With Opening Day just around the corner, Hollywood will release the movie 42, the legendary story of Jackie Robinson, the first African-American major league ball player. 42 chronicles Robinson's heroic struggles to break baseball's racial barrier.
What the movie doesn't really explore is Robinson's Christian faith, a little unknown part of his complex life. Also, un-divulged in the movie is that Branch Rickey (played by Harrison Ford), the Dodgers general manager who signed Robinson to a contract, was also a Christian.
While not a Christian movie, 42 will introduce newer generations to this man of great courage and integrity - " A True American Hero".
