Biography & Autobiography - Military
Fearless is a full-throttle, no holding back, breakneck-paced true story of Navy SEAL Adam Brown. Ever since his childhood, Adam Brown was a risk taker who loved pushing the limits. This engaging account of his life is nothing short of breathtaking, earth-changing, and absolutely miraculous.
Eric Blehm, New York Times Best-selling Author of The Only Thing Worth Dying For, has masterfully illustrated and expressed the fascinating trials, triumphs, tribulations, and turmoil that defined a man hardwired with a mission to give everything he had and was in mind, body, and spirit in service to his country, his family, and his comrades.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Fearless, besides the literary prowess and the novel-like intrigue with which it’s written, is that Adam Brown encouraged others to share his entire story, in the event of his death. He was selfless, courageous, brave, and faith-filled enough that he didn’t want any part of his life hidden, no matter how dark that time had been, because he knew that others would find hope and encouragement knowing what he’d gone through. That has indeed been the case.
Fearless is a portrait of a real American hero with some dark times in his past who, with the assurance of faith in the Lord, the love of family, and close friends, proves that “all things are possible for those who love God, who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
Adam Brown took the same approach to pretty much everything he did in life. His philosophy for everything was: “Go hard or go home!” And that’s precisely what he did. He would give whatever or whoever was in front of him his all, and if that wasn’t sufficient he would push himself even harder until he reached (and usually far surpassed) his goal. This approach to his life, military training, and faith earned him the respect of some of the most elite warriors in the U.S. Navy SEALS as well as those around him in the air, on land, in the water, in the barracks, overseas, across enemy lines as well as at home with his wife and children, and the family and friends he held dear back in his hometown of Hot Springs, Arkansas.
Only God Himself could have come up with such a plan for one man’s life. What a remarkable example of what we can do with God, for whom nothing is impossible. Adam Brown experienced many instances of being incredibly broken in mind, body, and spirit, yet he grabbed onto his faith and used his gift of fearlessness to persevere. When others did throw in the towel and accepted defeat, this man pushed forward relentlessly. He was seemingly immune to pain, to giving up, to defeat…He gave everything he had and everything he was until he took his very last breath. If that’s not the definition of a true hero, then I don’t know what is.
