Overview

What does it mean to be a
God-glorifying baseball player?

Diamond Gems: Life Lessons between the Lines reminds Christian athletes and coaches of God's mandate to "proclaim the excellencies of Him" while on the field of play. Each chapter teaches a fundamental baseball principle and uses that concept as a means to establish an even greater connection with an essential doctrine of the Christian faith.

This book is much more than a Christian devotional about baseball. It is a strong reminder of the glorious gospel of Jesus Christ and how it manifests itself through the life of a Christian baseball player. It is a helpful tool for those who desire to establish a stronger foundation both as a Christian and as a baseball player.

David Ray is a former high school baseball coach and currently serves as principal of Lorraine Elementary School in Georgia. He played baseball at the University of Kentucky and has been drafted professionally by the Oakland A's, the Los Angeles Dodgers, and the Kansas City Royals. He also earned a Master of Divinity degree at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and a Doctor of Education degree from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He and his wife, Mary Pat, live in Conyers, Georgia, and are the parents of two children, Rebekah and Jonathan.
