The Road to Unafraid: How the Army’s Top Ranger Faced Fear and Found Courage through Black Hawk Down and Beyond (paperback)
Jeff Struecker, a “Black Hawk Down” hero, the Army’s Top Ranger, now a pastor and keynote speaker, tells his own story of his time on the front lines of almost every US initiative since Panama, and tells how God taught him faith from the front in fear-soaked times. As readers go on-mission with Struecker through his harrowing tales, they will learn how to face their own fears with faith in a mighty God. Just as he told one of his charges in Mogadishu: “The difference between being a coward and a hero is not whether you’re scared; it’s what you do while you’re scared.”
