The Faith of the American Soldier
What goes through the mind of an American warrior spiritually and religiously when facing the enemy? Treading on a subject where few books have gone, The Faith of the American Soldier examines the religious and spiritual issues in America's wars, and then considers what is lost to our military through a secular approach to battle. Stephen Mansfield, author of The Faith of George W. Bush, a New York Times best seller, records the faith reflections and testimonies of men and women who have fought on the front lines from Lexington to Iraq. Do men and women in battle revert to the faith of their youth, or do they gravitate to the spirituality around them? Do they lose all faith in the face of horror, or do they piece together an informal spirituality that simply gets them through the fight? Mansfield explores these questions through the lens of his deep respect for the military.
