Tim Tebow to release new book, “This Is The Day”
with WaterBrook

Former NFL quarterback, Heisman Trophy winner, sports broadcaster, baseball player, and New York Times bestselling author Tim Tebow releases new book THIS IS THE DAY on September 25, 2018

Colorado Springs, Colorado (April 3, 2018) —Tim Tebow, one of America’s most beloved athletes, is set to author a follow-up to his New York Times best-seller Shaken with WaterBrook, an imprint of the Crown Publishing Group. THIS IS THE DAY: RECLAIM YOUR DREAM. IGNITE YOUR PASSION. LIVE YOUR PURPOSE, written with A.J. Gregory, is scheduled to publish September 25, 2018.

Written in Tebow’s upbeat, motivational style, THIS IS THE DAY inspires readers to stop postponing their dreams and start making them happen now because this is the day. The star athlete and media icon challenges readers to get off autopilot and not wait until tomorrow to do what God is calling them to do today. Whether someone needs to get healthy, change careers, or reach out to somebody in need, readers will find themselves ready to take action, starting now, in pursuing God’s purpose.

Tebow is living “This is the Day” in his pursuit of a professional baseball career, having signed with the New York Mets in 2016. The book combines personal stories from his professional baseball quest, as well as the heartache of learning that his father has Parkinson’s disease, and even offers a peek into a family vacation and insight into why the Tebows are so competitive.

Tebow’s hope for this new book is to awaken readers to think differently, live better, and dream bigger. “Imagine the morning alarm going off, and instead of groaning or slapping the snooze button, our minds, our hearts, and our souls were awakened to possibilities. Something better. Something more,” says Tebow. “Imagine waking up each day fueled by a whisper, ‘This is the day.’ Because life isn’t about one day. It’s about this day.”

Through Tebow’s personal examples and life coaching in THIS IS THE DAY, readers will be challenged to kick start a personal journey toward seizing their own opportunities and start really living.
