Cultural Issue

The book addresses whether or not religion plays a role in professional sports or other sports. It makes you wonder if that you believe in something, nothing is going to stop you in achieveing that goal. Whether it is to go to college, or play a professional sport.

Rating

On a scale of 1-5 I would rate this book a 4. The book was very interesting and I learned a lot about Tim's life. I learned what his journey was like in becoming a professional football player, and how he has donated some of his time to help others who are not as fortunate. Though some parts of the book lagged in excitement, its was a good book to read and enjoy.
