So I figured maybe I could pick up a few jewels from this book. And I feel I did.
But to the interested reader, be aware that this book is heavy on Army speak, to the point that I think it would take the average reader some time to try and understand what he talks about. I thought his stories were humorous, but then again much of what he says I've done before. So just understand that and further understand it's STILL worth reading.
It's an excellent resource for any soldier who's struggling to find the application of God in his life. I came to a realization yesterday that I'm missing something and oddly enough this book appeared in my life the same evening (odd, huh?). Fortuitous as it was, I read it in a day and firmly believe he deals w/ real-life issues concerning combat, leadership, and most important, spirituality, which in turn makes for a very good, down-to-earth read.
Three stars for the subject it covers; casual, combat-disinterested readers may not enjoy (even though combat isn't the issue he's hinting at--it's really revelations LEARNED from it which is the pot of gold).
If you're compelled by anything I've said, check it out.
If you have felt touched by the stories of military personnel risking, and sometimes losing, their lives in Afghanistan and Iraq the last couple years, than you will be drawn to Holton's experiences in combat as well as God's touch on his life. But if you have not been touched YET by military stories, than check out Chuck's book to see what young men and women go through all the time to prepare to serve you and me.
I have read many of the best-selling Christian books out right now - books by John Eldredge, Lee Strobel, C.S. Lewis, Tim Lahaye, Louie Giglio, John Maxwell, Rick Warren, Max Lucado, and others - and Holton ranks right up there with them. The great thing about Holton's style is that it is so different -adding work experience and adventure into his constant message of God's sovereignty.
A More Elite Soldier is a must-have for all military men and women - active or retired. And in the light of the heavy combat in the Middle East, the book helps me identify better with one of our country's most under - rated servants - our military.
Although Holton's military theme is technical enough to wow the private or officer with his knowledge of weaponry and army lingo, his story is very personal.Read more ›
