I really liked this book mostly just because it was about sports. It also always kept me going because it was something I like to read about.

This book was about three college quarterbacks, Colt McCoy. Tim Tebow and Sam Bradford. All three of these quaterbacks made it to the NFL. The book basically tells the life story of each and how their faith played a role in their success.

Colt McCoy was always a really good athlete, even as a child. Even when he was starting to be recruited, he always thank

Overall, "Playing with Purpose" is a great book. The author, Mike Yorkey, makes the book very real, and seems to bring the reader inside the lives of these popular athletes. I would definitely recommend this book to Chistian athletes. In addition to the sports in these young mens' lives, it also shows how involved they are in Christian organizations. It shows how each of these athletes have a personal relationship with Christ. It really helped motivate me in my own relationship with Christ.

Rating: 5 stars. Great Book

I didn’t think that I would like the book, because it was about football. I don’t really like football all that much. The book was about three of 2010’s NFL draft picks. What set’s these three quarterback’s apart from the rest is their faith, their belief in Jesus Christ and God. The book focuses on Sam Bradford, Colt McCoy, and Tim Te

I think the concept for this book was really good but I don't think it was written well. It jumped around a lot and didn't seem to stay on topic too well. I also think it spent way too long on some topics and not enough on others. I would rte this book 3/5 overall because of the solid idea but poor writing.

I really wanted to like this book. I love football, and I liked the idea about reading about up and coming football stars who had strong beliefs, but I couldn't do it. I stopped reading about 25 pages in because I couldn't stand the writing any more. It reads like it was written by a high-school doing a report on these 3 guys - and it wouldn't have gotten a good grade.

I like the premise of the book: 3 guys who kept with their faith throughout high school, college, and the NFL. I read it solely for the story behind the athletes.
