Defending the Line

In this day and age, Christians do not have a big influence in society anymore. Just the other day, my brother told me about a cartoon he read. It was between Tim Tebow and another person interviewed by a reporter. Tim Tebow told the reporter that he was a Christian and the reporter waved his hands and said "I don't want to hear about that." 

The other person told the reporter that he just came out for the first time. The reporter leaned forward and said, "Tell me more about that." This proves that society is declining on our forefathers' beliefs.

I like how this book is related to everyday life. Children of all ages, especially those who have a passion in sports should be able to look up to the athletes. That's why this book is going to be a book whose presence will grace my classroom. 

Students should read about someone that has great character and is still famous even though their beliefs might be different. 

The story of David Luiz, 2010 player of the year and a rising star in international professional soccer, whose faith and success are inspiring to young athletes.
