On Tuesday as I made my way to Boston I opened my book that I had brought for the flight up entitled Fearless by Eric Blehm. I don’t know much about Navy SEALS or Team SIX so when I saw this book was up for review I figured I could probably learn a lot about a branch of the military I am not as familiar with. Little did I know I was in for the story of a man whose life went from walking the straight and narrow to running from God into drugs and then turning his life around and becoming a Navy SEAL. His personal story told in the book by his family and friends to the author is one that is filled with personal struggles and physical challenges but above all a fearless attitude that made him into one of our national’s most elite warriors. I feel like I got to know Adam Brown through the eyes of those closest to him and when I finished the book I felt sad that there was nothing more to learn of this great man who made the ultimate sacrifice doing what he did best: volunteering to do the tough jobs, defending his brothers, and serving his country. Reading his fellow Navy SEALs accounts of his compassion in a warzone, his toughness in battle which often left him bloody but saying “it’s all good” as he helped someone else, and his sense of humor quickly made him feel like someone I had known for years. I won’t go into detail about much because I don’t want to ruin the best parts of the story but I will say that as the book goes on and he embarks on his final mission my heart broke. I cried on the plane and I’m crying as I type this now. While I know that Adam Brown’s story is one of the many of those who have fallen while defending this great nation, the life lessons I gleaned from his story will be ones I will carry with me always. It is amazing what happens when a man allows God to lead, guide, and direct all areas of his life.

I received this book free of charge from the Waterbrook Multnomah Publishers in exchange for my honest review.
