Playing with Purpose: Mariano Rivera :  The Closer Who Got Saved

Series: Playing with Purpose  
Author: Jesse Florea Creative, Inc., Mike Yorkey 

He’s a Hall of Famer in every possible way—and Playing with Purpose: Mariano Rivera is an easy-to-read, color-illustrated biography of the baseball’s all-time saves leader. What’s really cool is that when his storied career with the New York Yankees ends, Mariano Rivera plans to save souls in the ministry! Part of Barbour’s exciting “Playing with Purpose” series, this account covers Mariano Rivera’s life from his earliest days in Panama to his multiple World Series appearances and titles (even the 1999 MVP award),  all the way through the 2012 Major League season. It’s a story of sports and faith for all ages.

 

  Review:   Mariano Rivera is a brief profile of a believer’s career and testimony in Major League Baseball. It is ideal for teenagers, young adults, and Yankees fans who want to learn about a Christian athlete at the top of his game. The book contains an explicit presentation of the gospel and would be an excellent tool to share with the non-Christian sports fan in your life. Ultimately, in an arena increasingly devoid of heroes, this book reminds us the greatest role models point to the One greater than themselves.
