Know Who You Are: Live Like It Matters
By Tim Tebow with A.J. Gregory (WaterBrook)
Readers will recognize sports icon Tim Tebow as Heisman Trophy-winning football player at the University of Florida, former NFL quarterback and now an outfielder with the New York Mets. Tebow shares his heartfelt journey of loving Christ, no matter the cost.
Tebow’s message, “The only identity worth having—is found in Jesus Christ,” is seen throughout the pages of Know Who You Are: Live Like It Matters. As he shares his successes and failures, readers are drawn into the events of his life. Tebow journeys back to his childhood and introduces his parents, emphasis the significance of family.
This book is intended to speak to the heart of homeschoolers. Even so, being more than 60 years old and stepping out of my comfort zone with a new adventure, I was encouraged and reminded identity is from Christ and not from this world.
The author guides readers through 36 lessons. Each begins with a Bible verse and concludes with the opportunity to journal thoughts, feelings and opinions. The interactive guide is set up in four parts with nine lessons each.
It is a great resource for discovering or confirming our identity in Christ. In a world searching for significance, readers are reminded our identity is from Christ and Christ alone.
CSB Study Bible
Edited by Edwin A. Blum and Trevin Wax (B&H Publishing Group)
Think of the CSB Study Bible, featuring Holman’s Christian Standard Bible translation and extensive notes, as a multi-purpose encyclopedia.
This Bible includes study notes, maps, charts, word studies, illustrations and photos. It also has introductions to the books of the Bible, timelines and essays on major biblical and theological issues. Finally, it includes a concordance to the Christian Standard Bible.
One note to readers: The font for the scripture is 9.5. The peach-notes on each page are a bit smaller.
Because it has so many helpful features, this hardcover Bible is very thick and heavy. It is designed for personal study at home or in an office. It’s not the kind of Bible most worshippers would carry with them to church. However, as a resource Bible, it has it all.
