Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

After being cut by the Green Bay Packers during training camp in 1994, Kurt Warner found himself working the graveyard shift at the Hy-Vee grocery store in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and living with his girlfriend Brenda and her two children in the basement of her parents' house. Just over five years later, Kurt completed his journey from supermarket to Super Bowl when he led the St. Louis Rams to victory in Super Bowl XXXIV.

In All Things Possible, Warner tells the story of his life both on and off the field, and the faith that keeps him going through bad times (scraping up $1.95 in change to buy gas to make it home in freezing weather) and good times (being named Super Bowl MVP). As an outspoken Christian, Warner peppers his gridiron reminiscences with expressions of his beliefs. Indeed, he sees this book--and his success--as "a forum from which to share the values, lessons, and faith that made it all possible." Add this to his list of achievements. --M. Stein --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Back Cover

The amazing story of an NFL MVP quarterback’s journey from obscurity to the pinnacle of success

This is the courageous saga of Kurt Warner, a man who refused to relinquish his dream or his belief in God’s guiding hand and went on to become the winning quarterback and MVP of Super Bowl XXXIV in 1999.

More than just a thrilling sports story, this is also the intimate tale of how Kurt’s devotion to his family sustained him as he pursued his lifelong dream.

The hardcover edition sold over 100,000 copies, and the 2000 - 2001 pro football season shows that last year’s performance was not a fluke for Kurt and the St. Louis Rams. On December 14, 2000, Sports Illustrated honored Kurt as one of their six sportsmen of the year.


More About the Author

Kurt and Brenda Warner met when she was a divorced mother of two, living on food stamps and putting herself through nursing school, and he was a college student. Kurt and Brenda married in 1997 and Kurt adopted Brenda's two children. Since then, they have added 5 more children to their family. After graduating from Northern Iowa in 1994, Kurt was signed by the Green Bay Packers, but was cut during training camp. He returned to Northern Iowa to work as an assistant football coach, working the night shift at a local Hy-Vee grocery store to support Brenda and her two kids, until he was signed by the St. Louis Rams in 1998. Kurt went on to lead the Rams in two Super Bowls, winning two NFL MVP awards (in 1999 and 2000). In 2008, Kurt joined the Arizona Cardinals, and led the franchise to their first playoff appearance in 10 years, and their first Super Bowl appearance. Kurt and Brenda are strong Christians, and the founders of First Things First, a foundation that promotes Christian values, helping the less fortunate, and encouraging others to put faith and family first. They live in Phoenix, Arizona.

After reading this book, I truly do believe that all things are possible. Kurt Warner has a truly remarkable story to tell.
In All Things Possible, I knew the final outcome. Unless you live in a cave, eveyone knew that Kurt Warner had a super season, capped off with a Super Bowl victory, picking up the game's MVP award. However, this book did more than go behind the scenes of that incredible season. It introduced us to Kurt Warner, the person.
He has had one incredible life. In this book, he touches upon everything, from his personal life struggles to being cut by the Green Bay Packers and having to work at a supermarket. We also meet his family, including his wonderful wife, Brenda. His story is one of overcomming seemingly unbeatable odds. Warner was constantly having to battle serious problems that always seemed to be hurled at him at the most difficult times. He never gave up, and his faith in the higher power is one that should not be taken lightly.
In this book, Warner is incredibly candid and does not hold anything back. He is straightforward and always honest. He hides nothing, and that is what truly makes this book an inspirational and enjoyable read. The personal stories add feeling and sometimes humor to the wonderfully written account of him and his family.
All Things Possible has something for everybody, including a nice romance in the background. His marriage proposal still brings a smile to my face. Kurt Warner tells his interesting story in a straightforward, yet nicely detailed language that allows you to keep turning pages as fast as he racks up passing yards. This book is more than just another athlete's story. It serves as an inspiration to keep pursuing your dream, whatever that may be, by believing in yourself. Any, if not all, things are possible.

Format: Hardcover
An easy and enjoyable read; not a Hemmingway or Vonnegut by any stretch but it certainly tells a compelling story. I told people to draft Kurt Warner for their fantasy teams when he became the starter for the Rams because I had seen him play (in person) for the Iowa Barnstormers and his accuracy was unreal. I already knew a lot of his background but the book really examines in detail the hardships Kurt faced and the perserverance and faith he possessed on this wild ride. Simply put, Kurt Warner's story is a story for the ages and possibly the greatest underdog sports story of all time. What he did in 1999 and early 2000 is almost incomprehensible but he did it, and the NFL will never be the same. Plus, he is a genuinely nice guy. Sometimes nice guys do finish first.

Kurt Warner is an outspoken Christian, and not everyone appreciates that. However, this book demonstrates that faith in a higher power can lead someone to unimaginable heights.
As a St. Louis football fan, I remember the sinking feeling we all had when Trent Green was injured. I watched in amazement as our second-string quarterback not only rose to the occasion, but proved himself to be the best there ever was. I am proud that my city is the home of both Kurt and Mark McGwire.
In this era of the "National Felony League", Kurt Warner is a bona fide role model. Non-believers will scoff, but I say that part of God's plan was to put this talented man on top as a message. Anyone can be great, and without having to sacrifice character.

Format: Hardcover
Couldn't put this book down. From his youth team, to the Superbowl, Kurt describes how God had a plan. Even knowing that the Rams had won the superbowl, you want to keep turning the pages to find out what God has in store for him next. The book introduces you to Kurt Warner as a person, not just a football superstar. Honest testimony about how hard it is to stay focused during tests (being cut, frustration about not starting, surviving Amsterdam, hanging around Iowa with no clear football plan) in his life. It was entertaining and education to read about real world examples of Christianity in practice - on and off the field.

Format: Paperback
Anyone who's trying to succeed in any thing in life faces adversity and doubt. Even those people who are close to you seem to lose faith in goals that you're trying to achieve. Sometimes it's just you against the world. Kurt Warner describes how he turned rejection into triumph. Even when his dream seemed unattainable, Kurt took whatever positives he could squeeze out and used it as fuel for his fire. A fire that burns inside like a volcano. I haven't been motivated like this since Rocky. I can hardly wait for the movie.

Format: Hardcover
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I truly admire Kurt Warner conviction to his Faith, his family and perseverance. Kurt seems like a down to earth guy who has a strong support system. Kurt was given an opportunity and he took full advantage of it. In truth, this book is about an Every Day Guy who makes it to the Big Time and hasn't forgotten who he really is. Nothing out of the ordinary here, very easy to read.
