Into a complacent generation God placed Dawson Trotman. Full of contagious zeal, drive, and creativity, Trotman helped awaken those around him and exhorted Christians to single-mindedly obey God. Thousands responded to his challenge of fruitful discipleship. Now his challenge goes to you. The Navigator will motivate you to joyfully obey God more. It will invite you to share in Trotman’s “bifocal vision”: a consuming passion for the salvation of the world and also for the spiritual nurturing of one individual. He once said, “If you care for one, God can give you a burden for the world.” Through the worldwide Christian organization he founded, The Navigators, Trotman helped bring back some forgotten biblical truths: the importance of personal follow-up, one-on-one training, and the multiplication of disciples. Author Robert D. Foster, a longtime Navigator associate, combines his own personal recollections, interviews with those who knew Trotman, and Trotman’s conference messages to portray a man who was unconventional and fun-loving—a strong disciplinarian with a compassionate heart. Let The Navigator help you find what God wants for your life, and then help you wholeheartedly do it!

Perception of the Navigator is a collection of poetry, that's entertaining! A fascinating read! This book's about living, bearing witness to time, and seizing one's destiny! Lobaito sets to establish an identity all his own, with such poems as, "Whatever's the Cost for Love I Accept" a romantic villanelle, which he proclaims, "I'll climb a thousand mountains, of a thousand skulls, / Just to reach your fair feet, and kiss your sweet lips!" expressing emotion at its consent. In, "A Painted Emotion" he writes, "Ambition / Has lost her mind / To a drug called knowledge / For the fruits of wisdom / In a dream beyond cypress and sonic ash, / Booming through a field of wild heathers" in a jazz-like state of consciousness. With the poem, "Hope is a Weapon" Lobaito becomes more punctual, with lines, "Hope is a weapon that is used to create destruction, / That is, if you believe in the miracle of life / And justification of death" using pessimism's fatalistic views. And in, "Guiding Principles" he writes, "Thou shall not be oneself in public, / If it requires justice to be correct! ... Be kind to bugs: ants, roaches, / Headlice etc! / You never know if reincarnation's real!" A true poem of satirical wit! Each poem chisels itself onto the page, as if lightning was a mechanical pen to use! Lobaito personifies passion with pizzazz, and grace with conviction! If you never bought a volume of poetry, this is the book to start!
