Shaken Book Review

Shaken Tim Tebowby Sandy Kirby Quandt

In Shaken by Tim Tebow, the Heisman trophy winning quarterback for the University of Florida Gators and Denver Broncos, before being traded to the NY Jets, and also cut from the Eagles and Patriots, asks some important questions in his new book.

Whose are we? Who are we when life is steady? Who are we when storms come?

Don’t be confused. Shaken is not a biography nor is it a memoir. It is a book filled with hope amid disappointments that weaves both anecdotes and biblical truth together throughout the pages. Tim writes about people he has met who have overcome tremendous challenges. The key to overcoming was to understand that what God knows about us is more important than what others think about us.

God created us. We are his workmanship. He has a purpose and a plan for our life.

As Tim wrote about being cut from football teams and seeing his dream of quarterbacking an NFL team disappear, he asked what do we do when our world is shaken, our plans and dreams get obliterated, and the path we’re on moves in an unwanted direction. He suggests we do what he did before our world was shaken, and hold on to the truth of who God is and whose we are.

Near the end of his book Tim says, “Society doesn’t define what’s important in my life.” He goes on to add we should not limit what God can do in our lives based on how we limit ourselves.

Good advice.
