The parent company of Zondervan, HarperCollins, announced
that it plans to publish next year the inspirational memoir of outspoken
Christian athlete Tim Tebow, the e-newsletter Christian Retailing Update
reported Monday.

Slated for release on April 19, Through My Eyes will
tell the story of how Tebow, who is considered one of the greatest college
football players of all time, was able to fulfill his dream.

“I hope it can inspire people of all ages that are aspiring
to fulfill their dreams. I look forward to taking readers inside my life, both
on and off the field,” said Tebow, the 2007 Heisman Trophy winner,
two-time national champion quarterback at the University of Florida and a rookie with the
Denver Broncos.

Lisa Sharkey, senior vice president and director of creative
development for HarperCollins, who acquired the book, said Tebow “has
inspired a generation of fans with his accomplishments on the football field as
well as his devout faith and family values.”

Tebow attributes his core values to his parents, who were
missionaries when he was growing up, beginning with their faith in God. “We
really wanted to pass on our value system to teach them about their heritage,
not only as a family, but as Christians,” Tebow’s mother, Pam Tebow, told Charisma
in 2008 when the magazine profiled the then-college quarterback in a major feature
story
.


HarperOne Senior Vice President and Publisher Mark Tauber
added: “Tebow’s story is one that will find a wide audience for years to
come.”

Through My Eyes will be co-written by Nathan
Whitaker, who worked alongside former NFL coach and NBC’s Football Night in
America analyst Tony Dungy on his three New York Times best-sellers—The
Mentor Leader
, Uncommon and Quiet Strength, all from
Tyndale House Publishers.

With nearly 1.2 million copies sold, Quiet Strength—released
in August 2007—has become one of the best-selling, sports-related titles in
history.
