Publisher's Description

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.

    I really enjoyed reading this book. It is a short read but could also be read like a daily devotional. Each page has a different baseball player who talks about their faith in God. I enjoyed reading about the faith of baseball players. I recommend this book. It will strengthen your faith in God. So many great famous baseball players are Christian too. It is a very encouraging book.

    This was a really nice book with short stories on the faith life of baseball players. As a mom of boys who play baseball, I think it's a nice reinforcement for them to keep things in perspective and the stories are short enough to keep their attention. Might be nice to read one a day as part of one's devotional time. Would also be a great resource to use to inspire any youth involved in a sport. I also appreciated the fact that it includes sports stars from various religious backgrounds. The quality of the book in both content and materials was A+.

    Baseball Faith by Rob Maaddi would make an excellent gift for the baseball fan in your life, and I would say that the book is appropriate for just about any age. This is a substantial book, despite the fact that it is softcover. Every page is glossy paper, which helps bring the photographs to life. Maaddi has collected short reflections from 52 Major League Baseball players and included those reflections with an excellent picture of the player, their career stats, bio, and their favorite Scripture. You aren't going to get any kind of earth-shattering theology from this book. But it is a VERY WELL presented, Christian-based collection of information on these MLB players that any fan would love. The most notable players (in my mind) are Dusty Baker, Lance Berkman, Mike Dunn, Chase Headley, Matt Holliday, Clayton Kershaw, Pedro Martinez, Andy Pettitte, Albert Pujols, Mariano Rivera, John Smoltz, Mark Teixeira, and Ben Zobrist. Of course, that's coming from a Yankees Fan!

    I am not a sports fan. I may not have recognized the baseball players names. But I enjoy reading the stories of faith from the heart of players. I hear stories in news of bad things in sports world. It was refreshing to hear the faith of players. a great devotional book for a sports fan.

    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.
