Through My Eyes
By: Tim Tebow and Nathan Whitaker Genre: Sports
I think that the essential question that my book Through My Eyes answers is how does American literature shape or reflect society. This means how does the book or the person in this book change society for the better or worse, or how does it reflect society in how they live. I think that this book reflects society as in it is a true story on a real American family and the day-to-day struggles they deal with. It shows you the in depth details of what happens in their lives. It isn’t the fake lives you see on TV. The Tebow family was a modern family who you can relate to. The Tebows lived in a nice house but it wasn’t too big. It was a family that reflected the middle class. It reflected that this is a family that people should strive to be like.
It also shapes society. In the book Tim shows you that you can do anything you want to do in life and not to let anyone bring you down because you control your own destiny. It also shaped society in it got more people to be serious about their religion. One game while he was at Florida he wore John 3:16 on his eye black. After the game John 3:16 was the most searched term for the next 2 days. This was huge for him because he shaped society into being more faithful in their religion. Another example of it shaping society was that society started becoming more open minded about doing everything in the name of God. Not only just being nice to your neighbor and not stealing, but starting striving to become a better person not only for yourself but to serve God and know that he is the reason you are on this earth. It gave people a reason to live. This book shaped society also because it really gave people the hope that everything will get better and you should never give up. Tim Tebow touched many people and changed their lives and I think that this book changed many peoples lives in how they live today.
