Publishers Description "You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies." -Psalm 23:5 There are some places where you just don't expect to find God. For the men of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, downtown Baghdad was one of those places. Moving into the heart of Iraq and ever deeper into enemy territory, they found themselves face-to-face with the ruthless Iraqi Republican Guard and Fedayeen militia. But when the smoke cleared, God's touch was clearly visible. Serving as a chaplain to the U.S. Marines, Lieutenant Carey Cash had witnessed the miracles that began in the desert of northern Kuwait, and found their culmination in one of the fiercest battles of Operation Iraqi Freedom. With vivid detail and gripping emotion, Lt. Cash gives a firsthand account of this amazing story-how the men of an entire battalion found God in the presence of their enemies.

Must Read for Parents and Spouses Jan 11, 2007
This book was given to my brother, an Operation Iraqi Freedom veteran, as a Christmas gift. He could not read it because the memories were still too fresh and too disturbing. So he let me have first crack at it. I have since bought numerous copies and given them away to Marines, their wives, their parents and military supporters in the civilian community. At least one of those has gone on the buy multiple copies to share also.
This book is so powerful because it shares the amazing presence of God witnessed by American warriors in Iraq. I particularly like how the book is structured so that the author, a navy chaplain shares a Bible story with the reader and then parallels it with a similar first hand experience his Marine had in Iraq. If you wonder if prayer matters, this book will forever convince you that prayer makes a difference. Buy the book. Read it. And share it with others.
A Table in the Presence Jan 9, 2007
One of the top 5 books I have EVER read. First hand experience of the Honor, Courage, and Commitment of our Marines and Sailors. Lt. Carey Cash is a Godly man who truley "Walks the Walk". I Highly recommend this book, especially to my brothers and sisters in Christ and my brothers and sisters of the Navy/Marine Corps Team.
Wow! Nov 7, 2006
What a connection between God's promise of His presence and the correlation of the action in Iraq to Old Testament truths! Would recommend highly.
