“I learned that it is faith that decides whether something will happen or not.”
Toward The Goal by Jeremy V Jones is the story of the greatest football player in the world, Kaka. Kaka's life is a story of character, commitment, perseverance and faith.
At eight years old, Kaka already knew what he wanted to do in life: to play soccer and only soccer and he started playing in front of family and friends. But tragedy struck and when he suffered a crippling injury in a swimming pool accident, doctors told him he would never play again.
Through perseverance and faith, Kaka recovered and today he plays in front of thousands of fans every year. And as the 2007 FIFA World Player of the Year and winner of the Ballon d’Or, this midfielder for Real Madrid has become one of the most recognized faces in the sporting world. Toward The Goal by Jeremy V Jones is an inspirational story that proves that through perseverance and faith we can overcome adversity.
Toward The Goal by Jeremy V. Jones was published by Zondervan in March 2010 and is our 190th best seller. The ISBN for Toward The Goal is 9780310720034.

Readers praise for Jeremy V. Jones: Toward the Goal: The Kaká Story’
“…a great simple read about one of the greatest players in football history and certainly one of the best role models. When you think of such great players as George Best, Gazza and Maradona who all set the world alight on the field but were truly awful role models off it, it's great to see someone who has always taken his responsibility seriously as a person for young teens to aspire to as a player and as a person.” (other retailer's reader)
“I think that reading biographical books like this is so important for kids and they are growing and thinking about the future. Sometimes as we change, our bodies are not exactly what we want. Hearing stories like the Kaka story and others are so great to really inspire kids that anything is possible with Christ and perseverance.” (other retailer's reader)
