This is a great book! I enjoyed reading it. If you are a fan of Tim Tebow then I suggest you reading this!

Great book even for those who are not football fans. Tim Tebow, one of the great college players of all time, tells his story. Tim tells his story from being born in the Philippines to missionary parent (whose mother was told the pregnancy was too risky and that she must abort him), to his young years growing up, loving sports, being competitive. "My dad says that I wasn't much fun to throw with, even at age four. Apparently, even then I was a bit too intense and threw pretty hard," says Tebow on his early years. He also takes the story through his decision to play college football for the Florida gators, and his draft pick by the Denver Broncos, where he's now quarterback. Gives an inside view on his games. First sophomore to ever win the Heisman trophy, Tim is a humble, funny, excellent athlete. Also talks about his Christian faith, what it means to him, his upbringing, and how he started putting scripture references (book, chapter and verse) in his eye black while at Florida. Cool guy. Great story. Easy to read and understand the football stuff (lots of descriptions of his games) even for those who aren't familar with the game. Photos. Also available in large print, audibook, and e-book formats.

"The first verse that came to mind was one of my favorites, Philippians 4:13: 'I can do all things through Christ who strenthens me.' That was perfect to summarize my approach to football, and it seemed like a good verse to go with the first time out of the box. Paul's point is that Christ gives us the ability to be content with a little or a lot." --Tim, on the first time he wrote a verse onto the black under his eyes for a game.

"Father, if you want another preacher in this world, you give him to me. You give me Timmy, and I will raise him to be a preacher." Tim Tebo's Dad, before Tim was conceived.

Great book about keeping the faith through good times and bad times and staying focused so you don't lose your way or your self.

With the fame came people wondering about Tim Tebow and sometimes trying to tell his story without knowing him. So here, to set the record straight, is Tim's story through his own eyes. Written with Nathan Whitaker. Photos. Relaxed, interesting. For those who love football, and also for those who don't--but like a great true story.
