Although My Father's Faith is set against the backdrop of Ernie Harwell's amazing experience in baseball, it's not just a sports book. It's a very personal story of my dad's spiritual journey, as seen through the eyes of his youngest son.
If you're a fan who often listened to my dad's broadcasts, if you were a baseball or media professional who knew him as a colleague, or one of his many friends, I think you'll enjoy this book. You'll discover how his challenging childhood in Atlanta affected his early perspective in life, how an experience in his second year with the Tigers changed things dramatically for him, and how he became the amazing man we knew and loved.

About the Author
For the last nineteen years the Harwells have encouraged pastors and spiritual leaders through Cherith Ministries, which they founded in Atlanta, Georgia in 1995. Many spiritual leaders have been strengthened in their relationships with God, and have also experienced a new depth of unity in the Body of Christ which has impacted their churches and communities.
After Gray's father, Hall of Fame baseball broadcaster, Ernie Harwell, passed away in 2010, Gray wrote My Father's Faith, and produced a companion DVD of his father's last interview. Gray shares the story of his father's faith in churches and community groups and he and Sandy are developing other ministries to carry on Ernie's legacy of faith and compassion. Together In Prayer (TIP), a partnership of churches in Southwest Florida, is one of these new ministries. Since May, 2012, Gray has been leading TIP's ministry of bringing churches together in prayer, service and outreach.
Gray and Sandy have four adult children and four grandchildren and live in Estero, Florida.
