Home Run - A Give-a-way


 
HOME RUN  
Written by Travis Thrasher


 

I have a great book today based on the original movie HOME RUN set to release in theaters April 19! 
About the Book:
The story is centered around the life of Major League baseball player Cory Brand. After years of self indulgent behavior and reckless living, a DUI and team suspension land Cory back in the Oklahoma town where he started. Forced to coach the local Little League team and spend eight weeks in Celebrate Recovery©, the only twelve-step program in town, Cory must face the memories that contributed to his life becoming so destructive as well as honestly confront the love he left behind.

Home Run powerfully reminds us that no habit is beyond help, no one is beyond God’s reach when they are willing to surrender, and no hurt escapes God’s healing. “What Courageous was for fatherhood, and Fireproof for marriages, Home Run is for battling addictions, bad habits, and hang-ups. The inspiring and authentic message of Home Run is that freedom is possible.”
My Review:
I have a hard time reading fiction books anymore.  This book started out as a tough read.  I wasn't sure I could finish it.  The tough way Cory was treated by his father was hard to get through.  This book turned out to be a great story of redemption.  I definitely recommend it.
