Press Release (ePRNews.com) - Batesville, AR - Mar 28, 2018 - Rev. Dr. Ken Folmsbee, a retired pastor, avid golfer, and former golf coach, has completed his new book, “Golfing with God: Life Lessons from the Game of Golf”: an absorbing book of golfing anecdotes, sporting tips, and biblical meditations that will delight both golfers and non-golfers alike.
Rev. Folmsbee shares, “Just as golfers make a valiant effort to avoid the hazards of the golf course, Christians must strive to avoid falling prey to the hazards of life. We should despise them even more than we despise the sand and water hazards of golf. The Apostle John admonishes his readers not to love the world or the things that it offers. Unlike hazards in golf, however, there is only risk and no reward when we find ourselves going in that direction. Golf course architects make masterful use of sand and water, and so it is with the things of this world. James warned his readers that when lust conceives, it gives birth to sin; and when sin is finished or runs its course, it leads only to death. How many times have we seen someone leading a golf tournament come to the seventy-second hole only to fall victim to a water hazard and ultimately lose the tournament?”
Published by Covenant Books of Murrells Inlet, South Carolina, Rev. Dr. Ken Folmsbee’s new book is not a sport book with a religious sheen over it—it is instead a religious devotional that uses as its illustrative focus the beloved, unpredictable game of golf, which all too often resembles life for the average Christian with its tricky terrain and myriad pitfalls.
Mastery and reflection on anything deeply enough will inevitably lead back to God. The author finds this the case with his favorite sport, which proves to be not just a fantastic pastime and a way to spend time with his four sons but also an ongoing object lesson through which God speaks to him of eternal truths.
Readers can purchase “Golfing with God: Life Lessons from the Game of Golf” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.
