This book is entertaining, fanciful and inspirational. It draws from the lives of Jesus and Yogi Berra, Joseph the carpenter and Joe DiMaggio, Moses and Hank Aaron, St. Peter and Jackie Robinson. 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.

About the Author:

Gary Graf has been a baseball fan for more than 40 years and a Catholic longer than that. In more than 20 years as an advertising copywriter, he has written on everything from jumbo jets to synthetic corks, pizza to personal computers. He has worked in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and New York, garnering industry awards in each city. Currently, he is one of four partners at McFarland Richards and Graf, a Seattle advertising agency.

Review:

As the book, like a game, comes to a close in the eighth and ninth innings, time is spent with the concepts of forgiveness, redemption, the Promised Land and resurrection. From baseball we learn of the many resurrections that take place in our day-to-day lives. From the Bible we learn of the resurrection that took place that overcame death.
