I first heard about this book on Facebook. A few of my friends had posted about it, and since my dad is a Navy veteran, I thought it sounded interesting, so I went ahead and purchased it. I started reading it, and it immediately drew me in.

SEAL of God is the autobiography of Chad Williams, an ex-Navy SEAL. In it, he tells about his decision to become a SEAL, his training, his years as a SEAL, and, most importantly, his acceptance of Christ as LORD of his life. He shares how his experiences as a SEAL helped him better understand Christ's love and sacrifice.

Chad did an excellent job in writing this book. He pulls you into his story. A good portion of the book shares his experiences during SEAL training, and that was absolutely riveting. He shares how his lack of feeling fulfilled once he reached the top of the ladder and became a SEAL led to his conversion to Christ, and eventually, to him entering the ministry.

This was an excellent book. It's most definitely worth reading, whether or not you have any interest in the Navy or the SEALS. I read the entire book in just two days because I couldn't put it down. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

    Different perspective

    I thought it was a good book. I enjoyed reading it, but I just didn't leave the book thinking "WOW". Wonder if he wrote the book only to get in on the Seal craze.

    A quick summer read

    Seal of God chronicles the life of Chad Williams, a Navy Seal who served from 2004-2010 and is now in full-time ministry. The book is basically Williams’ testimony of how God changed his life.

    This was an easy, enjoyable read – a great summer book (I read it in about 6 hours over two days). The first 2/3′s of the book focus on Williams’ life before Christ got ahold of him, with some extraordinary stories of his life before Christ. I suppose that was my only criticism of the book: while his transformation was dramatic and incredible, I found myself wondering why I had to read so much to finally find evidence of what God had done in his life. That’s really the only reason I’m not reviewing this book more highly. Williams said throughout the book that he was very self-centered and proud of his own accomplishments, and that was clearly echoed in the first 180 pages of the book. There was a dramatic change after the story of his conversation, but I was just hoping to see that sooner rather than later.

    I will report that once the transformation happened in the book it was incredibly dramatic and inspirational. Perhaps one of the most moving parts to read was when he told the story of the abuse he underwent by others after becoming a Christian – it’s hard to believe behavior like what he chronicled still exists in our country, but I know it does. It’s also a confirmation that Jesus’ words are true that we will be persecuted for our faith.

    In conclusion, I’ll give this book 3/5 stars. If you’re looking for an inspirational, quick read this summer then check out Seal of God, but don’t be surprised if at times you walk away from it focused more on the author of the book than the Author of Changed Lives.

    For the record, I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest (though not necessarily favorable) review.
