Josh Hamilton, center fielder for the Texas Rangers is now battling the St. Louis Cardinals for the World Series crown. But not long ago, he was battling Satan for his never dying soul.
Alcohol and drugs became a noose around his neck, and the lights were going out for Josh. But the Lord Jesus visited and saved.
Nolan Ryan, president of the Rangers: “Josh is one of the most talented baseball players I”ve ever seen but his life experiences transcend baseball. His ability to be one of the best playes in The Game after all he’s been through is amazing–and inspiring for everyone who knows his story.”
It’s told in a book Hamilton penned with Tim Keown called Beyond Belief, Finding the Strength to Come Back. I recommend it as a moving and worthy read.
Here’s a personal testimony video that condenses his story.
