The Broncos’ improbable run continues, after their dramatic win last night (sorry to my good friends who are Steelers fans), and so do the stories and comments on Tim Tebow.
Jon Meacham wrote in this week’s Time magazine about Tebow’s evangelical identity.
Check out this comparison of Tebow and Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger in The Washington Post (HT: Tim Neufeld).
And what do you think of this? Tebow threw for exactly 316 yards yesterday!
Once again, I think Tebow’s an exciting player to watch and seems like a great guy. But I do think it’s worth critically thinking through the questions he raises about the nature of Christian faith in the public square.
Here’s the thought I’m still trying to sort out: What is it about evangelicals and evangelicalism that resonates so strongly with a public figure who has success while maintaining evangelical identity?
