Book Review: Heroes at Home

Ellie Kay
Bethany House, Minnesota, 2002.
Topic: Military living

While written primarily from the perspective of (and by) a pilot’s wife, it contains good information even for fighter pilots. Chapter 3 contains good information from the perspective of a wife at home, regarding the uncertainty of moves and the potential for her husband to receive a remote assignment to Korea. Chapter 16 is devoted to military separations, and includes pre-TDY checklists, including a list of the “Top 12 Don’ts” regarding deployments (the list notably includes having a negative attitude, overdosing on TV, or spending time alone with other gender). Mrs. Kay has also written books on saving money, and some of her tips and ideas regarding money management are incorporated in the book as well.

Recommended for Christian fighter pilots (and their spouses) looking for insight into basic military family and relationship issues.

This book is available from Christian Book Distributors and Amazon.

Book Review: The Christian Attitude Toward War

Loraine Boettner
Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, New Jersey 1985.
Topic: Christianity and War

Though in some parts a treatise against communism, this book contains interesting research on the Christian and war from Biblical, historical, and philosophical perspectives.

Not Recommended. If you are specifically interested in the philosophical discussion of the morality of war, the book is interesting, though it doesn’t provide too much in the way of unique insight.

This book is available from Christian Book Distributors.

Book Review: A More Elite Soldier

Chuck Holton
Multnomah Publishers, Sisters, Oregon, 2003.
Topic: Christian living

Mr. Holton’s book is not specifically for a Christian military audience, but it is very well written; it is essentially autobiographical relating to the author’s time as an Army ranger, with analogies to Christianity, though the application is not specific to the military life.

Recommended for those who enjoy application of the military to Christianity. Not specific to the Christian fighter pilot.

This book is available from Christian Book Distributors and Amazon.
