Review: This is the Day

This is the Day by Tim Tebow
Reviewed by: Pam Graber
Genre: Christian Living
Publisher: Waterbrook/Multnomah
Publication Date: September 25, 2018

Tim Tebow’s latest book, This is the Day, asks readers to “Say Yes to your Dreams.” Best known for openly showing his faith on the playing field, Tebow drops what I call, “wisdom nuggets” throughout the book. Having previously read his book, Shaken, I kind of knew what to expect in this one and Tebow did not disappoint.

Each chapter title begins with “This is the Day” and ends with an action plan such as: Say I Love You, Get in the Game, Leave the Past Behind, Listen to the Right Voice. Some of the “wisdom nuggets” I mined included: “Without a powerful view of God and knowing what’s possible through Him, our capacity to thrive is completely diminished. When we begin to see God in a life-changing, miracle-making, revolutionary way, we can have the courage to take a step of faith.”
Also, “When you choose to live based on what God says and not what others say, you can live with confidence. You can live secure. You can live knowing He loves you, He cares for you, He has a plan for you, and He has a purpose for your life. You can trust God’s voice.”

Born in Manila, Philippines the son of missionaries, Tebow’s life experiences have been many and varied. I have been continually amazed by all of the things he’s done in his 31 years on Earth. His heart for people – and often for the people that no one else seems to care about – shines through in both his words and his deeds. While he first came to national attention by winning the Heisman Trophy in college, he freely admits that without God, his disappointment over his failed football career would have been far more devastating. The stories he tells to illustrate his points will touch hearts. I know they touched mine. I especially enjoyed the stories he told about his involvement with the Tim Tebow Foundation, and A Night to Shine.

It’s easy to see, as you read This is the Day, that Tebow believes and lives the words he says on page 83, “Whether we realize it or not, people are watching us. What we say and what we do matter. When we live with purpose, we can make a difference that can leave a lasting impact….What you do for others matters.”

I can absolutely recommend This is the Day to anyone looking to be challenged to step out of their comfort zone, and into the life they dream of living. Tebow’s conversational style is easy to read, and you don’t have to be a sports fan to enjoy reading his book!

Rated G: There are no worries here.
