From the Back Cover

TO KNOW CHRIST AND MAKE HIM KNOWN. From his youth as a liar, gambler, and pool shark to manhood as an indefatigable witness for his Lord Jesus Christ, Dawson Trotman revolutionized the practice of evangelism and founded one of the most widespread and respected Christian organizations in the world today. What moved and motivated this extraordinary man of God? In Daws, you’ll experience the convictions and passions that guided Trotman’s life: his deep love of God’s Word, his lifelong dedication to prayer, and his determination to live out the Great Commission. This moving historical account, drawn from the memories of those whose lives he touched and from the author’s firsthand knowledge, will both encourage you in your faith and inspire you to action.

About the Author

By the time he reached twenty-five years of age, Eddie Hilburn had lived in a small town, a rural area, a mid-sized city, and an urban area--providing plenty of material for this book. He still finds himself at home on a ranch, at the corner drug store, or downing cups of coffee at Starbucks. Eddie and his family set down their roots in Frankston, Texas, where he pastors First Baptist Church.

Format: Paperback
Betty Skinner has written a wonderful, thought provoking book about a true giant of modern Christianity - Dawson Trotman, founder and driving force of the Navigators. From his early days as a rebel and "bad boy" through his conversion and the development of his heart for others to his untimely death saving another person's life, this book challenged me to see in people great potential, but more importantly, to see in myself a call to disciple others - to help others move closer to God in their everyday life. It left me unsettled...but excited to get down to basics - pouring my life into others!

Format: Paperback
Dawson Trotman provides an example of what God can do with consistent commitment, purposeful passion, and relentless perseverance. His simple message--profoundly reflected in this book--that memory of and meditation upon Scripture will be a catalyst to a life of significance and service in the Kingdom of God. This commitment led me to reflect more than once throughout the book that all that Daws accomplished was without many of the advantages of today (the Internet, modern communication, etc.). And yet, my conclusion is that his commitment, passion and perseverance led to his significance and that the present day is so lacking in such individuals in large part because of the distractions that come with our heightened advantages. We are but children in the use of such tools. It is like 16-year-olds being given high performance sports cars with nowhere of note to travel. This book has been a major wake-up call for me to take note of the simple message that God's Word is worthy of great personal sacrifice and obedience.

Format: Paperback
Reading Daws opened my eyes to one of the major purposes in God's plan for the life of his people - to reach others with his love. Daws is an extremely well written biography that takes you inside Dawson Trotman's life and experience, but also takes you into his thoughts, showing you how he changed over a lifetime to understand the mission which had captured his heart - to know God and make Him known.
Towards the end, the book grows too focused on events on not on Daws' life, but it is otherwise an impacting, convicting, and inspirational read. A very worthwhile biography for anyone seeking to know God and make Him known.

3 of 5 people found the following review helpful By logosapiens VINE VOICE on November 27, 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is an accurate and thorough history of the beginning of the Navigators military parachurch ministry during the Great Depression. I know this book is accurate because of my own experiences fellowshipping with the Navigators for ten years while in the military.

The book begins with a young Dawson eager to witness about Christ, meeting with a group of sailors behind a TEXACO station.An article in Collier's magazine featuring the ministry in 1941 created rapid growth and recognition with eventual incorporation. As the ministry grew, Dawson moved into a large house instead of gas stations. Daws was concerned about the lack of a credible ministry to the Navy when he met an old Christian petty officer who repeated basic verses over again endlessly. Dawson, however, was never in the military. It was during this period that Daws developed the concept of "key men."

The book describes Dawson amazing ability to memorize verses which was later to became the Topical Memory System. The cards used today are in fact the same size as the inner pocket of a Navy jacket used at that time. The rigor of the memory system speaks well for the ministry ands is important for spiritual growth. I had them all memorized at one time and regret not keeping up with the system. The Topical Memory System unfortunately was followed often in the military Bible studies I was acquainted with but has since slipped into disuse in some NAV Bible studies.

Dawson's personal shortcomings are not skirted in this book. His insistence on stacking his cards on a certain color of shelf paper and his browbeating of a young sailor for misquoting John 3:16 in public are mentioned. The book focuses on Dawson and mentions very little about the modern organization which is Dawson's spiritual heir.

I first was introduced to the Navigators ministry when I was in the Navy in the 70s. I read this book wen it came out and it touched my heart how God used this man with his many weaknesses to accomplish great things. I always remember the story of how God used this man to start what is now a global ministry.

This is a book that every Christian should read. It took me a while to read it because I was constantly taking notes and going to the Navigators website. Their website has such great time tested resources!!
