Soul Full of Heart: Rated Raw Version

by Claude Ball

Claude Ball grew up on the famous Detroit, Michigan street known as 8 Mile Road, but his childhood marred by years of suffering, trauma and adversities. Poor, sexually molested by a trusted relative, removed from his mother and grandmother’s care and placed in the foster care system, life for young Claude was bleak.
As a teenager, Claude turned to self-destructive behaviors. He indulged heavily in drugs and alcohol which led to depression, sexual promiscuity and a series of other poor choices. Darkness and hopelessness hovered over his future like a destructive storm cloud. He lost nearly everything he owned, including himself.
Out of the smoldering ashes of destitution, Claude found the courage to rise up and turn his life around. He joined the U.S. Navy and began his search for fulfillment, which included a complementing life partner. It was during this time that, by the grace of God, a spark was ignited within Claude’s soul that enkindled a blossoming relationship with The King of the Universe – Christ Jesus! That flame continues to burn brightly today, helping to guide others from their dark experiences and into the light of recovery.
SOUL Full of HEART is Claude Ball’s story, taking readers on a dynamic and suspenseful journey that shares the powerful message of mercy and forgiveness leading to hope, peace, love and joy. It is an inspirational story. One that demonstrates how light carries us through the darkest times and how love conquers all.

A legend in his own right, his story is one persistence and hard work in order to achieve great things. When you learn Pete Maravich’s story, it comes as no surprise why he was one of the youngest players to ever be inducted into the Hall of Fame. In 1996, he was named one of the fifty greatest players in NBA history due to his remarkable creativity on the court. In this book, we’ll learn his story.

An excerpt from the book:

The NBA game today has become a spectacle filled with players with the flashy style and theatrics that wow millions of fans worldwide. Plays such as the behind-the-back dribble, the no-look pass, the between-the-legs dribble, and many other flashy moves are all crowd favorites. But basketball fans today forget the fact that there was one player who exclusively made the stylish brand of basketball his trademark on the court. That basketball legend went by the name of Pete Maravich, better known as “Pistol Pete” because of his penchant for shooting the basketball from the side like an old Western cowboy would shoot his revolver from the side.

We’ve all seen so many players do the flashiest of moves on the court that it’s not a novelty in the NBA anymore. No-look passes have been the trademark moves of Magic Johnson, Steve Nash, and Chris Paul. They did it at such a high level that they were among the best point guards or their generations. Furthermore, the behind-the-back pass is such a staple for Stephen Curry and Ricky Rubio that they do it at least once or twice a game. While those kinds of plays are always a joy to see, they are no longer a rare spectacle in the NBA. But in Pete Maravich’s days, he was the only guy who performed these flashy moves on the court. Pistol Pete became a crowd favorite and people flocked night in and night out to see his moves. He was probably the first basketball great to â??bring the playground and freewheeling moves to the NBA and he was a pioneer of today’s brand of basketball. Plus, he always played with great flowing hair that became his trademark do on the floor.
