This book is an excellent read for the Christian that enjoys reading about the military and/or theology. Admittedly, I don't regularly read books with as hard an edge as this one. It does slam some professionals I deeply respect- it challenges you as a reader. I also have some issues with a statement on history made in this book. That being said, there are many aspects I enjoyed in One of the Few.
I found the parts of the book about Ladd's own life (family and career) to be very honest and open. The way that faith becomes part of his life through the people he loves is wonderful. I very much enjoyed the pieces about his wife and how God spoke through her to him.
