Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the course of the last four years, Tim Tebow has established himself as one of the best quarterbacks in the history of college football. During that time he has amassed an unparalleled resume, winning two BCS national championships, becoming the first sophomore to win the Heisman trophy, and in the face of massive public scrutiny, being drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos-all while wearing his devout Christianity on his sleeve. Both on and off the field, he's shown himself to be a thoughtful and inspiring figure whose faith and character are evident in everything he does. Indeed, though still in college, he's been uniquely successful at using his celebrity to help others, raising hundreds of thousands of dollars to support charities and mission work in this country and around the world. In an age when our sports stars so rarely live up to their reputations and their responsibilities Tim Tebow does both. In this memoir, Tebow effectively combines his football story with his faith, showing people everywhere how his belief has led to his success on the field. From his birth in the Philippines to missionary parents to his home schooling to his historic run as the quarterback of one of college football's most storied programs, Tebow guides the reader through the highs and lows of his life, always reminding people of the role that God has played in his journey. More than a sports book, more than a book about faith, this memoir is a rare combination of humility, humanity, and honesty that offers a look inside a truly unique athlete whose skill is matched only by his belief. Publishing to coincide with Easter 2011, this engaging and evocative book will resonate whether the reader is a Christian, a football fan, or both, providing a football story unlike any other.

Synopsis:

Former University of Florida star quarterback, first round draft pick of the Denver Broncos, and devout Christian, Tim Tebow, tells the story of his faith, his life, and football. Written with Nathan Whitaker, a three-time New York Times bestselling coauthor (with Tony Dungy), this book will be the first look inside the mind of an athlete whose faith and ability have made him one of the most provocative figures in football.

About the Author

Tim Tebow is one of the most accomplished players in college football history. A two-time winner of the NCAA National Football Championship with the University of Florida, Tim is also the first-ever sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. He then went on to become a two-time winner of the Maxwell Award for the nation’s top football player, while also winning the Davey O’Brien Award for the nation’s best college quarterback and the James E. Sullivan Award for the most outstanding amateur athlete in any sport. He is the founder of the Tim Tebow Foundation which was started to bring faith, hope, and love to those needing a brighter day in the darkest hour of need, and in April 2010, Tim was selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Denver Broncos. He lives in Colorado.
