The collection include: letters by two brothers who fought on opposing sides of the Civil War; a prophetic letter by Rabbi David Goode, one of the famed Immortal Chaplains who gave his life for his fellow soldiers; a lighthearted letter by a World War II nurse who met the Pope; and a profound and impassioned reply to the timeless question, “Where is God in wartime?” by a doctor serving in Iraq.
“Behind the Lines is the result of Andrew Carroll's unprecedented trip around the world to seek out these gripping, insightful, and, in so many cases, breathtaking letters. This is a book born of great passion. This is a book with tremendous heart and soul.” —James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys
A portion of his proceeds from Grace Under Fire will be used to send free copies of the book to U.S. military chaplains around the world.

Come see who made the list. I am still taking recommendations, and this week I will begin to speak on each book on the list in more detail. Would love to plug into a bookclub. If you belong to a bookclub contact me for more details.

Blessings to you on Memorial Day. Blessings to my cousins: Telly, Isaiah, and Jonathan[Marines] serving in Iraq and Afghanistan.
In honor of our fallen soldiers this post is open for you to leave prayer requests, memoriums, and whatever(as long as it doesn't involve Rosie's departure from The View.) When I'm home my family and I clean my uncles[all veterans] graves. I also like to go the church's prayer room, bake something sweet, go downtown for fireworks, and watch military movies on this day. Do you watch movies? Which ones would you recommend?My recommendations are....here today at the Master's Artist.
