About the BookVoiced from the cockpit of an A-10 Warthog fighter jet, Faith, Family and Fighter Jets leads believers and those seeking truth to discover a faith that overspills a safely compartmented view of religion into a compelling relationship with Christ, invading and weaving through their work, family and relationships with the hope, mission, and inspiration of biblical truth.
Book SynopsisWith the title Faith, Family and Fighter Jets splashed above a combat-worn fighter jet, soaring high above the mountains of Afghanistan, Colonel Todd "Riddler" Riddle's story is anything but typical. His writing conveys lessons of faith and leadership forged from a life of military service in harm's way; a missional life calling where the stakes of success and failure are at the highest possible levels. Colonel Todd "Riddler" Riddle's first person recollections of pulling the trigger on a GAU-8 Avenger 30mm canon on an A-10, firing Maverick missiles, using Night Vision Goggles, or laughably failing while coaching children's sports draw readers toward discovering an authentic and practical faith--one that opens the hearts of believers and those seeking to invite the greater presence of Christ across the key dimensions of their lives. Each chapter of Faith, Family and Fighter Jets concludes with key Thunderbolt takeaways for consideration and life application.Appealing to those who have found the Christian faith to be disappointingly safe, Faith, Family and Fighter Jets departs from the sterile, predictable formulas of workplace and life success to that of a compelling, obtainable and joyful calling in which biblical truth meets readers where they are. Colonel Todd "Riddler" Riddle extends the application of each lesson with current and credible organizational research--as well as Biblical examples--to provide a strong academic, religious, and theoretical foundation for readers.
