Book Review: Good Call: Reflections on Faith, Family, and Fowl Hardcover by Jase Robertson and Mark Schlabach


edelweiss disclosure

It's Easter week, so it's the perfect time for a book for the 
'older' kids in the family- one full of faith and family!

good call cover

Synopsis: 
“My first thoughts about God came in a duck blind as I gazed upon the diversity and beauty of creation. There is nothing in nature that can be reproduced or equaled by humans. None of our computers, microchips, or cell phones can duplicate what God has put forth. Viewing the details of this magnificent earth is better than any sermon from any preacher I have heard about the evidence of God.” 

More than a behind-the-scenes look at this beloved Duck Dynasty character, readers will be inspired and encouraged to implement Jase’s “good call” reflections on faith, family, and fowl into their own lives. Jase Robertson gives us a deep look behind his funnyman exterior. In addition to stories of life in the Robertson family and epic tales of hunting of all kinds, readers will get an inside look at Jase’s personal faith in the Creator of the outdoors he so dearly loves: 



Review
The closer we look at the Robertson family, the more we discover the substance and authenticity below the surface of these well-known TV characters. 

Much like my earlier review of The Women of Duck Commander, this book shows the real person behind the reality persona. Probably the biggest surprise for those not familiar with the Robertson clan, is how religious and faithful Jase is. Like his family members, he is very devout and his faith is a part of him, not an act of show or pretend.  jase is VERY honest about the things he did in the past, the 'good calls' (like marrying his wife Missy) and the bad ones (dealing with his father's drinking). He takes the reader through his entire life, and talks frankly and openly about his loves- family, faith and hunting! The book is a bit if a surprise for those that think they know the men from the hit show- unlike other reality shows, them of Duck Commander are so much MORE than what we see on TV, and truly should be admired!

This is a wonderful book to give to any fan of the show, but it would be great for college age/young adults to read, and I know many a dad would love to receive it for Father's Day this year!.
