During eight seasons of major league baseball, pitcher Dave Dravecky learned more than the importance of getting ahead in the count or wasting a pitch when he had the batter in the hole with an 0-2 count. Baseball taught him lessons he could apply to his life and his relationship with God. That’s what Called Up is about.In this fast-moving and compelling book, Dravecky retells classic baseball stories and introduces readers to some of baseball’s greatest players—and characters. Taking you inside the game, his insights will prompt you to think. You’ll actually feel the tension, for instance, as you relive the final three outs in Sandy Koufax’s electrifying no-hitter against the Chicago Cubs in 1965. And as you consider the huge odds Koufax faced, you’ll be encouraged about your own performance in this pressure-cooker world. In life, unlike baseball, no one pitches a no-hitter—and thanks to God’s grace, you don’t have to. Filled with well-researched stories and spiritual insights, along with hilarious quotes from the players, Called Up also tells you about:• Branch Rickey’s secret ambition to integrate Major League baseball• how Jackie Robinson’s faith sustained him in 1947, the year he broke the color barrier • why freezing Ted Williams’ body so he can one day be resurrected doesn’t make sense• the wit, wisdom, and spiritual truths behind Yogi Berra’s sayings • Dravecky’s all-time, all-century, best-ever All-Star team• the challenges Dravecky faced living out his Christian faith in front of his teammatesGod doesn’t waste any pitches when it comes to teaching you about life from the game of baseball. You’ll love the breezy stories, the quick applications, the timeless thoughts and funny quotes in Called Up. Are you ready for the first pitch? Good—because the umpire is yelling, “Play ball!”

At the outbreak of war, the government short-sightedly allowed thousands of miners to enlist in the armed services. By 1943 the war effort was in danger of grinding to a halt because of a lack of coal. In answer, Minister of Labour Ernest Bevin sought service volunteers, and compulsorily sent 20,000 18-year-olds—who had expected to fight for their country—down the mines with them. Some were so angry that they preferred to go to prison, though the majority went to do their best. But some were psychologically or physically unsuited to such dangerous and arduous work. Many were injured; some died. This study paints a picture not just of the arduous life below ground but as the Bevin Boys found it in the tightly-knit mining communities, which in some cases welcomed them but in others treated them with hostility. This is an enthralling oral and social history of an episode of the Second World War that has never been fully told.

On this earth, one may dare familiar and unfamiliar paths. But beyond the human plane of reckoning, a few may dare to thread, such a path is that which this book aims to convey its reader to. On earth you can only imagine what may transpire after death, you may guess and assume; the more you do, the more complex the hereafter becomes. This complexity has been brought close to you, from the encounter of a wayfarer, a wanderer that wandered on the path of life to a supposedly lost eternity, but mercy intervened. He goes to eternity, and returned with some heart rendering narrations, from some highly bizarre encounter, with fiends and friends. He journeyed from several realms, planets and encountered creatures that were beyond description and incomprehensible to the human makeup. He moved farther and encountered the creator of the wilderness (earth), who gave orders that he should embark on this tour that eventually landed him in hell. You would be gripped with fear, when you read of the encounter of those in hell (the damned souls); you would meet the devil and his emissaries - and get some tough secrets forced out of them by the Creator of the Universe. Mercy took this young man to hades, the throne of mercy and then returned him back to us - earth. When he returned back to earth with his findings, what happened? How was he taken? What were the acceptance and rejections he encountered? You are just pages away, from a life changing encounter, one that would question all you have known of life and eternity. And you must answer the query thereafter; when the roll is called up yonder, would you be there?
