Passing It On


 
Would anyone like a good book to read?
 
I recently won this book from Kimberly at A Fresh Perspective. I enjoyed the book and would like to pass it on. It's a captivating and well written book. It will keep your attention from the first sentence. Although, it has a theme centered around baseball, you don't have to like baseball to enjoy it.
 
 
In the words of Max Lucado, who happens to be one of my favorite authors,
 
"Home Run reminds us of the power of forgiveness, the richness of redemption, and the wisdom of trusting God to revive us."
 
 
Here's the description from the back of the book:
 

Baseball star Cory Brand knows how to win. But off the field, he’s spiraling out of control. Haunted by old wounds and regrets, his future seems as hopeless as his past.
 
Until one moment—one mistake—changes everything. To save his career, Cory must go back to the town where it all began. His plan is simple: coach the local baseball team, complete a recovery program, and get out as fast as possible. Instead, he runs headfirst into memories he can’t escape ... and the love he left behind.
 
Faced with a second chance he never expected, Cory embarks on a journey of faith, transformation and redemption. And along the way, he discovers a powerful truth: no one is beyond the healing of God.
 

A novel based on the major motion picture starring Vivica A. Fox and Scott Elrod, Home Run is an inspirational story of the hope and freedom God offers each of us.

  3. Hi Cathy, I have been using the new Feedly instead of my google reader and feel I miss some of the blogs I belong to. It has been interesting to get use to this new reader. I think I like it on most days but just know I am missing out on some of the blogs I like to visit. Hope all is well with you.

  4. Sounds like a good book! I read a book about a high school basketball team (wasn't Christian, but was wholesome) and I enjoyed that too even though I am not a big basketball fan. So for me it is more about the story than the sport :)
