The Making of a Man by Tim Brown, former NFL player for the Oakland Raiders, is a wonderfully scripted book with enough football facts to be of interest to me, a so-so NFL fan.
Tim Brown had ample opportunity to hook-up with many women, many drugs, and much alcohol. It appears that his Faith in God steered him away from all of this and into family life, a sound marriage, and a lengthy career.
Even if you're not a professional football player (and most of us are not) the book sheds light on this world from a Christian perspective and Tim Brown could serve as an example for young people looking for guidance.
The numbers that Tim Brown put up player will someday put him in the football Hall of Fame, but he feels that the number of people he leads to God's Kingdom will be a far greater accomplishment.
