Throughout this book we caught glimpses of Jason's life as a Marine.
He presents a compelling defense of the Christian faith.
In One of the Few you will find a book divided into three sections, 27 chapters. 297 pages long.
Life lessons through real life stories with strong encouragement to consider what your faith means. Lessons that delve into the nature of God, who he is. Lessons about how we show what's important to us.
There is much about One of the Few that I appreciated. I read almost half way through before I started to lose interest. And I'm sorry, because I really wanted to like the entire book. I really liked the first half of this book, seriously. It made me think and ponder, rejoice over lessons learned and his coming to faith.
I wanted a book about a man of faith, who lived his life by that faith, and interspersed wisdom within those stories. This is how the book started for me. As the book progressed I found that wisdom taking time away from the stories that showed his faith in action. So instead of having a book about his life with wisdom interspersed, I started to find a book about how to live the Christian life (non-fiction based) with stories inbetween and it started to feel more preachy and less life-lived. And that is NOT a bad thing, but just not where I am at right now.
Right now I wanted the encouragement of a life lived in faith, not a "this is what you should be mindful of" book.
There is SO much to learn from Jason Ladd and I will be keeping this book and I will be sharing it with others, and in time I will complete and I will write a different review. But my headspace isn't where it needs to be right now for this book.
