Grace Under Fire
Letters of Faith in Times of WarBook - 2007
A moving record of the importance of spirituality to troops and their families, from the American Revolution through the fighting in Iraq. Reflecting the writers' thoughts, feelings, and questions about matters of faith, these letters offer a window on how individuals have endured the trials of separation, the fear of battle, the agony of loss, and the stresses of homecoming. There are riveting accounts of battles, anecdotes describing lighter moments shared with comrades, touching inquiries about sweethearts and families, as well as more somber and philosophical musings about life and death. Each is introduced with a note explaining who wrote it, the circumstances under which it was written, and, if known, the fate of the writer. Although these letters and e-mails were all written in times of war, they transcend the subject of armed conflict--anyone going through a difficult moment will find inspiration and courage in these words.--From publisher description.
