Jackie Robinson’s faith was integral to his success. But you wouldn’t know it from watching ’42.’
via Jackie Robinson a man of faith by Eric Metaxas
Before you go to watch the newly released movie “42” about the life of Jackie Robinson, you need to click on the link above to read this review. Eric Metaxas is the author of the review and one of Christianity’s bright minds.
Metaxas takes Hollywood to task for omitting the core of the story. That would be the faith of both Jackie Robinson and the man who signed him for the Brooklyn Dodgers, Branch Rickey.
I love how Metaxas employes baseball imagery to get his point across. He also places this omission of faith in the wider context of Hollywood and movie goers.
