Product Description

One day Michael Oher will be among the most highly paid athletes in the National Football League. When we first meet him, he is one of thirteen children by a mother addicted to crack; he does not know his real name, his father, his birthday, or how to read or write. He takes up football, and school, after a rich, white, evangelical family plucks him from the streets. Then two great forces alter Oher: the family's love and the evolution of professional football itself into a game in which the quarterback must be protected at any cost. Our protagonist becomes the priceless package of size, speed, and agility necessary to guard the quarterback's greatest vulnerability: his blind side. This paperback edition contains a brand-new 2007 afterword.

    Certainly this is a book about football. As a Christian, I was very let down by the lack of evidence of Christ within this book. I was let down as this book and movie have been marketed as Christian and short of mentioning the name of the Christian school, the church the family attended and a couple of other slight mentions of something related to religion, I saw absolutely no praise, honor or thanks given to God. There was no reflection of Christ's goodness mentioned or shown. I was disturbed that Mr. Tuohy would "go looking for a loophole to exploit". That verbage alone is contrary to Christianity. The foul language was un-necessary. I wholeheartedly admire what the Tuohy family did for this young man. But to label this as a Christian book is a gross distortion.

    I enjoyed the movie much more than the book. I was wanting to know more about Michael Oher's life than about other football players.
