This Is the Day Author Tim Tebow Shares His Reading Recommendations

Tim Tebow is as celebrated for his faith and accessible wisdom as he is for his athletic career. A Heisman-winning quarterback turned baseball player, Tebow has lived a life defined by the Christian household his parents, former missionaries, raised him in.

In his latest book, This Is the Day: Reclaim Your Dream. Ignite Your Passion. Live Your Purpose., he takes his inspiration from the trials endured by so many of the people he has met throughout his career as a public figure. Tebow’s fans have admitted they’ve felt stuck, unable to pursue the best version of their lives. Jumping off from his conversations with fans, and infusing his narrative with stories from his own life, Tebow offers encouraging advice to anyone looking to kickstart their ambitions. And the B&N Exclusive edition comes with a special extra: a set of eight full color, tear-out photo cards of Tebow, each featuring one of his inspirational quotes. The author and athlete shared with B&N some of his favorite books. Here’s what he had to say about them.
