About The Book
THEY CALL ME MIRACLE MAN
A LIfe of Success, Tragedy, Betrayals and Hope
To quote from a small part of the introduction to the book, "Hang on to your hat; you're about to ride on a roller coaster that has been Jay's life." THEY CALL ME MIRACLE MAN is a memoir of the life of Jay Straub.
In it he shares how intrigued he was, as he sat on the front porch with his dad, watching the B-52s as they flew their approaches to land at the Amarillo Air Force Base. From there he goes on to share about his first flying lesson at the age of 12, progresses on to his first flying job at the age of 18, and then transitions to becoming a captain for, at the present time, the largest airline in the world, American Airlines.
In sharing about his career in aviation, Straub reveals some major events where God intervened to spare his life. Going from page to page, you will absorb Straub’s life in all of its ups and downs. He is very transparent in his failures along with his successes, and in all of it you will see God's provision, love, and healing hand.
