Tracy Trothen is very pleased to announce the publication of her latest book, Spirituality, Sport, and Doping: More than Just a Game

Spirituality, Sport, and Doping: More than Just a Game 
By Springer International Publishing

This book explores the deeper meaning of sports. Drawing on contemporary research, the author makes a strong case for why we should see sport not only in terms of religion but--more importantly-as a possible location for spiritual meaning. Taking this a step farther, she considers how gene editing, robotics, and other biomedical technological enhancements affect not only sports performances but experiences of sport as sacred. In addition, the author explores what difference it might make to the enhancement debate if sports’ spirituality is taken seriously.
