Book Review - 33 Men

33 Men

Inside the Miraculous Survival and Dramatic Rescue of the Chilean Miners
By: Jonathan Franklin

Book Review

Complicated! From beginning to end this event contained a surprising amount of complexity. I felt the Jonathan Franklin did a good job portraying this complexity while at the same time weaving it all together into a compelling account. Since the beginning of time, people have tried to shape the historical record for their purposes; however, this seems especially true in the day of visual media. Thus, when I read historical records such as this one that happened during modern media times, I appreciate the effort to bring all the factors together in a seemingly accurate way.

My only complaint is not any fault of the author. There are several elements to this story that are rougher, darker, and baser in nature. They were a part of the story, and I prefer to not have too much exposure to things like that. They are probably no big deal to most people.

Book Reviews

I am nuts about books. I read on all kinds of topics. I attempt to review each book I read for the sake of my own enrichment as well as conversation starters with others.

Pastoral Ministry

God has called me to be a pastor, and occasionally I have some pastoral thoughts I like to share.

The Attic

You never know what you will find in an attic! Usually there is a hodgepodge of things buried under dust.
