The Arrow That Flies By Day is a Christian fiction book by John Servant. The story is about a man called John Thaddeus, who is a Marine veteran with hopes of becoming an NFL kicker. John Thaddeus decides to go and try out for the kicker position for the New Jersey Raptors. Initially, both the head and assistant coach are hesitant to give John a chance. However, they are amazed at his talent and skill when they decide to let him try out. We get to see John Thaddeus faced with several obstacles and hindrances in this book. Even when things get tough, he perseveres through his faith, hard work, and determination.

The Arrow That Flies By Day is truly an amazing book to read. There are so many important lessons Christians can learn from reading John Thaddeus’ story. I was profoundly motivated by lots of things in this book. For instance, it was inspiring to read how John Thaddeus overcame the injury in his right leg. By the grace of God, along with the help he received from both his father and Sister Francis, John was able to overcome his injury and play football.

Another thing I liked about this book was the fact that it felt realistic. Without giving too much of the plot away, I was not expecting the book to end the way it did in regards to what happened to John. I was deeply invested in John’s character development and what happened to him. However, I realized that it was supposed to be a lesson. The events that occurred were meant to serve a higher purpose. It is nice that the author created a character that many readers can relate with.

I loved reading The Arrow That Flies By Day. There was so much helpful information and motivation that I got from this story. The story is also wonderfully written and edited, as well. Throughout my reading process, I did not encounter any errors whatsoever while reading. I did not have any issues or dislikes to mention about the story as well. I will therefore be giving this book a rating of 4 out of 4 stars.

Since this book is Christian based, there was no use of profane language. I feel like this book would be perfect for Christian readers because they can find strength and motivation through reading the story. Non-religious readers may have a hard time connecting with elements of the story.

I don't belong to the Christian religion so it will be better for the Christian faith.

I love the storyline of the book. But I usually like the carefree nature of books that don't conform to any religion. Thanks a lot for the detailed review and recommendation.

I also think what happened to John was a lesson to be learned. I also felt very remorseful about the situation. Thanks for the review.
