To Don S. Coffeen,

I consider it an honor and a privilege to review and comment on your new book. “The Rescue” I hope you ask me to review your next work.

The Rescue

From the very first page I was intensely drawn into this narrative taken from Joshua chapter ten. The vivid portrayal of the battle scenes made me feel as if I was actually part of the engagements and the gut level spiritual lessons taken from this book still have me thinking. I found myself wanting to learn more about this part of the Old Testament. I now have a bigger and better perspective of God. If you are looking for a story filled with adventure, instructions in spiritual warfare with a just touch romance, this is a must read. I look forward to Don’s next book.

Dear Don,

Thank you. Thank you for your gracious invitation to read and review your labor of love and discovery. I’m honored that you asked and even more so having read your work.

Adding color and nuance to Joshua chapter 10, Don opens us to a world of spiritual formation from the perspective of warfare. The main character in this story should appeal to every man. His hopes and desires, struggles and resolve and even his quirks drew me into the wonder of a life lived for something more. This is a book every man should read and ponder.

Because He Is Near,

Thank you for involving me in reading and reviewing your book. This has been a humbling experience that has expanded and created a deeper brotherly fellowship in my life.

I have a much deeper desire to explore the Old Testament. This book provoked me to examine each verse deeper to find those abundant gifts waiting to be discovered. I would recommend any man seeking stronger faith in the battles of this world to read this book.
