In between shagging fly balls for the New York Mets minor league affiliate and lending his voice to college football coverage on ESPN and the SEC Network, Tim Tebow has found time to write his third book, Know Who You Are, Live Like It Matters: A Homeschooler’s Interactive Guide to Discovering Your True Identity, while winning a major book award.
On Tuesday, Tebow’s New York Times bestseller Shaken: Discovering Your True Identity in the Midst of Life’s Storms was named Christian book of the year by the Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA).
In his latest work, due out May 16, the 29-year-old athlete and philanthropist laments the trappings our image-obsessed culture.
“Nobody said your life would be easy,” a synopsis of the book reads. “And the older you get, the more difficult it seems to become. Deep down you may know your value as a person isn’t defined by wearing cool name-brand clothes, scoring points for a sports team, or even by having a huge number of social media followers. And you’re right! Your identity resides in something—in fact, Someone—much greater than anything this world can offer: The only identity worth having… is found in Jesus Christ!”
The book will offer 36 lessons, each rooted in a key scripture passage, to help homeschooled children discover their identity using Christian virtues as a foundation. The lessons are meant to help you “discover who you are—by learning more about whose you are.”
“I know being homeschooled may not be the easiest thing in the world, so I wanted to write a book just for you. I’d like to encourage you in your studies by offering some lessons I’ve learned in my personal journey, lessons I want you to be a part of,” writes Tebow in the introduction to Know Who You Are, Live Like It Matters. “I want this book to be about you: digging deep to find out who you are and what that means in real life.”
