Days before Chad Williams was to report to military duty in Great Lakes, Illinois, he turned on a television and was greeted with the horrifying images of his mentor, US Navy SEAL Scott Helvenston, being brutally murdered in a premeditated ambush on the roads of Fallujah, Iraq. Steeled in his resolve, Chad followed in Scott’s footsteps and completed the US military’s most difficult and grueling training to become a Navy SEAL. One of only thirteen from a class of nearly two hundred to make it straight through to graduation, Chad served his country on SEAL Teams One and Seven for five years, completing tours of duty in the Philippines, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, and Iraq.

Part memoir, part evangelism piece, SEAL of God follows Chad’s journey through the grueling Naval Ops training and onto the streets of Iraq, where he witnessed the horrors of war up close. Along the way, Chad shares his own radical conversion story and talks about how he draws on his own experiences as a SEAL to help others better understand the depths of Christ’s sacrifice and love.

Listener Opinions

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mike | 2/9/2014

    " An OK book, most of it's a repeat of other SEAL books and it's more focused on his trials leading up to his conversion to preaching. For someone looking for a religious read it might be more interesting than to someone looking for a military or current events read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Carl Sampson | 1/28/2014

    " Another great book written by and about a Navy SEAL (himself). I really enjoyed the story on his path to become a SEAL and then his transformation once he found Christ and how that effected his relationship with teammates and his goals. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Myka | 1/24/2014

    " Inspiring story of teenage confusion, drive, perseverance and finding God after becoming a Seal in the Navy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 1/22/2014

    " I like true stories and this one of Chad Williams, who was wild as a young man, became a Navy SEAL, and then gave up control of his life to Christ, is worth reading. Not quite a four star, but better than just three stars. A quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ron | 1/21/2014

    " I have to admit I read through this book really quickly. The details of the seal training were really interesting, but I was so disappointed with the cliche ending. (SPOILER ALERT) Rebellious teen manages to achieve his dreams, but something is missing, finds God and his life is turned upside down, gives up his dreams to become a full-time evangelist, ends book with an altar call. Ugh. "
