This book is entertaining and educational: fanciful and inspirational. And God Said, "Play Ball!" makes the Bible more approachable by relating it to a game loved by both children and adults. It also shows that baseball is not only a game, but a never-ending series of lessons about life, as well. The book is divided into 18 chapters, each representing one half inning of a baseball game. In each half inning a topic is explored, with parallels being drawn between the Bible and the game. Author Gary Graf has been a baseball fan for more than 40 years and a Catholic longer than that. You won't find a more inspiring gift for the baseball fan in your life.
