Hugh Poland, author of Judson Press’ best seller Steal Away: Devotions for Baseball Fans returns with a highly anticipated follow up: INTENTIONAL WALK: More Devotions for Baseball Fans.

Mr. Poland has a wonderful knowledge of baseball, and he gives the game a whole new twist: What can be learned about Christian living from the sport of baseball? The answers to this question might surprise you!

This devotional offers:

> Parables from the great game of baseball that can inspire us to read God’s word and incorporate it into our lives
> Stories and statistics about players including Branch Rickey, Frank Pastore, Rube Waddel, and Ty Cobb, as well as many others.
> Chapters beginning with a short Scripture passage, a sidebar quote from a baseball player or coach, and a daily application

Although I enjoy baseball, I not what anyone would consider a fan of the sport, yet I enjoyed reading the baseball stories, and how they applied to Scripture and life. It was perfect for my own private devotional time in the morning, and sometimes I wanted to read more than one section.

The book is divided up into sections entitled “First”, “Second”, “Third”, and “Home”. The devotionals are also well titled for the sections they fit under. Don’t miss INTENTIONAL WALK: More Devotions for Baseball Fans. It is a book sure to delight Christian fans of all ages and will make a perfect gift. $14.00. 160 pages.
