High Calling; A book review

8:54 AM

Yesterday I had the time to read I book that I bought last week. It was a book that I had wanted to read since it came out, but I found it at a resale shop at a price I could afford last week. The book was High Calling; the courageous life and faith of space shuttle Columbia Commander Rick Husband, by Evelyn Husband.

I have read many books on great men and women of the faith, and this belongs among them. Mr. Husband wanted to be an astronaut from the time he was four years old, and he never wavered from that goal. He spent the first thirty years of his life working to meet all the requirements for NASA’s astronaut program and was turned down twice. It was after the fist rejection that God really got a hold of him and changed his life.

This book was a great example of following God and trusting him in all things. I would highly recommend it.

I have a lot of books I am working on right now and they include, Tales from Grace Chapel Inn by Melody Carlson (a sweet fiction book), Whatever It Takes by J.D. Hayworth (about securing our border), and Discipleship by J. Heinrich. What are you guys reading?

  1. I have seen that book but haven't acquired it yet. I am reading To Have and To Hold right now (vision forum). It is a long book with a lot of old English in it so it is taking me longer to read it than other books. But I am really enjoying it so far. It has a lot of maiden in distress/men defending their honor stuff in it which is always good. =;) It also shares a lot of history background stuff.

    Thanks for sharing your book review!

    Blessings!

  2. Wow, that sounds like a really interesting book! I don't think I've ever read a whole book about space and all. Hmmm...what am I reading? Esther, Proverbs, and Hebrews in my Bible, The Hiding Place, which is a book about Corrie ten Boom's life. Pride and Prejudice, and The Autobiography of George Muller. So lots of books! I'm trying to read more classics and nonfiction this year, as you can see ;0
