House Majority Whip Steve Scalise has an inspirational memoir, "Back in the Game," due out in November, The New York Post reported. Word of the new book coincides with Thursday’s annual congressional charity game.

The 304-page book centers around the shooting last June in an attacker opened fire with a rifle on Republican lawmakers at a congressional baseball practice.

Scalise was critically wounded and had a long road to even partial recovery, themes that are touched on in his new book.

The Amazon listing for "Back in the Game" says the "tight, inspirational narrative includes a dramatic retelling of the shooting" while recounting the heroism of the emergency responders and the role Scalise's faith and prayer played in his recovery.

"He will share stories and experiences that illustrate the many miracles that occurred to keep him alive," the listing says, noting that the attack was politically motivated by an "unhinged person" and his "hate of the Republican party," which is "an issue that is explored in the book."

The shooter was identified as James T. Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old home inspector from Illinois who had several minor run-ins with the law in recent years and belonged to a Facebook group called "Terminate the Republican Party."

He died following a shootout with police.

Scalise returned to the baseball field a year after the shooting in preparation for the annual congressional charity game, which pits Republicans against Democrats and will be held at the Washington Nationals’ ball park.

"It was great to be on the ball field," he said in a tweet last week. "Can’t wait for @TheHillBaseball on June 14th!"
