MEMOIR
Chad Williams. SEAL of God: The Path is Narrow … But the Reward is Great. Carol Stream, Ill.: Tyndale House Books, 2012. 304 pages. $14.99.
Williams, a soldier-turned-minister, recounts his intense training and six-year tour of duty as a Navy SEAL. Though he made it to the top tier of the Navy’s elite soldiers, he felt unfulfilled. Then he became a Christian. He endured harassment from his fellow soldiers on top of his difficult missions.
NONFICTION

Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert, Nina Shea. Persecuted: The Global Assault on Christians. Nashville, Tenn.: Thomas Nelson, 2013. 416 pages. $16.99.
Christians in the West largely are shielded from persecution. Worldwide, this is not the case. The authors present stories from the East and Muslim world that will shock most Americans. The book ends with a call to action for those who have freedom to worship to help those who do not.
CHRISTIAN LIVING
Mary DeMuth. Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus. Nashville, Tenn.: Thomas Nelson, 2012. 224 pages. $16.99.
