One of the Few By Jason Ladd

Jason B. Ladd grows up in a military family with loving parents but spends his young life filled with spiritual apathy.

Ladd enters the US Marine Corps, becomes a fighter pilot, and sees combat in Iraq before life events align to nudge him into profound spiritual inquiry. Digging deep into his quest for truth, he realizes the art and science of fighter pilot fundamentals can help him on his journey.

Filled with stories that contrast his spiritual apathy with his post-Christian worldview passion, One of the Few is the compelling life story of a spiritual seeker engaged in a thrilling profession combined with a strong, reasonable defense of Christianity.

One Of The Few is surprisingly a good read. Ladd is a US Marine and an Iraq war veteran. He writes about his journey coming to know Christ as a young man to his adult life as a Christian. he draws comparisons between his life as a marine and his life as a Christian. At the beginning of every chapter there is two quotes. One from a non-believer and then a quote from scripture. The Scripture from the Bible contradicts the non-believers quote. There are questions that he asks as a child about God in the beginning of the book. You don't find the answers to the questions until later in the book. I really enjoyed reading about his strong faith in Christ. 
I gave this book 4 stars. Give it a try.
I was given a copy of this book by the author for my honest review.
