High-profile expressions of faith by athletes have become routine in pro sports since Lusk's October 1977 run. A new book by religion writer Tom Krattenmaker explores how it happened, and asks whether it's a good thing.

"Some love it, some really resent it. The comedians have a field day with it,'' said Krattenmaker, author of "Onward Christian Athletes.''

I'm certain that the Bible-haters are dreading Tim Tebow going to the NFL.
