From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.

Journalist Michael J. Mooney reveals the life story of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle, the American Sniper, from his Texas childhood up through his death in February 2013. A brutal warrior but a gentle father and husband, Kyle led the life of an American hero and legend. His heroism and reputation in the military service earned him the nickname "the devil" among insurgents and the nickname The Legend among his SEAL brethren, but his impact extended beyond that after he came home, through his work with fellow veterans.

Laugh......the raw and unashamed approach of anyone toward life usually puts a smile on people's faces

What did you love best about God Is Just Not Fair?

In a time where our world is reaching for answers and so quick to place blame, Jennifer brings us on a journey of self discovery, God discovery and leads us to a spiritual paradigm shift that disarms the accuser (devil).

God is Good......Psalm 136:1

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Two people praying for the same healing, one is delivered, the other must endure......"there is nothing like struggle to bring us to a place where we need to depend on God!"

Any additional comments?

Only in complete surrender do we truly experience the peace and rest God has for everyone of us...
"Not my will, but thine be done!" - Jesus
