Item description for When I Consider the Heavens by Robert E. Hage...


As a scientist, aircraft design engineer, aviation consultant and major in the U.S. Air Force, Bob Hage made a career taming the skies via aerospace technology. He co-authored the textbook, "Airplane Performance, Stability and Control," which is still in print and use after 50 yearswithout revision. While at Boeing, Hage authored "Jet Propulsion in Commercial Air Transportation," pioneering the idea that jet-powered transport planes would be superior to propeller-driven transports. His greatest achievement is dependence on the Word of God and prayer as a dynamic for living, which has given him personal performance, stability and control.

He tells the story of his romance with the heavens as well as the spiritual development of others within his circle of influence. A single sortie its not. The colorful individuals who became a part of his life story are like integral parts of an aircraft, thrusting this story to great heights. A partial list includes James S. McDonnell (founder and former president of McDonnell Aircraft Corp.), Sanford McDonnell (past president of McDonnell Corp.), Eddie Rickenbacker (World War I flying ace and former president, Eastern Airlines), Bill Allen (former president, Boeing Corp.), and Juan Trippe (founder, Pan American Airlines), Donald Douglas (founder, Douglas Aircraft Co.) Fritz Phillips (Phillips Corp.), Francis Schaeffer (founder of LAbri), and Lorne Sanny (President Emeritus, The Navigators.

You will enjoy reading about his military service at the Pentagon, the fierce competition between leading aircraft companies, and his global travels. Also, in a time of corporate scandals, it is refreshing to read about the high ethical standards that made his career and the corporations he worked for successful. Most important, you will be fascinated by the way God worked through a simple cleaning lady as well as a private conference with Francis Schaeffer in the Swiss Alps to bring Bob to faith in Christ.

When I Consider the Heavens will interest the engineer, the businessperson, the historian, and those who love a good autobiography. Particularly inspiring is the way Bob Hage freely opens his heart for all to see that Jesus Christ is the navigator of his life and career.

The book includes 16 photographs from the Boeing Corp. archives, most in color, tracing aviations history.

Reviews - What do customers think about When I Consider the Heavens?

Sincere and slightly biased  Dec 2, 2003
This book is a biography of my grandfather, Robert Hage. I always knew he was a man of God, but in reading this book, I also found out how involved he was in the last 50 years of the aerospace industry. The story is an amazing testimony to a man who used the many gifts God gave him to touch the lives of people throughout the world.
