Killing the Image: A Champion's Journey of Faith, Fighting, and Forgiveness

In this inspiring memoir, undefeated five-time world champion boxer Andre Ward -- aka 'Son of God' -- shares the gripping narrative of his unforgettable career, his rock-solid faith, and why boxing was never the biggest fight of his life.

Andre Ward was the undefeated light heavyweight boxing champion of the world when he walked away from the ring and did not look back. Now that he has taken off his gloves for the final time, the Olympic gold medalist is ready to share the heartbreaking and uplifting stories of his formative years and unprecedented boxing career. Motivational, faith-building, and utterly compelling, this memoir offers:

  • an inspiring story of overcoming a broken childhood
  • behind-the-scenes drama from Andre's epic championship bouts, complicated relationships with managers and promoters, and shocking decision to retire at the top of his game
  • insight into breaking destructive generational bonds, forgiving those who have hurt us, and moving toward hope
  • a challenge to live out our faith without compromise

Rich with colorful characters, fascinating detail, and biblical truths, this is the story of a man known for his integrity outside the ring, his warrior's instinct inside it, and his unrelenting bond with the God who called him to the greatest victory of all.
