Seal of God by Chad Williams was and is a fascinating read. I have a daughter in the Army Reserves and this book intrigued me when it came up to read. I was not disappointed in the least. I am so thankful for all the soldiers and how hard they work to keep our great country free. What made this such a good read was the honesty throughout the book.
Chad committed to completing the difficult training to become a Navy Seal after his mentor and training partner Scott Helvenston was brutally murdered in Iraq. The story delves into the journey as Chad trains for twenty five physically and mentally tough weeks of BUD/S training. You really appreciate and are amazed that these guys and their bodies can stand up to this extremely tough training. Only thirteen out of 173 guys made it to graduation, Scott goes on to serve on SEAL teams one and seven and was even ambushed by enemy gunners close to the same road that Scott Helvenston was killed five years earlier.
This book pulls no punches, Chad was not a Christian when he started this journey and was a real rebel who was mad at everyone and was never going to to need anyone but himself until......... He goes to a crusade with his parents to buy more time at their house and winds up convicted about his sin and ends up making a commitment to Christ.
Find out what happens next in his walk with Christ and how he handles his "new life in Christ".
Thanks to Tyndale Publishers for sending me this book for free just for my honest opinion-this was superb.
