Description

"There is no greater love than to lay down one's life for one's friends." -John 15:13. Just days before Chad Williams was scheduled to report for basic training at the Great Lakes naval base, he turned on the television and was greeted with the horrifying image of his mentor and training partner, US Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston, being brutally murdered in a premeditated ambush on the streets of Fallujah, Iraq. Steeled in his resolve, Chad committed himself to completing the US military's most difficult training to become a Navy SEAL-and avenge his friend's death. One of only thirteen out of a class of 173 to make it straight through to graduation, Chad went on to serve on SEAL Teams 1 and 7, completing tours of duty in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and finally Iraq. There, Chad's journey came full circle when his team was ambushed by enemy machine gunners-close to the same road where his hero had been killed five years earlier. SEAL of God follows Chad's extraordinary journey through twenty-five grueling weeks of BUD/S training and onto the hostile streets of Al Anbar Province, Iraq, where he witnessed the horrors of war up close. Along the way, Chad shares his own radical conversion story and discovers the true meaning of ultimate sacrifice.

Professional reviews

"Author Chad Williams, an evangelical Christian and former Navy SEAL, gives a sincere and competent reading of his own story. As a youth in California, where he was a daredevil skateboarder and all-around ne'er-do-well, Williams finds focus in his desire to be a SEAL. Upon his conversion, his focus becomes to serve God. The story may seem somewhat formulaic to many, but others may enjoy the author's sincerity. While not a polished reader, Williams speaks well; his pace is deliberate, and his enunciation is crystal clear. However, his modulation is so controlled that at times it becomes monotonous. Especially captivating are the author's descriptions of SEAL training. M.T.F. (c) AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine"
