Overview

The Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow is a phenomenon unlike any other in sports today. While his entire career, from high school forward, has invited scrutiny, since the fall of 2011, a Tebow Mystique has descended upon the country, with round-the-clock reports, new pop culture trends, and a feverish debate about whether Tebow has what it takes to become one of the greatest players of all time--or whether he can play at all.

The Tebow Mystique has two main features: Tim Tebow's unprecedented popularity, and his uncanny on-the-field performance. Because both are charged by religious fervor, some see the phenomenon as just another moment in America's ongoing culture war. They imply that it's mostly right-wingers who love the man, while sophisticated secularists loathe him. But the Tebow Mystique is not primarily about cultural conflict. It's about God. And it's about football. And it's best understood by taking a closer look at what those two phenomena–-those two gods–have to do with one another.
