The book will chronicle Lin’s high school, college and early career in the NBA with particular emphasis on the media explosion surrounding his success as starting point guard with the Knicks. It will explore how Jeremy’s Christian faith, family, education and cultural inheritance have contributed to his success. The book will also include interviews with basketball experts on Jeremy’s future in the NBA, Asian-American thought leaders on the role of race in Jeremy’s rise to stardom, and renowned Christian athletes and pastors on the potent combination of faith and sports.

    " I'm not a big fan of sports writing. Too many cliches and inside references make it hard for me to follow. But I was curious about Lin's backstory, and for that, this short book served its purpose. "

    " I really liked this book. It introduced me to an amazing talent and serious child of God. Jeremy Lin lives his faith and is an inspiration to young and old alike. The book was well-written by Dr. Timothy Dalrymple, himself a Christian and former top athlete. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michelle G. | 11/14/2012

    " The author said he wrote it in three weeks so don't expect thrilling prose. It gets the job done. I got the background I wanted about Lin and I started to think more about how brave he must be to always give the credit to God and his teammates before crediting himself. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 10/20/2012

    " This is really a story of an immigrant family whose patriarch discovered basketball in the 1970's, and a very strong Chinese-American Christian community which nurtured and guided Jeremy's character. "

    " Jeremy Lin is truely inspirational. I can see why people follow him and look up to him. I did not know that I learned about him in this book. The writer has a way of keeping you interested especially if you are a basketball fan. "
