Item description for A Table in the Presence: The Dramatic Account of How A U.S. Marine Battalion Experienced God's Presence Amidst the Chaos of the War in Iraq by Lt Carey H. Cash...

The chaplain with the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment shares the dramatic firsthand account of how these men experienced God's presence amidst the chaos of the war in Iraq.

Publishers Description

On April 10th, 2003, the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, faced with the task of seizing the presidential palace in downtown Baghdad, ran headlong into what Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North called, "the worst day of fighting for U.S. Marines." Hiding in buildings and mosques, wearing civilian clothes, and spread out for over a mile, Saddam Hussein's militants rained down bullets and rocket propelled grenades on the 1st Battalion. But when the smoke of the eight-hour battle cleared, only one Marine had lost his life. Some said the 1st Battalion was incredibly lucky. But in the hearts and minds of the Marines who were there, there was no question. God had brought them miraculously through that battle.

As the 1st Battalion's chaplain, Lieutenant Carey Cash had the unique privilege of seeing firsthand, from the beginning of the war to the end, how God miraculously delivered, and even transformed, the lives of the men of the 1st Battalion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Table In The Presence?

Makes you proud  Feb 8, 2007
This was such a refreshing look at the realities of life in the war zone know as Iraq. This is an unadultary look at the life of a Marine Chaplain and the fine men and women he serves in the hell know as Iraq. It was a great book to read as a pastor and even a better book to give to a young husband and father as he shipped out to serve our country in Iraq. Buy it Read it, before you believe the next story from the news media, about why we need to cut and run
A good book from someone who was there.  Jan 3, 2007
This is a medium to smallish sized war memoir written by a Navy Chaplain who was attached to a section of Marines at the beginning of Gulf War 2. It is well written and relatively easy to read. The conclusion may leave you wanting to ask, "What happened next?" Of course, the war is still being waged at this time. I met the author and he is what you would expect of an officer, gentleman, and man of God. I enjoyed it and got another copy for my dad. Enjoy!
Chaplain to Chaplain  Dec 10, 2006
It has been about a year since I read this book. Chaplain Cash was able to remind me of images of my own experiences in Iraq. The key to understanding how profound this book is to remember that when he went into Iraq...he didn't know what to expect. None of us knew.

When I was recalled to active duty after being out for seven years, I was terrified and almost requested my bishop to remove my endorsement. Through prayer and listening, I reluctantly went. I am embarassed to say that I even complained during the long journey to Fallujah Iraq in September of 2004. I was attached with 1ST FSSG Marines serving as the lone Catholic Priest in the area. I found the book on a shelf in our small closet sized office for the chaplains where I had just experienced an incoming rocket that tore into a Marine 30 yards away from me. I walked with the Marine as his blood stained my hands. There wasn't the time to read the book while in Iraq, but I saw it at the exchange and read it in one sitting. It helped me in the healing process to see how other Christians of other denominations read and experience the fog of war.

Chaplain Carey Cash gives us an incredible insight into a very terrible war. God hates all war. The fact that this war doesn't fit the "just war theory" makes it all the more horrific. The body guard (RP) of Carey Cash was with me and protected me also. Let's pray for peace.

The FDR Memorial in Washington says it all:

After personally receiving over 1500 casualties and 81 deaths (of which 12 died in my arms), it was refreshing and humbling to come back to earth and see how a brother chaplain ministered to a few casualties. This was the beginning of the war. This work is invaluable. I do agree with those who use caution. I also ministered to Iraqi Muslims who had no country to help them through their debilitating injuries and grief. One Iraqi Soldier cried in my arms after he realized his buddy (the father of nine) was going over to mortuary affairs instead of the hospital. His tears burned my soul. Carey would probably do the same...and may be back in Iraq.
God's Presence  Nov 5, 2006
Actually, I bought this as a gift for someone, who needed to understand that God is always near us, even when we wonder about that fact. This book is about the Iraqi War, of course, and our men and women, who face war head on. It also tells us of the role of our Chaplains in war, as they minister right at the front-lines, to those who need assurance, in the heat of battle, of God's Presence.
civil religion at its worst  Aug 4, 2006
This is probably the 40th combat memoir I've read and it's the most embarrassing. The writer says, along with a lot of other nonsense, that "God has the heart of an infantryman." This from a clergyman. The author makes no distinctions between Christianity and the mission of the Marine Corps; he writes of Operation Iraqi Freedom as if it were Joshua in Canaan all over again. He credits God for victory, but is left with weak cliches when it comes to American battle deaths--of the "God has a plan" variety. In the author's view, God's people are the Marines; whoever is fighting the Marines must be the enemy of God. That really is the author's astoundingly simplistic view of the world. This book is another example of the brainlessness that pervades American evangelicalism.
