First, I'm not sure why reviewer Tim was surprised at the Christian aspect of this book since God is in the title. Anyway, It was interesting to see this guy go from professional skate boarder, and stoner to a SEAL. I wanted to cry over the sweet friendship/mentor/mentee relationship with Scott Helvenston (former SEAL and Blackwater contractor killed in Iraq). There were also funny parts from his childhood such as a bad run-in with a homemade 'rocket' made with a paper towel tube.
There's a lot of technical information such as he goes into detail about diving equipment, technique and firearms.
I didn't expect the narration of be A+ since this is narrated by the author, but it gives the audiobook a more personal feel.

Chad Williams boldly holds nothing back... except for the expletives of his instructors, fellow candidates and colleagues in the Seals.
This story is an exceptional witness of living as a Christian in a very tough environment. I found the story very encouraging and recommend reading this if you have any testosterone flowing through your veins.

I thought this book was along the lines of American Sniper, Lone Survivor but that was not the case. The main focus was religion and finding religion rather than SEAL training and operations. Chad describes some interesting hell raising when younger but I felt the book didn't heat up, end the way I was expecting or focus enough on the Teams.
