Publisher's Description

"Everything in life belongs to God. Our purpose has already been mapped out."

—David Luiz

One of the rising stars in international soccer, David Luiz has been impressing crowds since he was a boy. But it is his faith, not his fame, that drives him to greater success and keeps him "defending the goal." David made his debut in professional soccer as a left fullback when he was just 19. He was then picked up by Portugal’s Benfica team and named player of the year for the 2009-2010 season. As a star defender and vice-captain for the Brazilian National team, David shines both on and off the field, inspiring athletes around the world with his incredible soccer skills and his unwavering faith. David currently plays for England’s Chelsea Football Club, one of the premier club teams in the world, and he is expected to play for Brazil in the 2014 World Cup.

    My Review:

    This day in time, I'm sure it is hard to live out your faith--so publicly, at least. Especially when you are a celebrity. Brazilian soccer player, David Luiz, can relate to this better than anyone. David is a world renowned soccer player from Brazil that plays professionally. But while that is very important to him, his faith means so much more. The book shares the story of this very sweet young man that puts God first, but it also share with us the love of soccer that the people have. It even gives you a little bit of the history of soccer in that country.

    David came from meager beginnings, so its very touching to see this young man honor God in everything that he does. His faith is an encouragement to young and old alike. I am glad to see another celebrity living out there faith in front of my children, we need others that are just as courageous as he.

    **Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the publisher.

    Jonah loved reading Defending the Line The David Luiz Story. Jonah loves all things soccer. So, when this came along, I knew he would love it. And, of course, I was right.

    Jonah likes that his faith in God is prevalent and that he wears a certain shirt under his jersey for each game. David thanks God for his wins, and he even praises His name when he loses a game. He loves God on and off the field.

    David has a charity, named Acao Social David Luiz. It is an organization that provides food and special events.

    Jonah gives Defending the Line, The David Luiz Story 5 stars. Jonah says if you love soccer, you will love this book.

    In this day and age, Christians do not have a big influence in society anymore. Just the other day, my brother told me about a cartoon he read. It was between Tim Tebow and another person interviewed by a reporter. Tim Tebow told the reporter that he was a Christian and the reporter waved his hands and said "I don't want to hear about that."

    The other person told the reporter that he just came out for the first time. The reporter leaned forward and said, "Tell me more about that." This proves that society is declining on our forefathers' beliefs.

    I like how this book is related to everyday life. Children of all ages, especially those who have a passion in sports should be able to look up to the athletes. That's why this book is going to be a book whose presence will grace my classroom.

    Students should read about someone that has great character and is still famous even though their beliefs might be different.

    The story of David Luiz, 2010 player of the year and a rising star in international professional soccer, whose faith and success are inspiring to young athletes.

    For kids ages 8-12 and soccer fans of all ages comes the newest addition to the Zonderkidz biography series, Defending the Line: The David Luiz Story. One of the rising stars in international soccer, David Luiz made his debut in professional soccer as a teen and has since become a star player whose faith and success inspire athletes young and old around the world.

    As part of the Zonderkidz biography series, Defending the Line reveals the true story behind this sports celebrity, motivating young readers and giving parents, youth leaders, and librarians an inspirational new hero.
