Michael O'Connor

$22.99

God loves baseball. He even uses it for His own good purposes. If anyone would know, it is Michael O'Connor. In October of 1986, O'Connor was watching game six of the World Series. Through a bizarre and unlikely rally, God captured his undivided attention. ^^Convinced God was orchestrating the New York Mets' phenomenal comeback, O'Connor began analyzing why God would rig a game watched by millions - for his benefit. Why would God care about him? ^^Sermon on the Mound reveals that God is available to us everywhere -even in our national pastime. "Like God, baseball has always focused on relationship," O'Connor writes. "Owner to manager. Manager to player. Player to fan. It is as simple as fathers playing catch with their sons and as complex as a ball smacking the pocket of a well-oiled glove that echoes and ripples throughout generations." ^^With baseball stories and reflections that range from the hilarious to the sacred, Sermon on the Mound is the perfect book for anyone who loves the game.

- Publisher 13 Chapters

- Publisher With the perfect blend of wry humor and baseball anecdotes, this book provides an entertaining devotional that finds parallels between the game of baseball and God's working in a heart and life. Fan-friendly stories and analogies teach without preaching.
