When the highly esteemed Jesuit scholar and commentator on modern culture, Fr James V. Schall SJ, writes a positive review of a book by a professional athlete, I sit up and pay attention.  Earlier this month, Fr Schall wrote such a review on The Catholic Thing website.  His subject was John Stockton, former point guard for the NBA’s Utah Jazz, an NBA hall-of-famer, and a Gonzaga alumnus.  John recounts his life for us in Assisted: An Autobiography, which was published two months ago.  You can read Fr Schall’s article here.
