Eli-Greatness Begins Book
It was a classic showdown between Minnesota and Los Angeles in the Metrodome. No one could understand why we were in game seven of the World Series and Eli McBrien had not been seen since game one, when he struck out twenty-four batters in eight innings. Todd Rucket was up to bat. Against the LA pitching staff, he had been making all the pitchers look like rank amateurs. Henderson, LA's manager, walked out to the mound. Eli had been warming up gently through the last inning. His arm seemed a bit sore. But when the game was on the line, they were going to go with their twenty-year-old sensation. Young Eli McBrien has a secret ambition. This ambition is not to be the greatest pitcher ever to step on a baseball diamond (even though he is). It's not to make millions of dollars (even though he eventually does.) His secret ambition is developed by God the Father Himself as he guides Eli through his life. Every aspect of his life is pointed toward that secret ambition. Follow along on Eli's journey in Eli: Greatness Begins to see how the Father guides Eli McBrien through trials and triumphs on and off the diamond.
