U.S. Marine fighter pilot Jason Ladd shares the compelling story of his life and Christian world-view in this 2016 Indie Book Award Finalist.
Part memoir (he is the son of a combat veteran, husband to Karry and father of five, a spiritual seeker), part action adventure story (military dependent living in the California desert, Florida, North Carolina and Japan, Navy Flight School graduate, Iraqi veteran, man on a mission), part textbook on comparing Christian traditions and beliefs, One of the Few is an highly informative and deeply thoughtful account of one man’s transformative and very personal journey.
Jason uses Dwight D. Eisenhower’s Code of Conduct for Members of the United States Armed Forces as a model for just living when faced with the enemy. The Code of Conduct he quickly reminds us is built upon principles which are contained in the Bible. (see Code of the US Fighting Force, Chapter 25 Never Surrender)
“If you allow Christ to change you from the inside out, everything becomes new. You will lead better, and you will love better – your spouse, your children, and your brothers and sister both in and out of Christ. You will not be deceived, and you will receive the power to ‘fight the good fight, holding on to faith and a good conscience.” (I Timothy 1:18-19).
“If you seek God, you will find him. If you seek truth, you will not be deceived. If you remain ready to defend your faith, you will fulfill one of God’s commandments, help Christians better understand their own faith, assist with the soul-saving work of God, (and) counter the negative image of Christianity in the media and culture….” Jason B. Ladder.
