.This book shows how God can change your life if you will let him. It talks about the lives of Christian baseball players. It shows how they accepted Christ, and how God has changed their lives.The book is about professional baseball players. Each chapter is about a different player. Each player has their own separate story to tell. The players tell how they accepted Jesus into their lives, and how he has changed them.This is a very good book. It can change your life. It shows how God can change your life in so many ways. I would recommend this book to anybody. I like this book because it is about baseball and Jesus.

I would recommend this book to anybody to read. It is a great book.

I really like this book. This is a book that I will read over and over again. It is so inspiring to know that there are Christian athletes out there. I would recommend reading the other playing with purpose books. They are really great books to read. I had a hard time putting this book down.
