Book Review: One of the Few

One of the Few

This review was originally published by David on his blog Random Thoughts and Observations. The book is being relaunched this week, so I wanted to share it here for all of you.

First of all, as a way of disclosure, our family is a Marine family.  Once a Marine, always a Marine.  Any part of a Marine family is family.

Mr. Ladd contacted us and asked us to review his book.  He offered to send us a copy free for review.  However, we already had a copy that he had given away free through a Kindle promotion.

I give this book five stars with a little reservation.  Mr. Ladd takes his readers on a great journey as he goes from non-believer in Christ to a born-again Christian.

The reservation comes from chapters 13 & 14 where the book got rather tedious and seemed more like a master’s level tome than a good read. Once we got past that, everything got better, for the most part.

Mr. Ladd takes on the Brony community and My Little Pony discussing things he clearly does not fully understand.  Perhaps he is correct in some of his assessment, but not in all of it.

Other than that, this book is a great read.  If you have ever read Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s book A Study in Scarlet, you are used to a surprise ending like the one in this book.  If you are not familiar with that, you are in for a treat.

In spite of the two negative aspects listed above, I would have to suggest anyone who is curious about religion to read this book.  It is a great read for someone who is already a Christian.  It also uses some military comparisons to help someone who is questioning their faith, or lack thereof.

If you are questioning faith, or are just curious about religion, this book may help you.
