Journalist and baseball lover Ed Henry reveals for the first time the backstory of faith that guided Jackie Robinson into not only the baseball record books but the annals of civil rights advancement as well. Through recently discovered sermons, interviews with Robinson's family and friends, and even an unpublished book by the player himself, Henry details a side of Jackie's humanity that few have taken the time to see.

A thoroughly interesting and enjoyable examination of all too human men and women and the strength their faith played in doing the right thing, struggling to achieve a shared goal of breaking the color barrier, and staying true without becoming bitter. It reveals new insights into Robinson and Brickey. You will not want to pause in listening.
