Seal of God by Chad Williams and David Thomas is a must read for all! I had a hard time putting this book down and I highly recommend it to you. I could not put it down due to the amount of graphic detail about SEAL training and my awe for these young men who defend our freedom. More than that, I couldn’t put it down because I saw so much of what we each encounter in our walks with God through Chad and his life. We rebel, we fight back, we go down the wrong path, but God is always there to help us get back on the straight and narrow path.
If you think watching GI Jane or similar movies could show you what SEAL training is like, think again! Read this book and get a closer look at what our most elite fighting force really does go through to earn the reputation and the honor that they have.
If you are in the military, be ready to at times wonder why Chad shares some of the details about training and his team that de does in this book. You may even question if it is ok that he did. I know that I questioned some of his comments and some of the events that he shared about his time in the service. Please keep in mind that for him to truly share his testimony with the world, and for its impact to be real, we each needed to see what it is like to bare the cross that comes with following Jesus.
I received this book from Tyndale for review purposes and I am very glad that I had that opportunity. What an impact this book has made on me and will continue to make on others. Enjoy!
