The reviews and authors differ:
- Ted’s review is old (September 20, 2011); Daniel’s is new (posted today). But rereading Ted’s review today in light of what has happened since September is especially interesting.
- Ted is a professional sports writer; Daniel doesn’t really follow sports. (Daniel is a good friend; we’re in the same small group in our church.)
- Ted almost got the job to help write Tebow’s book; Daniel just read the book recently out of curiosity.
But both reviews are critical and thoughtful.
While not necessarily disagreeing with them, my general perspective is more positive and less cynical. Tebow’s mission field is massive, and I thank God that—win or lose—Tebow is shrewdly stewarding his influence.
