Timely Advice Apr 26, 2007
These are turbulent times for military service members and their families. Tom Neven knows this, appreciates the need of the hour, and has given timely advice in his book, On the Frontline. He begins with the chapter "The Power of Discipline---The Best Training comes through Hardship" and closes with the chapter "Finding God on the Frontline---There is an Answer to the Question of Eternal Meaning." This is relevant material! Particularly helpful are his summaries at the end of each chapter. We have used his suggestions in a hand-out for military couples at Christian marriage seminars. This is a must-read for all military service members who want to live a victorious Christian life.

On the Frontline: A Personal Guidebook for the Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual Challenges of Military Life By Tom Neven, Waterbrook Press, 2006, $13.95, ISBN 1-4000-7335-9
An old adage says "There are no atheists in foxholes." Yet after the exhilaration of surviving combat fades, how does the Sailor, Soldier, Airman, or Marine raised in a post-neo-modern, post-Christian culture deal with military life? Tom Neven offers advice--advice based on his experiences as a former Marine and the experiences of other veterans, some who survived combat but not the peacetime that followed. Neven's heart beats a steady rhythm for God and his fellow warriors. His counsel equips and feels like a dry, warm blanket thrown over the shoulders of a wet, cold friend. He covers the Big Five--Loneliness, Debt, Relationships, Sex, and Fear--with honesty and an understanding of human behavior. Neven offers solutions that go beyond a person's present physical, mental, and spiritual condition into a future state of personal integrity strengthened by an understanding of God's will and purpose. On the Frontline reads as a personal guidebook for military members and their families. The book fits in a battle-dress uniform pants pocket and deserves to fill as many as possible.
