In The Games People Play, Robert Ellis constructs a theology around the global cultural phenomenon of modern sport, paying particular attention to its British and American manifestations. Using historical narrative and social analysis to enter the debate on sport as religion, Ellis shows that modern sport may be said to have taken on some of the functions previously vested in organized religion. Through biblical and theological reflection, he presents a practical theology of sport's appeal and value, with special attention to the theological concept of transcendence. Throughout, he draws on original empirical work with sports participants and spectators. The Games People Play addresses issues often considered problematic in theological discussions of sport such as gender, race, consumerism, and the role of the modern media, as well as problems associated with excessive competition and performance-enhancing substances. As Ellis explains, "Sporting journalists often use religious language in covering sports events. Salvation features in many a headline, and talk of moments of redemption is not uncommon. Perhaps, somewhere beyond the cliched hyperbole, there is some theological truth in all this after all."

Tell your Adult and Parent to shut up and get out of the way. Run out that door into the sunshine and watch the butterflies flutter by. Feel, see, hear and smell the wonderful world all around you with the freshness and energy of a little kid. Put some fun and adventure into your life. Yes, you can literally run out the door. I hope you do. You can also run out the door sitting in your chair. Over the years you have accumulated many heavy assumptions about yourself and the world. Smash your way through and out the door. Be a kid again and fly wild and free. Explore and expand what you can think, feel and become. Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up. Pablo Picasso Yes, sometimes you do and say things you regret, like impolitely telling your Adult and Parent to shut up. Sometimes you go back to sleep and forget to be aware. Sometimes you and the world are not fair. But, because you try hard to be honest and aware. Because you try hard to see yourself and Reality as clearly as you can. Way down deep, beyond the roles and the games and the scripts, you are OK. So say hello to Ayn Rand, and Get out that door.

After covering the genre's early history and theorizing its general characteristics, this volume then focuses on specific instances of sports films, such as the biopic, the sports history film, the documentary, the fan film, the boxing film, and explores issues such as gender, race, spectacle and silent comedy. Four major films are then closely analysed – Chariots of Fire, Field of Dreams, the Indian cricket epic Lagaan, and Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday. While recording American film's importance to the genre, the book resists the conventional over-concentration on American cinema and sports by its attention to other cinemas, for example the British, Indian, Australian, South Korean, Thai, German, New Zealand, Spanish, and so on, with the many different sports they depict.
