|Best Book of this Series! Apr 26, 2010|
|This newest installment in the wonderful series of books on faith on the battlefields, deals with the ongoing wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Three very gifted authors worked together to deliver a powerful series of stories that show courage and faith. It also demonstrates and shows the spiritual connections between these warriors and God through their individual experiences. |
The full title of this inspiring book is "Battlefields & Blessings: Stories Of Faith And Courage from The War In Iraq & Afghanistan". Truly a lot of loving work went into putting these personal stories together. It is not just about what takes place on battlefields but it is also about people: veterans, mother's and fathers and chaplains and even non-veterans such congressman, contractors, and missionaries.
This book is definitely good for the soul of the reader. It is an easy to read accounting of those who lives have been touched by this current war on terrorism. It is heart warming, as well at times, a little heart wrenching.
This is one book that I proudly display on my won personal bookshelf. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who has military people in their lives. I even recommend it to those who are just patriotic or love a book of great faith.

|Battlefields and Blessings Iraq/Afganistan Feb 2, 2010|
|Amazing book. A great daily read, but I can't find anyone who has been able to lay it down after reading the story of the day. Gave out 14 at Christmas and everyone has loved it.|
|Today's HEROES OF FAITH from the Battlefield Nov 18, 2009|
|While this is meant to be a DAILY book of meditations for anyone involved directly or indirectly with the global war against terror-- from 9/11 to today's battlefield--most of us will find it almost impossible to stop from reading days or weeks ahead. The authors weave these stories together so adeptly as they are shared from the hearts of those in the battle, from those waiting at home, and from those called alongside as chaplains and medical staff. Our memories of the news accounts from the battlefield often dim with time, but these stories of our modern-day 'heroes of the faith' will be carried for years in our hearts and shared long into the future with our loved ones.|

|A MUST READ! Nov 13, 2009|
|"Testimonies of God's power, grace, protection, love and deliverance are clearly displayed in this devotional. My husband served during the war in Iraq and is soon to serve in Afghanistan so this really hits home. It is a true blessing to us as a military Christian couple, as well as a blessing to anyone who reads it. VERY INSPIRATIONAL, LIFE CHANGING AND A MUST READ!"|
