‘Mormon Land’: NFL Hall of Famer Steve Young lays out a new game plan for life: the law of love

Former BYU quarterback talks about a higher, holier way of healing, helping others.

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Steve Young speaks at the Silicon Slopes Summit in 2022. His new book is titled "The Law of Love."

Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young, the former BYU star who earned multiple MVP awards and Super Bowl rings with the NFL’s San Francisco 49ers, ranks among the most famous members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Recently, though, Young has turned from tactics for victory on the football field to strategies for winning at life — namely by living his religion, following Christ, helping to heal others, and, ultimately, loving all people, no matter whether they are in their personal journeys, as God loves them.

Yes, he does draw on his gridiron experiences in his book “The Law of Love,” but he also reveals much about his own shyness, anxiety and insecurity.

On this week’s show, Young discuss a more expansive, more exultant and more exalting kind of love.
