"If you're a fan of the shallow, fawning dreck that is 'typical' Christian sportswriting, stay far, far away from this book. This thing is the real deal - rough, gritty, honest and full of the glorious redemptive grace of Jesus Christ. In honestly sharing what he's been through and put others through, Bill truly gives God the glory...and as Pete Axthelm proved in 'The City Game,' there's pretty much nothing cooler than streetball in New York City." - Ted Kluck, author of "Facing Tyson: Fifteen Fighters, Fifteen Stories"; "Dallas and the Spitfire: An Old Car, An Ex-Con, and An Unlikely Friendship"; and "The Reason for Sports"
I knew Bill Rieser as "White Jesus" on the Basketball courts of New York City but it's our frienship and shared Chrisitan brotherhood are what I'm eternally grateful for. His story is real and it will help those you know the key to really having a great vertical leap. Keep looking up and God bless!!!
