Jeremiah Strong: Based on the Inspiring True Story of a High School Football Star Tackled by Bone Cancer (Paperback)
Sixteen-year-old Jeremiah Thomas, all-star football player and MVP, had helped lead the Parkview Pacers to their first state title in twenty-one years. Now a new season of football is about to start, and his training has made him the strongest guy at Parkview.
Jeremiah's life revolves around faith, family, and football. He's handsome, strong, witty, a captain of the football team, and owner of a state championship ring. And to top it off, The Girl, his childhood crush, likes him. Friday Night Lights, the giant floodlights high above a football field, are shining on him. Jeremiah's life seems perfect.
Until the day he feels a marble under his skin.
When his minor sports injury turns out to be an aggressive bone cancer, Jeremiah's dreams are sidelined. College football, and a life of ministry like his dad, seem further away than ever. Things couldn't get worse.
Until they do.
Jeremiah has a 10 percent chance of surviving. While the game clock ticks down on his life, Jeremiah realizes life isn't about him. Life is about dying. And the greatest game he can win is won within.
To reach the end zone, Jeremiah will need a different kind of strength that can only come from God. As Jeremiah's strength is tested, his family shares his heartrending experiences on social media, inspiring the world to be "Jeremiah Strong."
