The Zobrist Family: Look What God Can Do by Tom Zobrist
Last Sunday afternoon, I read a wonderfully encouraging book written by Pastor Tom Zobrist of Liberty Bible Church. Last year, his son’s professional baseball success brought fame to the name “Zobrist” when Ben received the honor of MVP when the World Champion Chicago Cubs won the World Series. I had the privilege of interacting with the elder Zobrist just before the drama unfolded a year ago. His humble approach to his son’s early success on a team headed to the World Series after being a member of the 2015 World Champion Kansas City Royals caused me to reevaluate my approach with my own children. Pastor Zobrist simply lives his faith.
I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and was pleased to learn some more of the back story of one of my current baseball heroes. But the real treasure of the book is the revealing of the heart of a father. I do not want to spoil the story, so I just want to let you know that this is worth reading. The book does not focus on baseball; it is an official account of God’s powerful influence in a man’s life. You will see what God can do!
I give Zobrist’s book five stars. You can find out more information at:
