Reviews - What do customers think about Blessings from the Battlefield?

I would recommend this book  Mar 18, 2007
I would recommend this book because it has many great stories of faith both on and off the battlefield.
A positive blessing from the terror of the battlefields  Apr 7, 2003

The editors give a series of brief vignettes shared by priests who minister to those who are preparing for, conducting, or recovering from one of man's greatest inhumanities to man. You will find people who have been transformed by something positive which shines forth just when you think things are at their worst.

I have to tell you this book reminds me of the Nurses' sculpture at the Vietnam Memorial in D.C. The nurses are holding an injured soldier and caring for him, while one of them is looking up for the airevac to arrive. I was greatly moved by this sculpture, which seems to beautifully portray the fact that in the middle of this depraved, frightening, almost hopeless environment, human beings still have the courage and the dignity to care for one another.

This book should brighten your day and give you hope.

Real Heroes  Jan 6, 2003
With an introduction and chapter by Archbishop Edwin O'Brien of the Archdiocese for Military Services for the US, this collection of concise first-hand accounts of military chaplains and those they serve provides a glimpse into real lives of real heroes. This little book takes but an hour to read and will fill you with indelible images of men of faith. Chaplains on the front lines, serving Mass at a makeshift 'chapel', the sound of explosives being ignored while distributing Communion. Servicemen requesting a chaplain to find them in the jungle so they can receive the sacraments. Spiritually edifying and truly patriotic, this book is literally about faith in action, about meeting Christ- even when hell breaks out all around you. There is no other book like it in print today. Highly recommended for those considering a call to the military chaplaincy, to service in the US Armed Forces, or the family members of such persons. Real hope. Real courage. Real heroes. Read it!
