I thoroughly enjoyed reading Tim Tebow’s latest book, “This Is the Day.” Tim is an exceptional human being, which I already knew but was made more aware of through reading this book. Tim shares many stories that any sports fan will enjoy reading, but also stories about people who have touched his life in different ways. Tim goes out of his way to help in situations where most people will turn a blind eye. He shares his love for Jesus and his heart for people with special needs. In “This Is the D ...more

Excellent read. Don't wait for a special day to show other people the love of God. Don't wait for a specific reason to encourage others. This is the day. Author Tim Tebow shares personal examples of how he listens to the nudges God provides and how he follows through on those nudges. Also, he shares his feelings when he ignores those special messages. Encouraging and inspiring book. I received a copy of this book from the author and publisher. This is my personal opinion. No review was required. ...more

This was my first time reading one of Tebow's books and quite honestly, I wasn't sure what to expect. I have an advanced copy from the publisher, and was pleased by the ease and conversational way of writing. It was like taking a walk with him as he shared story after story, leading him to powerful moments of change and growth.

I felt compelled throughout each chapter to harness in to my own purpose. His obvious expression of love for God comes through in how he loves others, chooses to serve wi

I'm not really into sports, but I have known who Tim Tebow is for several years now, and have always been very impressed by his humility and genuine heart for God. I don't often read non-fiction and had never read anything by this author, but when I was given the opportunity to join the launch team for this book I felt a nudge from God to sign up! Needless to say, I listened to that nudge and I'm so glad I did because this book was EXACTLY what I needed to read at this point in my life! Speaking ...more

In "This Is The Day," Tim Tebow encourages readers to view each day as a gift from God to be used for his glory. He reminds us to step outside of our comfort zone and live in the moment, because we are not guaranteed tomorrow. Tebow shares personal stories and experiences that add to his message of living with purpose. Each chapter is based around something we can do to make this "the day" and includes Bible verses and stories to back up his ideas. Topics include saying "I love you," leaving the ...more

Imagine getting out of bed every day and living every day to the fullest. Tim Tebow encourages you and I to do just that in his new book, This is the Day.

Each of the twelve chapters in This is The Day invites readers to learn how to make the most of each day and, most importantly, to make the most of each day in living for God and loving others. He reminds readers to say "I Love You", leave the past behind, say yes, to live with open hands, and to make each day count, among other chapter topics.

I’ve been a sports fan my entire life. I’ve seen athletes come and go. I’ve seen well-respected athletes like Lance Armstrong disappoint their fans.  And I’ve seen athletes who have been misunderstood and misrepresented. But I cannot think of an athlete who has been more unfairly treated than Tim Tebow in recent years.

Tebow is a two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick, and Heisman Trophy winner. The Tim Tebow Foundation has encouraged and enriched countless lives and brought hope

One of my bookish goals this year is to read more NonFiction books and since I'm new to this genre, I decided to read books about something I'm really connected to. And that is Christianity. I think this is the fourth Christian Nonfiction I read this year and honestly, I'm enjoying reading them.

I didn't know Tim Tebow that much before reading this book. All I knew was he was an athlete and a Christian. After reading this though, I feel like I've met him face to face and that's exactly one of th

Review by my 16 year old son (he enjoyed this book):

This is the Day is a fun and inspirational read that will take you on an emotional, motivational journey that will leave you wanting to do today what you would’ve put off until ‘tomorrow’. Within these pages Tim Tebow shares some of his encouraging stories that made him who he was and is today. With each chapter he breaks down the main message he wants to convey and feeds it to the reader in a digestible format. After reading this book I feel,

This is the first book I’ve read by Tim Tebow. As a football fan, I certainly knew who Tim was. The description interested me, and I was excited to be chosen to be on the launch team with the publisher. Overall, this is an encouraging and heartfelt book written in a conversational manner. Tebow encourages the reader to stop putting off goals and dreams and become who God created them to be. This also includes being intentional in telling and showing love to others and focusing on the fa

Make today more than just a day, or some day. THIS is the day- the day for you to live the life that fits your passion, dreams and purpose. As a reviewer who learned so much from this book, I can tell you what’s inside the covers, but it’s up to you, dear reader, to decide how This day is going progress for you. As author Tim Tebow tells us, “Don’t numb out.”

Tim Tebow is well known in the sports and the faith world. The word I would use to describe him is committed. He gives 100% to his athletic

This is the Day by author and sports figure Tim Tebow is a wonderful book. It is filled with encouragement and inspirational words to uplift and motivate readers. In his book, Tim challenges readers to search for joy, whether little or big, every day. The Bible says. In Psalm 118:24 ”This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” The author is just explaining how to do exactly that. He challenge readers to put life to that scripture daily.

4.5 Stars Rounded Up

This is the Day by Tim Tebow is an encouragement to believers to carpe diem through Christ essentially. Urging Christians to analyze specific areas that they face everyday, Tebow takes such issues as insecurity, regret, selfishness, or even normalcy and charges readers to view their present through the eyes of God and His will and the Holy Spirit’s leading in everyday interactions.

While the first half of the book focuses on claiming your day, the remainder focuses on mak

This was such an interesting book. I had never read anything by him prior to joining the launch team for This is the Day, and only knew him by his reputation. He has such an authentic writing style, though, that after reading this book I felt like I had met him in person.

This book served a double purpose (to me, anyways) – one being to tell about Tebow’s experiences and testimony, and the other being to serve as a motivational book to inspire readers. I liked hearing about Tim’s life and how God

This truly is an inspiring book. If you need a kick in the pants to get you off your duff and working on something of import...this is totally the book for you.

When I signed up for the launch team, I’ll admit I did it for selfish reasons. I barely follow football but know enough to get me in trouble; I knew Tebow had started playing baseball, but I kinda felt like it was a Michael Jordan-ChiSox rehash. Low expectations on that front. I signed up for the launch team because I know Tebow’s a Chris

Cleanliness: Very Clean (Topics to consider: religion, semi-graphic injury, and death.)

This book is what I would consider an inspirational self-help religious autobiography. It's a fairly quick read packed with tons of motivational quotes, encouragement, stories of success, and even stories of failure.

Tim Tebow does not beat around the bush. This Is the Day is very straight-forward and touches on a lot of hard subjects.

This is the Day – encourages us to stop putting off our lives, our dreams, our goals, our enjoyment of being present; instead, Tim encourages us to embrace each day and live the life God intends for us to live. This book is easy to read and, while filled with lots of sports references [duh - ] that I didn’t quite understand, I found it to be very encouraging. I love that he shared Bible verses to remind us of what God says about us and that He has a plan, a purpose for our lives. Honestly, I kn ...more

To be totally honest, I have never read anything by Tim Tebow. I really didn't even know much about him other than that he was a Christian professional football player, so this was my first introduction to Tim and his own life and passion.

After reading This is the Day, I must say I am very impressed by Tim. He is a young man of great integrity and heart. He truly walks his talk in his every day life and I think that's high praise for any believer. Tim loves the Lord and seeks to serve him in eve

Funny. Inspiring. Forthright...a winner!

Tebow's This Is The Day takes off with an intro that quickly dives the reader into a place of solemn truth with an overall positive message and outlook. Tebow doesn't relent in dishing out stories of his personal life and experiences with the objective to mentor hope and faith in anyone so inclined to listen, so that This Is The Day rings true with a message that reverberates and resonates on a deeply personal level with anyone not satisfied with their c

Tim Tebow is such an inspirational writer. In this book he shares how he is able to apply his faith to his life and then he gives challenges to show ways that we can do this too.

He shares how he feels the same we do at times. He can feel categorized, or put-down, just like us, but by staying true to God and the faith He has given us we

Tebow wants his life to have meaning, to count for something good in the world. He could have squandered his professional football earnings but established the Tim Tebow Foundation instead. He takes an active part in making a difference for those in need.

This is the Day reads more like an inspirational memoir than Christian Living book.

It's in this section that I found the book speaking to me, more than in the personal life story section. There is a charge

I have read every single Tim Tebow book there is, and judging by how great this one is, I cannot wait for the next!! These books are a must-read! I completely agree with the “stepping out of your comfort zone” part of it. We have become a hiding society, content to stay within our comfort zone instead of seizing each and every day as a gift from God. I also appreciated how he tries to encourage us in the storms of life and to keep pursuing our dreams. I highly recommend this series. I hope you d ...more

Life isn't just about SOME day. It's about THIS day.

That's the theme of Tim Tebow's latest book, This Is The Day, in a nutshell. Motivational. Inspirational. Spiritual.

This Is The Day contains mostly stories as he pursues a professional baseball career with the New York Mets and his work with his foundation. So if you are looking for stories about his days at the University of Florida or in the NFL check out his previous books.

Another great book by Tim Tebow! This is the third one that I have read (Through My Eyes, Shaken, This is the Day) and in my opinion, the best one. "This is the day" was written during a period in Tim Tebow's life where he is at crossroads: continue down a familiar road or venture into a new territory. Tebow chooses to journey down the new territory not knowing how it will go.
