Item description for Finding God in the Shadows: Stories from the Battlefield of Life by Marsha Hansen & Peter A. Huchthausen...

Overview
The stories in this volume are of men and women who exhibit moral courage and who take responsible action despite hardships, privations, or the burdens of making life and death decisions for others. Most of the stories are set against the backdrop of war or conflict and incorporate parallel historical moments from the Bible that help frame the questions raised by the contemporary story. By searching the concrete realities through which many people of faith encounter God, the authors encourage a closer reading of and reflection on the stories in the Bible. We can meet God, they say, most distinctly through ordinary means. The stories include: Battle of Pilar Pass, Stalingrad, And the Blind Shall See, The Meek Shall Inherit the Earth, Golden Rule in Action, Private Jake McNiece and the Dirty Dozen, Father Forgive Them, The Return, In God We Trust, Never Walk Alone, Ocean Tap, Boat People, and more. Each chapter includes questions for reflection and discussion.

Reviews - What do customers think about Finding God in the Shadows: Stories from the Battlefield of Life?

A profoundly moving introspection  Feb 5, 2008
Former naval officer Marsha Hansen and former naval captain Peter A. Huchthausen present Finding God in the Shadows: Stories from the Battlefield of Life, tales of the largely unknown and unsung men and women serving in the military. All the stories are true; some speak of severe situations and moments of desperation on the battlefield, yet their purpose is neither to shock nor to promote a specific theology, but rather to explore issues of faith and ethics through the life experiences of people who have been changed by moments of crisis. The stories' settings range from World War II, to the Vietnam War, to the Cold War. Each story is followed by a biblical reflection that contrasts the characters and the tale against biblical events. Finding God in the Shadows is a profoundly moving introspection about the light that faith can bring to life's darkest moments, and is highly recommended.
