New York Times bestseller
Who are you when life is steady?
Who are you when storms come?
Most of us have been on the receiving end of rejection, a broken dream, or heartbreak. And while this is not an easy space to go through, when we are grounded in the truth, we can endure the tough times.
In this powerful book, Heisman Trophy winner Tim Tebow passionately shares glimpses of his journey staying grounded in the face of disappointment, criticism, and intense media scrutiny. Following an exceptional college football career with the Florida Gators and a promising playoff run with the Denver Broncos, Tebow was traded to the New York Jets. He was released after one season.
In Shaken, named the 2017 Christian Book of the Year, Tebow talks about what he’s learned along the way, building confidence in his identity in God, not the world. This moving book also features practical wisdom from Scripture and insights gained from others who have impacted Tebow in life-changing ways.
Though traveling hard roads is not easy, it’s always worth it!
Your Circumstances do not Define You,
Your Identity Does.
What do you do when life takes an unplanned detour? When the unexpected happens? When doubt or negativity tries to rise above your faith? Most of us can relate to these questions.
Through a dynamic lens of story and insight, Heisman trophy winner Tim Tebow tells what he’s learned during the highs and the lows of his journey in the NFL. Shaken also features practical wisdom from the pages of Scripture and moving narratives of individuals—from celebrities to cancer patients—who have impacted Tebow’s life. Their inspiring stories will encourage you also to tackle fear, overcome bitterness, and take on the obstacles life throws at you.
"God's got it" is the life-affirming slogan of Heisman Trophy winner Tebow, the football player remembered by many for his impassioned speeches, hybrid talents, and commitment to his faith he once stirred up controversy by writing Bible verses in his eye black. "Have faith," "trust God," "it's not so much who you are as whose you are," and "God has a plan" are among the encouragements that run through every chapter of this uplifting memoir. There's a lot to like here, including personal details that football fans and Christians alike will savor, as well as inspiring stories of ill and disabled children whom Tebow has helped through missions and his own charitable foundation. Critics might say it's easy for such a famous and successful person to have powerful confidence, but Tebow reminds readers that no one is immune to disappointment and doubt, and that success can bring its own burdens. Some may take issue with Tebow's simplistic affirmations of faith (including seeing God in coincidence); others will see them as the book's greatest strength. All readers will be won over by Tebow's dedication and perseverance, and admire him for staying true to service-oriented Christianity through a quite unconventional life.
