Come meet former Heisman recipient and NFL Pro Bowl wide receiver, Tim Brown, at the Billy Graham Library on Saturday, Jan. 24, at 1 p.m. Brown will sign copies of his new book, The Making of a Man.

Notre Dame’s Heisman Trophy winner in 1987, Tim Brown played 16 seasons for the Los Angeles and Oakland Raiders, earning nine Pro Bowl selections and setting team and league records. He has served as a television analyst for Fox Sports, NBC, ESPN, and Sirius XM Satellite radio, and devotes his time and efforts to numerous charitable causes.

Books will be available for purchase in Ruth’s Attic bookstore, or you may bring your own. Limit of two signed items per person (one item must be the book).


In anticipation of Tim Brown’s upcoming book signing, the Billy Graham Library Facebook page gave followers the opportunity to ask him a few questions. His answers are below. You can also read our recent story about his spiritual journey.


Who was your favorite Raider QB to play with? Steve Beuerlein and Jeff Hostetler.

Who did you look up to growing up and who did you go to when you had a problem? My father and big brother

What is your favorite Bible verse? And why? Psalm 37. The King James Version starts out by saying, “Fret not because of evil doers, neither be thy envious.” There’s a lot in between, but it also says, “The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord” and “Mark the perfect man and behold the upright, for the end of that man is peace.” There have been times when I have been passed over for gigs where the other guy was known to be—let’s just say—not doing his best spiritually! It bothered me a bit until I focused on this Scripture.

Any advice for a single mom raising a son? He’s a great kid and I never want to let him down. The only advice I would give is to find a man they he can look up to. I’m sure you are doing an incredible job, but at some point he needs to hear from a man. Otherwise there’s a good chance he will always look at men as foreign objects!

Have you ever consider coaching in the NFL?  Coaching is not on my radar right now.

How do you communicate with your spouse when it comes to different opinions on faith? Whenever we differ in our beliefs, we always allow the Bible to have the last word!
