Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from Jason B. Ladd through publisher Boone Shepherd. I was not required to write a positive review.

One of the few teaches us about our Chrisitan lives and the relationship which we have with God. It does this by true-life events and experiences which occurred in Jason’s life and the lives around him. These experiences and events are captured from Jason’s youth and follow through to the days when he served in the marines. Jason uses the true-life experiences to create analogies and example which are related to our walk with God and what the Bible says about it. Sometimes the lessons can be learned from a different angle then what we have learned them previously from other learning types.
All of us may not have been through the same experiences as Jason, served in the military, or flew a plane, but we may have similar experiences which have something in common with those areas which he uses to further explain the messages in One of the Few. Jason has made the text understandable enough that the reader does not have to know anything about the military or planes to follow his lead and know what is happening in the situations displayed in his text. Jason also shared about questions he had during his youth, which involved the subject of Christianity. That is one experience I think all of us can feel akin to.
We should all march forward, without looking back and serve the Lord our God with all that we are, as we fight for the souls of this world. Let us not grow weary but find the strength in God to continue on each hour and day until we receive our rest in the true home being set up for us in God’s Kingdom.
Jason helps us to analyze and reflect on our own lives, behaviors, attitudes, and relationships with God. Much of what he puts out as questions are very thought provoking. I recommend One of the Few.
