challenge accepted to live an uncommon life. Check out coach’s challenge to you.
