One of our pals, Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post, read the book. Here’s her review.

Not sure how many books he’ll sell here in Georgia, but they are flying off the shelves down in Gatorland.

I may hate,HATE the Gators! But the more I know about this kid it is hard to hate on him.Can’t believe I’m saying it,but actually the kid was a breath of fresh air compared to most College players today. I wish him nothing but the best!

Dawg fans will need the “books on CD” version (or on 8 tracks).

It is an awesome book by a great person. He is a great role model. Better than Scam-newton.

Tebow is an incredible athlete and fine young man. He loves the Lord. Don’t see how anyone could hate him but people do. Of course, the typical, obnoxious UGA fans never cease to amaze me.

Tim Tebow’s life story? I read it the first time….when it was called the Bible.

I love how Dawg fans beat on Tebow. They wish they had a kid with such great character on their team. Oh I’m probably wrong about that. St. Richt is a good man off the field , but he nothing but FSU/Miami on the field.

Jarvis, that is hilarious.

Yeah, I read what the reviewer wrote about the book. I do feel like his story has been told so many times. I have heard and read about his mother’s difficult pregnancy many times. I watch college football, so I know all about his football career.

My main gripe: you are 23! How much life have you really lived? Write a book after your long career in the nfl.

As a confirmed Alabama Reverse Atheist, I would never buy a book by a bible thumping over rated Republican QB who believes that the Football Jesus will give you victory on any given day in the NFL Paradise…

Responding to how someone wins Heisman Trophy without being ranked in Top 50—it is called Favor with God. Favor is not always fair but happy is he or she who receives it! I am so thankful God sometimes gives us things we not qualified for by the world’s standards. When it happens, it makes people scratch their heads in bewilderment! God is so faithful!

If Tebow thanks god and jesus for every success, does he blame them when he makes a mistake? And when he does thank jesus, do you suppose he is watching that game, and not a Little House on the Prarie marathon on ABC Family?

red is an idiot

Do your homework, Red. In 2007, Tebow was ranked #2 in QB rating, #23 in yards passing and #1 in touchdowns scored and touchdowns accounted for.

huh?

Enema, come on man. Grow up. He can thanks God and Jesus anytime he wants brother. I’m sure he blames himself, because guess what? He’s human :)

Can we get a blog dedicated to the Alabama Communist and Kim having a theology discussion? I’d subscribe.

Tebow needs some “favor” at Denver. Ain’t done squat yet. What happened to the QB that throws from his ankles??

Red, I guess throwing and rushing for a total of 55 TD’s that season was really stealing the Heisman. RIIIIGGHHHTTT

Tebow needs to pray more.

Only completed 50% of his passes for a whopping 82 pass effic rating.

Huge DAWG fan here – finished his book last night and loved it. Regardless of his sports affiliation, he is a remarkable young man of faith.

Give this kid some time. He will be fine in the NFL. His determined spirit will not let him fail.

We are in a sad state in this country as long as adults continue to follow the word of an ignorant home-schooled jock. Read a real book for tebow’s sake!

No, we’re not all Teebow haters, personally, I like the guy. He’s a winner, nice kid, intense. Its the constant media that blows everything he does out of proportion. Cant argue with the kid’s mindset. He’s driven. Not rushing off to get his book, but not going to sit hear and rail on him either. Anyone who says they’re glad he didnt go to their university is watching his own nose grow.

Seems like a sincere kid… Like he really believes all that Christian stuff. But I would not waste time on a book from him. Nothing that great to read about, unless you just love the guy.

Here’s the Cliff Notes:

I grew up in a Christian family with wholesome values and no temptation. I went to a good college and played football really well. It was tough to balance easy classes with practice, but my teachers didn’t care what I answered on tests! I won lots of football games, and got drafted to a pro team very quickly for a lot of money. One time, I went to where poor people live and told them about Jesus, and how if they prayed harder, they’d have more food. I also circumcised them, because I think the Bible says that somewhere. I’ve never had sex, but hope to once I’m married and win many more football games. The end.

The mistake was based in diction, not grammar. But let us not miss the point that this kid has no business writing an autobiography. If you feel the need to get self help from a 23 year old, more power to you, if not you probably aren’t looking to books for guidance.

USMC Dawg…. The journalist uses the word “sell ” in the correct context. “Sell” is the verb form of “sale” which is a noun. I am a HUGE Dawg fan and will probably read Tebow’s book.

He’s a good kid but his life is already an open book. What else is there to know about him that media and magazines haven’t already covered?
