The lesson is ongoing in the novel as it is in life, and filled with wonder and faith in the face of obstacles.

A small town banker’s mission to play in the Masters becomes a reality as he shares a humorous and faith-filled story in “Walking with Herb: A Spiritual Golfing Journey to the Masters.”

Golf enthusiast, Joe Bullock wrote the book with a desire to help people live up to their full potential. Readers will follow along as God decides He is tired of watching people fail to live up to their potential. God chooses Joe Goodman to prove that people are far more capable than they believe.

Bullock’s book addresses golf as a microcosm of real life as Goodman is tasked to qualify to play in the Masters. God provides Goodman with Herb, a golf guru and spiritual guide, to help him along the way. As an experienced banker and life-long Christian, Bullock added contextual side bars about banking, faith, healing, and family matters.

“Over the years of my golfing adventures and misadventures, I had become convinced that God didn’t like golf at all, and didn’t appreciate me playing it,” said Emmy winning actor and producer Craig T. Nelson. “Mr. Bullock’s book adjusted my mistaken point of view. God loves me and is invested in what I am doing and how I am doing it. His love is constant, mine is sporadic.

“The lesson is ongoing in the novel as it is in life, and filled with wonder and faith in the face of obstacles. There is a ‘Herb’ out there for all of us, and Joe was fortunate to find him. I loved the book and like golf a little more.”
