    praying in the end-zone thing he does. But I suppose you're right, it's our moron press that says that, not Tim. he's a marginally good player, I'll give him that.

      on this point, theologically. I think it would be that Tim Tebow is praying to God not to make him win the game, but for assistance in being the best person that he can be, in doing the best that he can. God does want him to be the best person that he can, but he wants the same for everyone, so he wouldn't care who wins that game, only that everyone plays the best that they can, and therefore it's a great game! See, God, like all of us, just wants to see a good game!

      Well, I don't know that there are books written about that, but definitely about God's role in the world, and the function of prayer in that.
