From Pearl Harbor to Calvary: The Story of the Lead Pilot of the Pearl Harbor Attack and His Conversion to Christianity
Mitsuo Fuchida, read by Karl Choi. Christianaudio, unabridged, two CDs, 2.5 hrs., $5.98 ISBN 978-1-61045-239-7
Fuchida—a former captain in the Imperial Japanese Navy Air Service—tells an epic tale of war and religion, and how the two eventually lead him to a career as a Christian preacher in the United States after WWII. His story is indeed an incredible one: Fuchida led the attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. But following the war, he “surrendered his heart to Jesus Christ” and transformed himself from “a soldier of pain to a soldier of love.” Karl Choi offers winning narration, rich in depth and nuance, that is so convincing it blurs the line between author and narrator. A compulsive listening experience that is as short as it is sweet. An eChristian paperback. (Sept.)
