PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Tim Tebow was a sports and media phenomenon as he leaped from college football to the pros, and a new book looks at the philosophy behind the fame.

“I’m just very thankful for the platform God has given me,” says Tebow.

Tim Tebow has mixed faith and football since before he exploded on the national scene.

In Tebow Time, author Jesse Hines explores Tebow’s world view in a hundred topics and quotes, including what push him to excel.

Of course, Tebow was traded and is not a starter this year, so is there another guy with abundant on-field religion ready to grab the spotlight for better or worse.

“Robert Griffin III has only played two professional games. Tebow had a full season last year, and the playoffs, so he had more attention on him, but I do think, if Griffin, who right now looks to be a better quarterback than Tebow, if Griffin continues to play well and continues to do that on the field, we’ll see more attention drawn to that,” Hines says.

Hines calls his book an unauthorized fan’s guide.
