5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By greg webb on January 16, 2004
Format: Paperback
No less authority on America than Jacques Barzun said, "Whoever wants to know the heart and mind of America had better learn baseball." You can apply the same thought to heaven. When you ask a bricklayer what he does, he says, "I lay brick"...an author, "I write...", or machine operator, "I work at a machine". But ask an athlete, "I play ball..." with the operative word here "PLAY". There will be an element of "play" in heaven, Novak demonstrates, and this element appeals to young and old alike. Toys become tools because there is something intrinsically joyful about play. Sport is a religion without a creed. I enjoyed this book, it provides value added for spectator and participant. Watching my boys play ball can be a reflective as well as vicarious experience. Novak brings a liveliness to any subject he writes about. Play ball!
