Baseball Faith
52 MLB Stars Reflect on Their Faith
By Rob Maaddi

Baseball Faith gives readers an inside look at 52 baseball players who share how their faith has shaped their lives and careers.

Each player featured has a full page picture of them with the facing page a sharing of their faith testimony headed by a Bible verse. The following two pages are followed by life and career stats.

This book is interesting as it provides a look at these select players that one wouldn't necessarily expect to ever see. There is a mix of players (and even some coaches) from several different eras and backgrounds who are bound together by their love of baseball and God.

This book would be a perfect gift for a baseball aficionado and be a great tabletop book. This book is over 200 pages  (52 of them being player photographs) with a Scripture index in the back of the book. The text type is nicely sized so easily read - no squinting required here.

I received a complimentary copy of this book from Barbour Publishing and was under no obligation to post a review.


About the Book:
Winning the World Series may be the ultimate prize for most MLB players,
but a relationship with Jesus Christ is No. 1 for many diamond stars, including:
  • Hall of Famer John Smoltz
  • Three-time Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw
  • MVP Albert Pujols
  • All-Star Mariano Rivera
  • And dozens more.
Baseball Faith will inspire you in your faith journey as 52 MLB players--past and present--share their stories and how they are chasing the success that only comes from being God's man and following His plan. These men are committed to living their lives with eternity in mind. Empowered by God, they are looking beyond the competition to a larger goal: following God's game plan for their lives as team players, as husbands, fathers, sons, and then using their influence to point others toward Him.
