Product Description

From the Author

This book is about God, Golf, and Life - exciting stuff!
In His Grip was just a file folder of ideas about the parallels between life and golf and faith until clinical depression left me at home unable to work or play golf. I used the time and tragedy in my life to begin writing the book. It is 67 one page thoughts about these parallels with scripture verses from the Bible for each page. The incredible design and photography from Koechel-Peterson Design have made this one of the most beautiful books you will find, especially if you love the game of golf. All of this has made it a popular gift book. Most people who get it as a gift have to have more copies for their friends and want to get on our mailing list. The book has sold nearly 200,000 copies and has been a great encouragement to men and women, young and old. I love to hear the stories of how it has changed lives and helped people enjoy golf. Several small groups have begun using the book and our study guide for study together. My thanks go to the co-author and golf pro Wally Armstrong and to Billy Graham and Tom Lehman who contributed so much to the success of the book. My address is at the back of that book and our second one, Playing the Game. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

By A Customer on 28 Jun. 1999
Format: Hardcover
In His Grip provides a clever and insightful analogy between professional golf and the Christian walk. The authors are careful not to take the golf aspect too seriously and in each single page thought always close with a Biblical perpsective on the point they are making. The book focuses a lot on Tom Lehman who undoubtedly has the credentials both as a Christian and as a professional golfer.
It's an easy book to read and is perfect for the nightstand. The way it's laid out you can read one page at a time and reflect upon the point being made; or you can read 50 pages.

Excellent book. I purchased for a friend who had concerns about his wishes to follow a professional tennis career and how it would detract from his walk with the Lord. I felt Tom Lehman, the author, could provide my friend some insight on how the Lord can be glorified by our participation in sports by giving the glory to Him.
