Product Description

Product Description

Are there spiritual truths to be gleaned from the world of baseball? Borrowing colorful anecdotes from America’s favorite pastime, David B. Smith finds eternal lessons from the countless Dodger games he has watched – and often endured. From the ineptitude of Bob “Mr. Baseball” Uecker to the famous Kirk Gibson homer in ’88, we find renewed faith from an ancient book that actually starts out with: “In the big inning.”

HASH(0x9b1b1e7c) out of 5 stars Questons Asked July 13 2012
By mamatraub - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Asked by one of his students, "Does God already know who's going to be saved and who's going to be lost?" Here comes the follow-up, 'Does He try hard to save even those He knows aren't going to make it?". He has a great answer, keep on thinking.

HASH(0x9b1b72c4) out of 5 stars coming from a woman - not a baseball fan Aug. 8 2012
By SimplyReads - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This would be a fun devotional or simply a relaxing, yet challenging book for the baseball fan. David Smith uses baseball illustrations to present the gospel in easy to understand format. I do think this was written for guys, but it was still fun for a gal to read.

The random typos in the Kindle format seem typical, but it is worth ignoring those to enjoy a fresh perspective. As usual, compare Mr. Smith's theology to the Bible instead of following blindly. Overall, it is a great book for men, for speakers to find illustrations or short devotionals, or simply for run reading.

HASH(0x9b1b74ec) out of 5 stars Analogy of Christian Life using Baseball as the model. Nov. 26 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Shares moments of Baseball, America’s great pastime while analogizing these to the benefits of being a born again Christian, sharing great events of Biblical history, and God’s promises for eternal life.
HASH(0x9b1b73e4) out of 5 stars Great baseball stories March 19 2014

Really enjoyed the baseball stories. They were very funny and capitivating. The scriptural message was very good.
A great read.
