Comments from people who have used this material:

"Dawson Trotman provides an example of what God can do with consistent commitment, purposeful passion, and relentless perseverance. His simple message--profoundly reflected in this book--that memory of and meditation upon Scripture will be a catalyst to a life of significance and service in the Kingdom of God. This commitment led me to reflect more than once throughout the book that all that Daws accomplished was without many of the advantages of today (the Internet, modern communication, etc.). And yet, my conclusion is that his commitment, passion and perseverance led to his significance and that the present day is so lacking in such individuals in large part because of the distractions that come with our heightened advantages. We are but children in the use of such tools. It is like 16-year-olds being given high performance sports cars with nowhere of note to travel. This book has been a major wake-up call for me to take note of the simple message that God's Word is worthy of great personal sacrifice and obedience. " - Mike Beavers

"Reading Daws opened my eyes to one of the major purposes in God's plan for the life of his people - to reach others with his love. Daws is an extremely well written biography that takes you inside Dawson Trotman's life and experience, but also takes you into his thoughts, showing you how he changed over a lifetime to understand the mission which had captured his heart - to know God and make Him known.

Towards the end, the book grows too focused on events on not on Daws' life, but it is otherwise an impacting, convicting, and inspirational read. A very worthwhile biography for anyone seeking to know God and make Him known. " - Matthew Green

Daws "is a fascinating story as told by a colleague who worked with him for many years...Ms. Skinner's book captures her subject's zest for life, his phenomenal energy, and also his faults."-Family Life

The author's "observations and judgments...contribute to making this a remarkably well-balanced account. These prevent it from becoming just another bland biography of a great man by an admiring disciple...Few will come away from the book without being challenged to reexamine the quality of their own spiritual lives."-Dr. Richard V. Pierard, professor of History, Indiana State University
