A Man After God's Own Heart Apr 21, 2002
Dawson Trotman provides an example of what God can do with consistent commitment, purposeful passion, and relentless perseverance. His simple message--profoundly reflected in this book--that memory of and meditation upon Scripture will be a catalyst to a life of significance and service in the Kingdom of God. This commitment led me to reflect more than once throughout the book that all that Daws accomplished was without many of the advantages of today (the Internet, modern communication, etc.). And yet, my conclusion is that his commitment, passion and perseverance led to his significance and that the present day is so lacking in such individuals in large part because of the distractions that come with our heightened advantages. We are but children in the use of such tools. It is like 16-year-olds being given high performance sports cars with nowhere of note to travel. This book has been a major wake-up call for me to take note of the simple message that God's Word is worthy of great personal sacrifice and obedience.
An Motivational and Impacting Biography Feb 21, 2002
Reading Daws opened my eyes to one of the major purposes in God's plan for the life of his people - to reach others with his love. Daws is an extremely well written biography that takes you inside Dawson Trotman's life and experience, but also takes you into his thoughts, showing you how he changed over a lifetime to understand the mission which had captured his heart - to know God and make Him known.
Towards the end, the book grows too focused on events on not on Daws' life, but it is otherwise an impacting, convicting, and inspirational read. A very worthwhile biography for anyone seeking to know God and make Him known.
Vivid story of a pioneer of modern Christianity. Mar 19, 1999
Betty Skinner has written a wonderful, thought provoking book about a true giant of modern Christianity - Dawson Trotman, founder and driving force of the Navigators. From his early days as a rebel and "bad boy" through his conversion and the development of his heart for others to his untimely death saving another person's life, this book challenged me to see in people great potential, but more importantly, to see in myself a call to disciple others - to help others move closer to God in their everyday life. It left me unsettled...but excited to get down to basics - pouring my life into others!
