Book Review of
Centered by Jason Brown is a Christian memoir about an NFL player who gives it all up to start a farm that gives away food to those in need.
My favorite quote from this book was ” I wasn’t called to be successful. I was called to be faithful. I’m a farmer I plant the seeds, care for them as best I can, and let God do the rest. ” If only more of us would remember this.
Success is not what is important. Living for God is what matters.
Overall I liked this book. It was an easy read, but it was not the best written book. I also enjoyed the story, but did not always agree with Jason’s theology. However, Jason gave up his career and fortune to spend his life giving to others and that is admirable.
