PUJOLS more than the game Book Review

Pin It Now!

   Around here with so many boys in the house Baseball and other sports are always a running conversation around here and one of my hubby's favorite Baseball players is Albert Pujols so when I was presented with the opportunity to review his book I was so excited to be able to get it for my hubby. My hubby has only recently taken a liking to reading and I knew this would be a wonderful opportunity to strengthen his love for reading good quality Christian books by him being able to read about his favorite ball player and now that he is finished reading it he has passed it onto our middle son to read as well.
          Here is what the publisher has to say about this wonderful book:
A powerful story of the athleticism and strong faith of Albert Pujols, one of the all-time greatest baseball players.

It is for good reason that Albert Pujols routinely tops the list of the greatest players in modern Major League Baseball. Among all Major Leaguers who ever played the game, Pujols already ranks in the top twenty in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, and adjusted on-base plus slugging. He is simply one of the greatest offensive players in baseball history.

But when the adulation comes his way, Pujols points people to an even greater hero, directing them to Christ. “At the end of the day,” he says, “as long as I glorify him, and those 45,000 people know who I represent every time I step out on the field, that’s what it’s about. It’s about representing God.” This book will satisfy MLB fans who like baseball slathered in amazing stats, and it will shed light on the faith that makes it all possible.

   My husband thoroughly enojed reading this book and getting to know his favorite ball players story of his walk with God as well as how God has influenced his game of ball and also the Game of Life.
  I highly recommend this for the sports fan in your life, it will give them new insight to the man behind the jersey.
