The title with the addition of a ghost writer is very amusing, imo.

Shouldn't it just be black leather with a little white cross.

Marilyn Manson took that one.


Through my eyes and Nathan Whitaker's soft hands.

At least he didn't need a freaking entire Council of Nicea to decide what to put in and what to leave out.

I never thought I'd see the Council of Nicea uttered on the OM.

Not sure its such a good idea to write an autobiography before he's even a starting QB in the NFL?

This is where the marketing hype around Tebow and his religioIUS fervor get a bit ahead of themselves IMHO.

Love the kid and his attitude for the most part, but outside of college he is starting from scratch here and has yet to prove he's got it on the big stage before writing an autobiography.

Maybe his handlers advice to him was to strike while the iron is for sure hot and get the sales and build the mythology even more before the fact ... just in case his NFL career winds up a shadow of his college exploits.

I hope he becomes all world .. but just saying this strikes me as a mis-step on his part.

Would be a lot more authoritative and inspiring when written after a couple SB wins and a long glorious career in Orange and Blue.

In any event 'Go Tebow!' but now go out and prove it wasn't premature!

I don't have a problem with ghost writers. In cases like these, the writer spends a significant amount of time with the player and interviews them non-stop. Then he pulls out the major themes and organizes the things that the player said and transcribes them in a way that is fit for reading. The material is still coming from the player.

And it could be said that the writer is guided by God so whatever's in the book is literally true.

I find it emoish. And a bit disturbing. But then a guy of 26 or so who so far as I know has never had a real job or done anything beyond playing college football writing a book about life is .... a little bit disturbing.

Its so cool to come to Tebow threads to take sucker punches at Christianity.

That makes you supersmart and ubercool.

That guy has probably done more in his short life than you have over the entire span of yours.

You'd probably do well to take notes.

Sounds funny coming from the guy who entered this thread with judgmental statements against both Christianity and Tebow. Ha!

Judgment? You obviously dont even know what that word means. It works both ways, you know.

Curmudgeon.

Besides, in this "person"'s mind, it's somehow bashing Christianity to consider other people write autobiographies, such as say CS Lewis, or who write about life, like say Stephen Hawking or Greg Mortonson who have, DARE I SAY, a somewhat more extensive knowledge of the value and struggle in life. But dare anyone to suggest Epic climb down from his cross......
