For legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden, the Bible was a major influence in his life—one that impacted not only sports but people from every walk of life. He wrote in his autobiography: “My father read to us from the Bible every day when I was growing up”—a practice Wooden continued into college and throughout his life. One of his favorite Bible chapters was 1 Corinthians 13, known by many as the “Love Chapter.” It underscored not only Wooden’s iconic coaching style but his family relationships and the way he treated team members. “If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging symbol.” Engage with the Bible—in the legacy of John Wooden’s encouragement to “Drink deeply from good books, especially the Bible!”
