Know thyself. You’re made in God’s image, destined to follow Him and do the works He prepared for you. American sports icon, Tim Tebow, knows firsthand what it means to strive for excellence, strip everything that impedes to reach the goal. In Know Who You Are. Live Like It Matters, he guides his readers in four parts with nine lessons each. You’ll learn about the source of your identity, Jesus Christ. You’ll uncover guidance when troubles come your way. Relationships are important. You’ll understand why. And last, but not least, you’ll learn why and how to live in a way that impacts eternity.
The book is not meant to read in a single session. It’s better to devote a weekly slot to one lesson, write your thoughts about the questions at the end of each chapter so that the message can sink in and you’ll have time to reflect and practice in between reading time. Where the ebook format should support in-book note taking by clicking on large yellow callout shapes, it didn’t work in my Kindle (.mobi) version of the book.
The readability is good, suitable for teenagers and young adults as an introduction to the life as a Christian. Tim Tebow illustrates the lessons from the Bible with his personal experiences from past and present, as well as popular stories about American sportsmen and presidents, inventors and preachers. Although the book starts with a positive testimony on homeschooling, you’ll find nothing about this education method in the remainder, which is at odds with the first part of the subtitle A Homeschooler’s Interactive Guide to Discovering Your True Identity.
