My Second Favorite Book
Just finished reading what I will from this point on refer to as my second favorite book. It is entitled "Call of Duty, The Sterling Nobility of Robert E. Lee". It was was written by J. Steven Wilkins, a Presbyterian pastor back east. The first half of the book is a history of Robert E. Lee's life. The second half is charater traits that this man exhibited. If I was the Fire Chief of Los Angeles City Fire, I would make this book mandatory reading for all Captains at least, and hopefully for every new recruit who came on the job. If you would like to read it, I will buy it for you. No questions asked. Within the pages is an incredible example of godly Christian manhood and how it was exhibited in the life of one of the greatest Americans who ever lived. You will be challenged and inspired to live as a Christian in every arena of your life. It also has some really good parts in it for the ladies.
