FaithWords Beyond Belief: Finding the Strength to Come Back

In 1999, Josh Hamilton was on the verge of phenomenal success. He had been signed by the Tampa Bay Devil Rays and was offered a $3.96 million signing bonus at the age of eighteen. However in 2001, following a major car accident, he began experimenting with drugs. From that time on, addiction overtook his life and he fell into a downward spiral of drug and alcohol use that lasted for four years, and resulted in his suspension from baseball.

But that wasn't the end of the story for Josh. In October of 2005 he hit rock bottom and called out to God for help. With God's grace, and an intervention of tough love from his grandmother, Hamilton has been sober since 2005. He worked his way back into Major League Baseball, and has played for the Texas Rangers since 2008. This paperback edition of Beyond Belief has been revised to include recent updates on Josh's recovery. Read this compelling story of redemption and see for yourself God's power to save.

Life story Josh Hamilton of the Texas Rangers. How he went from drugs, too the prodical son, too knowing God. Josh had everything going for him but I believe fame got to him and turned away.
Showing how Josh lived his life, just by recieving Christ in his life, God is merciful and just too accept a sinner like Josh.

I am a huge baseball fan...especially of my sons games! He & his best friend have played baseball together since age 8 (they are 21 now). Both in college. BF strayed from God and read this book and texted my son to tell him THIS book caused him to re-think he position on God. The boy said to me "Every living person should read this book . . Christian or not. It will change your life." He was right-I read it in 3 days. Enough said.

This book is a great story of one of today's best baseball players. He shares his testimony and shows how only Jesus can straighten out a life in trouble.
