“I was given a dream of being elevated above reproach inside of Major League Baseball, ministering Abba’s grace and faith…”

In the world of Major League Baseball, Wendell E Magee Jr enjoyed plenty of success, first as an outfielder for the Philadelphia Phillies and then as a center fielder for the Detroit Tigers. But in his own book, “Set the Captives Free,” Magee shares something far more spiritual. Combining a unique form of Christian poetry embedded with countless Bible verse references, Magee talks about how all the happenings of his life were the fruits of his faith journey.

Magee’s “Set the Captives Free” served as quite an interesting read for curious visitors at this year’s LibLearnX, where the book was recently exhibited. In it, he reveals that his dream of landing in the Major League was a form of spiritual vision he’s had since he was born. And despite a lot of setbacks in high school as well as during his professional career, he had seen this vision fulfilled.

The book presents itself as his way of giving back to God with all the verses serving as a veiled testimony of his faith. Several passages explore his spiritual transformation as a new creation in Christ while also calling readers to join him in praise. Many pages also explore the promises of being saved, tying several Biblical prophecies of the past to the way they are being fulfilled for believers in the present.

It’s not every day that readers see the sides of sports superstars through their books. And for those curious about the different forms of Christian worship poetry, Magee’s verses are worth the look.

“Set the Captives Free” by Wendell E Magee Jr is available on Barnes & Noble and Amazon.
