Over the course of the last five years, Tim Tebow established himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in the history of 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, 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, 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 really happened.

At the age of 23, Tim Tebow already has an impressive list of accomplishments: first round NFL draft pick in 2010, winner of two NCAA National Football Championships, and the first-ever sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. Through My Eyes provides a rare glimpse into what drives this extraordinary athlete – his parents, Christian missionaries, that instilled faith and family values that lead Tebow to create the Tim Tebow Foundation. An inspiring read for both Christians and football fans!read more

Yes, I actually listened to Tim Tebow's book. I'm not a huge football fan and, let me tell you, he thinks about football A LOT. He recaps pretty much every college game he ever played in. At times this was tedious, but his personality is such I did genuinely want him to do well. I really enjoyed some of his family stories (the one about his dog almost being beaten to death is one I will never forget) and about how he lives out his faith. Tebow is the real deal in that regard and learning more about his background and his passion to help children was inspiring. Read this one if you have any interest in inspiring Christian leaders. He may not be a preacher, as his parents dreamed, but God has certainly given him an incredible platform--and I look forward to seeing what God has in store for him in the future.read more

As a Gainesville native, I have grown up watching Florida football and enjoying the ups and downs of that devotion.To say that the addition of Tim Tebow to the Gator roster in 2006 was a thrill is an understatement. As a mother of two boys and having a household very focused on sports, it was refreshing for them to have an athletic role model that wasn't in some scandal or controversy. He is not only a great athlete, but a devout Christian who walks the walk, which is quite rare these days. Is he a polarizing figure? Yes. You either love him or you hate him. However, he remains steadfast to his values and keeps his focus despite all the worldly pressures of fame. Whether he succeeds in the NFL is not the big question. Tim Tebow will be successful at whatever he undertakes in life. He is destined for great things and is already a power for good. Having said all that, I have to say I loved the book! I have heard about the circumstances of his birth through interviews and articles, but enjoyed learning more details about his family and the trial of their faith during that time. I gained a lot of respect for Tim's mother and what she went through physically to have him, and beyond his birth. It was wonderful to relive the Tebow years at Florida. I enjoyed seeing his experiences, his thoughts, his motivations, and his drive and intensity. Just reading about his workouts exhausted me. I have found myself laughing out loud many times and being in tears at others.It is a very heartfelt memoir that gives you a glimpse into Tim's thoughts and beliefs, and all the things that matter most to him: family, friends, and being an instrument in God's hands. I highly recommend it to anyone!read more

Well, it’s Sunday, and there’s no football. The Superbowl is over. Desperately clinging to another passion (NFL football) and hoping to excuse it as religious reading, I picked up Tim Tebow’s book. Tim, the latest God-fearing sports sensation.Don’t let me fool you: This is a football book, not a book about religion. More than anything else, you’ll be reading about Tebow’s football experiences, including his remarkable college career. Tebow’s success in football boils down to one thing: an obsessive drive. He simply cannot slack off. “When we think we can do less than our best, when we think others are not watching, we’re cheating ourselves and the God who created us.” But it’s more than wanting to do right by God. Tebow just can’t accept losing. His mantra: “Somewhere he is out there, training while I am not. One day, when we meet, he will win.”Here’s the deal: Much as I wince at athletes who praise God after every touchdown, I wound up really liking this Tebow fella! Yes, Tim feels the need to evangelize, given the special opportunity he has been given in life, but his religion is grounded. He may print Bible verses under his eyes when he plays, hoping for a camera close-up, but he doesn’t consider himself God’s answer to the world. A couple typical Tebow quotes:“I know it sounds dumb to be praying over a football game … I’m not sure God is into who wins or loses .. But since my parents raised me to pray about anything that’s on my heart, I pray—even if some of those things are trivial in the overall scheme of things.”“People often seem to think that when you’re following the Lord and trying to do His will, your path will always be clear, the decisions smooth and easy, and life will be lived happily ever after and all that. Sometimes that may be true, but I’ve found that more often, it’s not. The muddled decisions still seem muddled, bad things still happen to believers, and great things can happen to nonbelievers.”Yeah, the season is over, and Tim Tebow, the unlikely master of miraculous comebacks, couldn’t pull a rabbit out of the hat when it really mattered this year. His faith in God notwithstanding, we now head into the off-season wondering if he’ll even remain the Anointed One in Denver. Tebow never lost his trust in God, but has he lost the trust of his coaching staff?As Tim says, “I don’t know what my future holds, but I do know who holds my future.”
