Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established
college football and a top prospect in the NFL. During that time
he amassed an unparalleled resume—winning two BCS national
championships, becoming the first sophomore in NCAA history
to win the Heisman trophy, and in the face of massive public
scrutiny, being drafted in the first round of the NFL draft by
the Denver Broncos.
Now, in Through My Eyes, Tebow brings readers everywhere
an inspirational memoir about life as he chose to live it,
revealing how his faith and family values, combined with his
relentless will to succeed, have molded him into the person that
he is today. As the son of Christian missionaries, Tim Tebow
has a unique story to tell,from the circumstances of his birth, to
his home-schooled roots, to his record-setting collegiate football
career with the Florida Gators and everything else that took
place in between.
At every step, Tim Tebow's life has defied convention and
expectation. While aspects of his life have been well-
documented the stories have always been filtered through the
opinions and words of others. Through My Eyes is his
passionate, firsthand, never-before-told account of how it all
I am a member of GATOR NATION and that is why I picked
this book. However, even though I know a lot about the Tebow
legacy, I am buying more than football or the Gators; it is about
a young man with a passion for football and more importantly a
powerful believe in his faith.
Everything Tim does is based on his love for God through Jesus
Christ. This is what is most important in his life. He talks about
his mission trips to the Philippines, his work with sick children
and speaking in prisons. He has an outlook far beyond his years
and knows that he has to hand everything over to our Lord and
He will take care of us. There is a purpose for everything in life
and there is a reason why everything happens-good and bad.
God has a purpose for everyone, whether big or small.
For football fans, this book takes you through the Tebow years
in detail. The Heisman trophy, his relationship with his parents
and with Urban Meyer. How he became a leader and the
training he puts in to being the best he can possibly be.
The book only briefly touches on the Denver Broncos, but Tim
has yet to leave his mark there. I firmly believe there is a lot
more to come from this very centered young man. Even if you
are not a Gator, please read this book; it is an example of a
truly good-hearted young man that will inspire you. (Oh
yeah--GO GATORS!) *****__jessie2
Through My Eyes is the most important book to come out
since The Purpose Drive Life. Now I know why people admire
Tim Tebow so much, consider for example his ability to make
other players better. Tony Dungy alluded to that quality in his
endorsement. He is a positive role model for young people and
that also came out in the documentary that E.S.P.N. did on him
as well. Any organization he plays for, or any position he holds,
he will leave in better condition than he found it and the team
will grow stronger. He is a leader in every sense of the word.
Strength and faith are two important themes to his life and
overall this is the strongest statement of faith from a high
profile athlete. This book has the potential of furthering the
cause of foreign missions as well, keeping in mind the work that
his family does in the Philippines. Despite all the second
guessing and criticism he still managed to rise above it; he is
smart enough to consider the source.
Read it along with the new Albert Pujols book. Forget about the
e-book, the hardcover edition comes with a bonus on the inside
of the jacket. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Tebow, for in
addition to helping the Pro-Life Movement you also have a
million dollar family. *****__David A. Baker
