Reviews - What do customers think about The Faith of 50 Million: Baseball, Religion, and American Culture?

Thank God for Baseball  Nov 5, 2007
I expected a review of the phenomenon of baseball in American culture. What I didn't expect was good scholarship and fine theological reflection! Both are there. The essays are wonderful and examine the parallels between Christianity and baseball from the perspectives of history, ethics, and hope. Read it before your next trip to the ball park!
