Riveting and faith-promoting, Supersonic Saints is a collection of more than 15 true stories of LDS pilots who felt the hand of the Lord in their lives when they needed it most. Many of these pilots are still active in the United States Armed Forces. All of them are alive and active members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
It is hard to guess when buying books for my 11 year old son whether he will like them enough to read more than 2 pages, especially when buying on-line, but he loved this one, devoured it all within a couple of days and then begged for the DVD. Now he wants part 2! Thank you John Bytheway!
This book was great for a busy mom. The stories are captivating, but short. You can read a chapter and then come back next week for another chapter. I loved the stories of the pilots- it made me realize how involved Heavenly Father can be in our day-to-day lives if we let him.
In a world that values violence, it is so nice for our young men to read these real life testimonies of harrowing experiences where the authors recognized the hand of the Father in saving them. My sons are developing a new sense of the dangers of violence and the necessity to stay near the Savior.
I started this book, and just couldn't put it down. The stories are so intense that it keeps you waiting and wondering until the very end, and on top of that you get to hear how the gospel played a role in each of these peoples lives!!!! It's a great present for anybody teenager or older!
My son is not an avid reader, so I was worried that he might not dive into the book and like it. Not only did he love it, he is excited to get the 2nd one!
Just finished reading this. Great collection of aviation tales. From the seemingly mundane to the exhilarating, these tales are quite interesting.
I have only read an excerpt but just loved it. I have worked for the last 5 years in a major regional airport in Western Australia so of course I loved reading about planes but I also loved the inspiring faith filled aspect. I am encouraged to stay in tune with the spirit for that moment when you can make a differnece to someones life. I am off to buy the book
Maybe it's my own love of airplanes, but these stories are great.. Wonderful accounts of the faith of good men in difficult circumstances.. Highly recommended for anyone wanting a lift in trying times..
