One of America's most heralded young divers, David Boudia twice went for Olympic gold, training obsessively and whole-heartedly for success. In his first Olympics, he failed miserably, not winning a single medal. Four years later saw a different story: he mounted the podium twice, winning both gold and bronze. The difference? In the intervening years, he'd changed the focus of his quest from seeking glory for himself to giving glory to God. In Greater Than Gold, Boudia provides a behind-the-scenes access to the rarefied world of world-class athletics while also showing readers that when they place their hope in God, they receive what they've been seeking all along.

I watched David Boudia and Steele Johnson at the Rio Olympics, and I was impressed by their witness for Christ. Placing second in the synchronized diving competition, they afterwards spoke about their identities being in Christ, and the fact that it didn't matter what place they got because of that. I was equally impressed with this autobiography. David Boudia tells it like it is. He makes no effort to hide his flaws, but is honest about his smoking problem and other things. His story is inspiring, especially in light of his performance at Rio.

This is the autobiography of David Boudia, a professional diver who has won several Olympic medals, notably gold in 10m platform in London and silver in 10m synchro in Rio. He tells his story of how God redeemed him from the life he was leading and blessed him in ways he didn't expect.
