Baseball as a Road to God by John Sexton

You knocked it out of the park. Playing hardball. Thrown a curveball.

Anyone who loves baseball knows that the sport is more than just a game, it is a perfect analogy for life. And if baseball were a religion, John Sexton would be a modern theologian. John Sexton, the president of New York University, gives of his thoughtful exegesis in his work Baseball as a Road to God.

This book is very straightforward. You do not need a graduate degree in theology or profound historical baseball knowledge. Sexton simply grabs some of the major themes found on the baseball diamond and connects them to religion’s greatest teachings.

It is a wonderful, quick read that I highly recommend. This book could not have been more perfect for me. It is a book about baseball and religion written by a university president.
