Item description for Finding Faith in the Fury: One Soldier's Faith Challenging Journey Through Operation Iraqi Freedom by Frank Selden...
Overview "Many people believe that there are no atheists in the foxhole. I found that proverb significantly false. More soldiers struggled with their faith as a result of our experiences than chose to believe in God." Books have already been written about the military endeavors and humanitarian efforts of Operation Iraqi Freedom. Frank Selden's focus is not what happened or why it happened but rather what he believes about God, himself, and the world around him after living through the experience.

Great Book, Great Message Jul 28, 2008
Frank's book is in journal form with a day to day account of life in Iraq. His message is so clear. He is an ordained minister and still shows us his human side. Anger, frustration, pain, stress, and a true sense of FAITH. He is a straight forward, no holes barred writer. He is honest and to the point. This will make a great read for anyone and will help you with your Faith issues. Thanks Frank
Up Close And Personal Account... Sep 19, 2007
I first became acquainted with Frank Selden on the opinion page in my local newspaper. I was intrigued by his "up close and personal" account of the war in Iraq. I appreciated his honest and transparent approach journaling what he saw before his very eyes. In reading his book I felt like I got to know the heart of a man willing to sacrifice his life for the safety of our country. You will walk in his shoes through his spiritual journey, hear of his love for the Iraqi people, all the while missing his family tremendously. And the less than pristine living conditions, well you just have to read that for yourself. "Finding Faith In The Fury" gave me a new appreciation for the service and sacrifice our men in uniform provide to protect our great nation! My hat is off to them!
A Must Read Dec 10, 2006
Frank's journals were very descriptive; he paints numerous pictures of Iraq with his writing style that I can visualize these places. This book is enjoyable to read as it is written in journal form. There are splashes of politics, religion, history and daily life innertwined through the book. This is a good book for anyone who knows someone in the serving in the military, or planning to visit Iraq.
An Outstanding, Inspiring, and Highly Recommended Book! Nov 22, 2006
This outstanding book is very touching, introspective, and thought-provoking. I highly recommend Finding Faith in the Fury to everyone who seeks to better understand how our response to the challenges in life shapes our destiny. Moreover, this book also demonstrates how our choices and responses touch everyone whom we, as individuals, ever come to know.
In essence, this inspiring book demonstrates how our faith is not about religion, per se, but is about the journey that leads one to find their own faith amidst the adversity, atrocities, joy, and triumphs that we all, as individuals, experience in our life at one point or another in whatever manner those moments come forth. As such, this book is highly recommended as it is highly applicable to every person, everywhere, in any situation.
