Product Description

Sixteen years ago, Vin Baker was an NBA All-Star, an Olympic Gold medalist, and a multimillionaire. While he excelled on the court, Vin harbored a dark secret: a dependency on drugs and alcohol that began after the clean-cut preacher’s son turned pro. Eventually becoming a full-blown yet functional alcoholic, Vin convinced himself he played better under the influence — until his addiction cost him his basketball career, his fortune, and his health.

God and Starbucks is a wise and unflinching look at the real dangers of addiction and the importance of taking charge of your life with meaning and purpose. It’s a powerful memoir about reaching the top and beginning again from the bottom—an inspiring personal tale of humility and grace that reminds us what is truly important in our lives.

Editorial Reviews

“Vin Baker’s skills and abilities defined a generation of big men. While he was fighting incredible basketball players on the court, privately he was struggling with a far greater opponent in addiction. His honest and moving story will inspire change!”
“A wonderful book about God’s power to give do-overs while illuminating what is possible in our hour of darkness. Vin Baker’s engrossing story is a towering example of how salvation is found through faith and hard work.”
