Jason contacted me via a LinkedIn connection, asking for me to read and review his book. This is my sole opinion.
Jason Ladd is a Marine, a fighter pilot, and a Christian. He is a husband, a father, and an author. Once agnostic in his religious beliefs, he slowly and fully discovered the truth as he sees it now. ‘One of the Few’ is the story of finding that truth.
Part One is an awakening awareness of something else out there and Jason’s search for those questions. Using parallels between his military training and experiences alongside his continual quest for answers, he brings the reader along on his world journey.
One thing I particularly appreciated was the way Jason broke down the military terms, lingo and jargon for those like me with no military background. It made his points understandable, not lost.
The middle section was an intense Biblical study, again based on his thoughts and experiences, held alongside the scholars and critics of the Bible over the years. I could have easily took my highlighter and notepad to have citations to study for my own benefit. Part three was a full circle conclusion, returning to the original beginning of the story and Jason’s own summary of his years of searching.
I recommend this book for anyone with an interest in Marines and their fighter pilots and to absolutely anyone who desires to know why God created us. This book is insightful, thoughtful, studious and enlightening search for a correct, world view of Christianity.
