“A Walk in Two Worlds: A Journey of Faith” from Christian Faith Publishing author Steven R. Smith is a stirring memoir of a life lived in two parallel worlds—between the intense commitment of professional sports and the challenges of maintaining a strong personal relationship with God—and the complications that arise when pursuing excellence in the material world pulls a person away from God, unless one’s mind, heart, and spirit are all trained in the way a body is trained to physical perfection.

“A Walk in Two Worlds: A Journey of Faith”: an emotionally complex memoir of a professional athlete’s walk with God. “A Walk in Two Worlds: A Journey of Faith” is the creation of published author Steven R. Smith, who is, among many things, a professional golfer and former champion bodybuilder, coach, fitness teacher, and mentor passionate about training not just the mind and body but also the spirit.

Smith shares the turning point in his professional and spiritual journey: “This was the most defining moment of my life. I saw this man, who was about fifty years old, have absolute terror in his eyes. So I backed off his window, but to my surprise and to my shame, there was a frail seventy-five-year-old woman sitting in the back seat. On her lap, she was clutching a five-year-old little girl. They were both shaking visibly and crying out loud. The man looked like he might drop dead right there.
At that moment, God’s inner spirit spoke to me loud and clear, ‘My son, look what you have become.’ To this day, I cannot tell that story without tearful shame and utter embarrassment at how I must have looked to these poor people. This happened in 1985 in Cerritos, California. If anyone ever hears this story and knows the people involved, I can only ask humbly for your forgiveness. Just know this; I’ve spent the last thirty-one years doing everything to let God lead my life.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Steven R. Smith’s new book is a stirring work that does not knock down the chase for perfection in professional, personal, and spiritual endeavors—rather it brings wisdom into the picture and redirects efforts toward what really matters.

Profoundly aware that without God, no earthly success means a thing, Smith compels the reader to seek truth and strive for excellence—with God before all else.
