Seeing Beyond the Game

The president of New York University offers a love letter to America's most beloved sport and a tribute to its underlying spirituality.

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.

Baseball as a Road to God 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.

Structured like a game and filled with riveting accounts of baseball's most historic moments, Baseball as Road to God 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.
