Book Review: From Pearl Harbor to Calvary
After reading Wounded Tiger earlier this year, I've wanted to read this book. (I've also wanted to read more about Jake DeShazer. But I happened to find From Pearl Harbor To Calvary for $1.) This is a short autobiography. Mitsuo Fuchida concisely relates for readers his experiences during World War II; his restlessness after the war, and his quest for answers; and ultimately his conversation to Christ, and his subsequent evangelical work for the Lord. It may be short, but, it is nevertheless compelling.
In chapter one, the author recalls bombing Pearl Harbor.
In chapter two, the author relates his further experiences during the war itself.
In chapter three, the author writes of his experiences after the war, his longing for peace, and his quest for answers.
In chapter four, the author writes of his conversion and shares his testimony.
The final chapters (chapter five through chapter seven), readers learn of his evangelical work, his work for the Lord, how he shared his testimony with others, and how his focus changed so completely, his work to spread the gospel.
I would definitely recommend From Pearl Harbor to Calvary.
