Kelley (Adam Brown’s wife), Larry (his father) and Janice (his mom) asked Eric Blehm to write Adam’s life story in book form. They were looking for someone to fulfill Adam’s request to share his full testimony if anything happened to him. It was his desire to help others understand what God had done for him and wants to do for them too. So who is Adam Brown and why would you want to read a book about him? The first part of the question is easy he was a top-notch American patriot and hero, a Navy Seal, a loving devoted husband, fantastic father, and much more. I can’t answer the second part of the question for you, but I wanted to read ‘Fearless’ because of a short clip the publisher put out about Adam and the book.
The book is engaging, captivating, informative, enlightening, heart-warming, and heart-wrenching. Even the author found the final chapters hard to write and found himself hoping for a different outcome. A sentiment I shared as a reader starting around chapter seventeen.
Mr. Blehm gives background information on Adam’s parents and grandparents and gives a fairly detailed account of Adam’s life from birth to death. It shows how he lived his life basically fearlessly with determination and will power, yet with a tender honest bold compassion for others. It highlights those places in his life where will power and determination failed him and how his faith in and relationship with Jesus allowed him to overcome even his worst failures and become a man of God whose life led others to Jesus too.
There was one story shared that Mr. Blehm gave more detail on than I personally wanted to know, it had to do with ants and a dare. Other than that and some crude language peppered throughout the book, I feel this book is worth reading.
