Danger Calling

Authors: Peb Jackson and James Lund
Publisher: Revell
September 2010
ISBN: 978-0-8007-3405-3
Genre: Inspirational/Christian living/nonfiction

Becoming a man is about much more than age. It’s about sacrifice, perseverance, courage, and leadership.

DANGER CALLING contains sixteen true life stories about daring and adventure. Stories that take you from shark attacks to mountain climbing and beyond. The stories are very well written, engaging and held my interest, but some of them are extremely gory and explicit.

After reading the stories, there is a section of group questions for you to answer with a group of your friends, out loud, in a discussion. Then there is a section for you to answer privately, with plenty of lines for you to write your answers.

Some thoughts included in this book are:

> Would you be able to help a blind climber in the Death Zone on Mt. Everest?
> What is your source of strength in a crisis?
> Could you lead others into battle knowing some will die?
> To What challenge is God summoning you right now?
> How much are you willing to risk?

This book will have you doing some deep thinking about your life and you would react in adverse situations. And it will teach you some biblical truths along the way.

I have a teenage son greatly interested in survival so when I was offered the chance to review this book for Revell I jumped at it. It would be an excellent gift for your adventurer this Christmas season (or at any time). I highly recommend this book for any young man. $12.99. 215 pages.
