Baseball As a Road to God : <div><b>The president of New York University offers a love letter to America&#8217;s most beloved sport and a tribute to its underlying spirituality.</b><br /> &nbsp;<br /> For more than a decade, John Sexton has taught a wildly popular New York University course about two seemingly very different things: religion and baseball. Yet Sexton argues that one is actually a pathway to the other.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> <i>Baseball as a Road to God</i> is about touching that something that lies beyond logical understanding. Sexton illuminates the surprisingly large number of mutual concepts shared between baseball and religion: faith, doubt, conversion, miracles, and even sacredness among many others.<br /> &nbsp;<br /> Structured like a game and filled with riveting accounts of baseball&#8217;s most historic moments, <i>Baseball as Road to God</i> will enthrall baseball fans whatever their religious beliefs may be. In thought-provoking, beautifully rendered prose, Sexton elegantly demonstrates that baseball is more than a game, or even a national pastime: It can be a road to enlightenment.</div>
