Review: A Warrior's Faith by Robert Vera

Saturday, June 20, 2015

Synopsis:
The exhilarating life story of the Navy SEAL whose relentless faith transformed his life and inspired others long after his tragic death. Highly decorated Navy SEAL Ryan Job mastered the grueling SEAL training program not by physical aptitude, but by an unstoppable sense of humor, positive attitude, and fierce determination. In A Warrior's Faith Job's close friend, Robert Vera, recounts how these traits helped Job survive after being shot in the face by an enemy sniper on a roof in Ramadi, Iraq. Though blinded, the irrepressible Job recovered from his wounds and began facing a new set of obstacles with his characteristic humor and resolve. He married the girl of his dreams, graduated college with honors, influenced countless people around him, and was looking forward to being a father--before his life was tragically cut short by a hospital medical error. Vera's stirring account of his friend's life redeems the tragedy by offering a picture for all readers of finding peace and happiness in the middle of life's raging storms.



My Review:
I have always thought warriors stories were so interesting. Getting to read about somebody going through things we only ever hear about on TV. I love hearing about what they go through and the things they have to do and how each and every day they are out there risking their lives to protect their country. I tend to stay away from non-fiction books but I decided to give this one a chance.

This a  biography that  is written by Ryan’s good friend who is also his training partner, Robert Vera. It is written in a no-bs way, but at the same time, drawing parallels between Ryan’s life, and the book of Job from the Bible. In this book, he shows how despite losing his sight, Ryan's faith continued to grow stronger and he faced his new life with a very good attitude. 

I thought this was a very well written, insightful book. To be honest, I think I will stick to my fiction books but this was something nice and different.
