Book and Media Reviews

Many of the books and videos below were researched as part of studying Christianity and its relation to being a fighter pilot and military officer.  Some were read because of the title only to find that they were only marginally related to the topic.  Others were so insightful as to have been missed all these years.

Books that broadly mention religion and military topics are many and varied; those that sufficiently contribute to the complex understanding of the relationship between faith and the military profession are far fewer.

The objective here is not to promote or wantonly criticize, but to provide a "filter" for those seeking similar information so they can narrow their search to the books and resources they really want.

Select the links below to read reviews, or browse all reviews.

Books that are recommended are of direct benefit to the Christian military officer and fighter pilot.

Books that are recommended with a caveat are interesting and potentially useful, but may not be specifically about or to Christian military officers or fighter pilots.

Books that are not recommended are not necessarily bad books, but they may have held little real benefit to a Christian military officer or fighter pilot interested in military Christian living.
