Reviews

Birdies, Bogeys, and Life Lessons from the Game of Golf is filled with entertaining and informative stories about golf legends as well as many entertaining stories about Os's own golf life, which began when he was eleven years old. But the most unique part of the book is how Os brings spiritual lessons from the stories of golfers to stories in the Bible, sharing the analogies that can often be found between the game of golf and our spiritual lives. In fact, ever since I met Jesus at the University of Florida in 1968, I have used these golf metaphors to relate the game of golf to living a life of faith. Os provides us with thoughtful questions at the end of each day's devotional to get us thinking about the message. From the Foreword by Wally Armstrong PGA professional Coauthor of The Mulligan Author of Practicing the Presence of Jesus Arnold Palmer said, "The road to success is always under construction." Os gets that and uses warmth, wit, and grit in this unique devotional. The analogies between golf and life make for an interesting read and quick understanding of the life lessons. We all want to score high on the scorecard that counts, God's scorecard. Like the hybrid club widely used in the PGA, this book is both a gift to those who receive it and a tool for the reader to use in life and relationships. --Dr. Jay Strack, founder, Student Leadership University Over the many years of knowing Os, playing many rounds of golf together, participating in small groups, and reading his devotionals, I was excited to see this new devotional about golf. I learned so much about the household names in golf. Os provides insightful stories of their lives and then brings spiritual parallels that we can apply in our own lives. If you love golf, you'll enjoy how Os brings to life the spiritual applications that can be derived from the game of golf. --Dan Van Horn, founder and CEO, US Kids Golf Once you begin reading Birdies, Bogeys, and Life Lessons from the Game of Golf, it's hard to stop. I couldn't tear myself away until I read five or six. I know that golfers, and many others, are going to love it. --Richard C. McElroy III, AWMA(R), JD In his devotionals, Os has an amazing way of connecting real life with everyday faith. Although I'm not a golfer, I'm encouraged, inspired, and informed by these Scripture-based insights. We all have a legacy to leave, and these lessons from golf motivate me to embrace and pursue God's hopes for my life, unhindered by setbacks, uncertainties, and fears of failure. I'm inspired to get back out there and take another swing! --Dr. David Ferguson, CEO, Relational Values Alliance
