Overview

In Western culture, a man’s worth so often hinges on his performance, career, and success. For bestselling author Dave Dravecky, worth was once defined by his career as an all-star pitcher in the Major Leagues—until he lost his arm to cancer.

In this inspirational book, Dravecky speaks from a place of first-handpersonal experience with loss and setbacks. Examining the traditional benchmarks men so often define themselves by—including jobs, successes, setbacks, friendships, and families—Dravecky navigates a new path to self-worth based on Christian teaching faithand compelling personal experience.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Once an all-star pitcher for the San Francisco Giants, Dave Dravecky lost the deltoid muscle in his pitching arm to cancer in 1988. Defying all the odds, he came back to pitch again a year later. Just five days after a stunning performance, securing a 4-3 win for his team, Dravecky sustained two successive and devastating injuries to his arm that ended his pitching career for good.

In subsequent years, Dravecky would lose his entire arm, his left shoulder blade, and the left side of his collarbone to cancer. But whenever God closes a door, he opens a window—and the window He opened for Dave led to a career as a best-selling author. Dravecky’s award-winning first book, Comeback, sold over 650,000 copies.

An in-demand speaker, Dave is known for delivering messages of hope and inspiration—to both Christian and secular audiences. Along with his wife, Jan, Dravecky is also the founder of Dave Dravecky’s Outreach of Hope, a nonprofit organization and ministry dedicated to helping cancer survivors.
