Duration: 6 hours 24 minutes
The straight-faced, funny man of Duck Dyanasty has a real story to tell. Not a repeat of the previous Duck Dynasty books, Jase opens up about his personal family life, his childhood days with a drunken father, and how he came to faith. The book will be structured around lessons of faith in the blind on topics like respect, passion, forgiveness, generosity, humility, kindness, and honesty. Chapters will discuss...
--the highlights of Jase's memory of the early days with Phil. He remembers Phil rolling around on the ground, fighting with his drinking buddies and the flashing lights of the police car coming to take somebody to jail.
--his high school days and his strong commitment to NOT be like Phil had been. So he opted for total abstinence from drinking and sex and found himself on the outskirts of the cool kids.
--the moment he forgave Phil for being such a terrible father in his younger days. After Phil became a Christian, he baptized Jase in the river in front of their house. Here, Jase realized that if he had been forgiven by Jesus, he needed to forgive his dad.
--his first hunt with Phil. Jase was totally "green" at the sport and actually shot at the duck decoys, thinking they were real ducks. He's never forgotten the excitement he saw in Phil at the hunt--an excitement he'd never seen before. He realized that hunting was not about the kill but about the shared experience with your hunting companions.
--his first date with Missy, which was a "fake date" to make another girl jealous. When he fell for Missy and asked her father for her hand in marriage, Missy's dad flatly refused.
--and of course, a chapter on Uncle Si, with stories not told in previous books. Si and Jase have a very close relationship, which is revealed in this often hilarious tales.
--other chapters include stories of his brothers, frog hunting and fishing, and his most memorable road trips.
--finally, a chapter on hunting in heaven. Here, Jase shares his love for the land and our responsiblity to care for it.
More than a behind-the-scenes look at this beloved Duck Dynasty character, listeners will be inspired and encouraged to implement Jase's lessons from the blind into their own lives.
