Tim Tebow Turns to Children’s Books To Further Spread God’s Truth from Christian News Journal
Going back more than a decade, Tim Tebow has won a Heisman Trophy (2007), been a starting quarterback in the NFL Playoffs (2011 season) and played minor-league baseball in the New York Mets organization (2016-2019). Around his time on the field, the outspoken Christian athlete has found time to author multiple books which have landed on the New York Times Bestseller list.
Shortly after the calendar flipped to 2021, Tebow released his latest book. This time around, however, he’s looking to spread his Biblically-motivated message to a whole new audience, young children.
Bronco and Friends: A Party to Remember hit bookstore shelves on Jan. 5 and is geared toward the age 3-to-7 demographic. Tebow drew inspiration for his main character – a bespectacled brown canine named Bronco – from his own pet pooch. The story is co-authored by regular Tebow collaborator A.J. Gregory and the skillfully colorful illustrations were contributed by Jane Chapman.
The story begins by letting the reader know that Bronco struggles with his eyesight. Due to that, he questions his self-worth and whether he fits in well enough with his fellow animals to attend a big party they’ve planned. Many children should quickly relate to Bronco, as he really desires to do something but is tempted to allow a minor imperfection to stop him.
The story unfolds with Bronco discovering truths about himself and others that every child comes face-to-face with throughout their social, mental, and, hopefully, spiritual development.
So fun seeing Bronco & Friends for the first time! We are just 1 wk away from the release! I’m praying it is an encouragement to all parents and children who read it… I would be honored if you would check it out: https://t.co/rdUVoACUi3 pic.twitter.com/t2ocBATygb
