Linsanity?

What is LINSANITY!?  Jeremy Lin, New York Knicks most recent addition as starting point guard, scored 38 points against Kobe Bryant and the Lakers recently – Jeremy Lin put aside his record-setting scoring to hand out a career-best 13 assists, and the New York Knicks got back to .500 with their seventh-straight victory, 100-85 over the Sacramento Kings on Wednesday night.
 
Despite the Linsanity, the Knicks' newest point guard insists that he is only trying to glorify God with his skills on the court.
Check out his underdog story: Lin was undrafted by the NBA. His hometown team, the Golden State Warriors, wouldn't play him and eventually cut him.
It took a rash of injuries and total desperation to get Lin into the Knicks' lineup.  Until the past two weeks, Jeremy Lin was entirely unwanted by the NBA, and before that, major college basketball had little interest in him.
Lin would one day like to be a pastor who can head up non-profit organizations, either home or abroad.  He has also talked of working in inner-city communities to help with underprivileged children.
"I'm thinking about how can I trust God more. How can I surrender more? How can I bring him more glory," Lin said in a Mercury News report. "It's a fight. But it's one I'm going to keep fighting."  "There is so much temptation to hold on to my career even more now," Lin admitted.

Most of the books on your list are secular in their values. Probably the greatest children's book - for age 8-80... is IN SEARCH OF PERLAS GRANDES. Teachers who have used it for read-aloud from 4th Grade to 8th Grade respond that it is the most attention-holding book they have ever used in the classroom. Mesmerizing for adults as well. No contradiction to Christian values either.
