:
After watching his career as a professional baseball player go down in flames, Cy Young Award-winner Barry Zito discovered a real connection with God and a renewed passion for life.


In 2007, pitcher Barry Zito signed a seven-year, $126 million contract with the San Francisco Giants. At that time, it was the largest contract ever given to a pitcher. He was at the top of his game, in peak physical condition, and had the kind of financial security most people can only dream of.


He was also miserable. And it began to show. Zito's career declined over the next few years until he hit rock bottom-watching from the bench as his team won the World Series in 2010.


In the months that followed, Zito came face-to-face with the destructiveness of his own ego-his need to be viewed as the best. He also came face-to-face with God and with the truth that he was loved no matter what he achieved.


In Curveball, Zito shares his story with honesty and transparency. The ups and the downs. The wins and losses. By sharing his experiences as a man who had everything except happiness, Zito offers readers a path through adversity and toward a life defined by true success.

Robert Noland

Robert Noland began his writing career as a songwriter in 1983, then spent the next 10 years as a touring musician and producer, penning lyrics for artists such as Glen Campbell, Babbie Mason, and Gabriel. He wrote his first series of Bible studies in 1988 and in 1991 wrote his first Christian devotional book for a para church ministry. Noland has since authored over 50 titles spanning across children, youth, and adult audiences. In 1996, he wrote a Christian follow-up booklet entitled LifeChange, which to date has sold over one million copies. In 2011, Noland released his first book titled The Knight's Code and in 2012 released 3SG, a Men's Small Group Manual. He blogs regularly at theknightscode.com. Since 2011, Noland has been a freelance writer and author for faith-based organizations, ministries, and Christian publishers. A book co-authored with Randy Frazee, entitled Think, Act, Believe Like Jesus, was released in December 2014. Regardless of the target audience or mode of delivery via paper or digital, Robert writes what he calls practical application of Biblical truth. He lives in Franklin, TN with his wife of 30 years and has two adult sons.
