Iraq, 2004... two enemies - a Nazi priest and an American G.I. - who served Communion Mass in a Belgian sanctuary in 1944... the prescient letter from a Civil War army major to his beloved wife, one week before his death at Bull Run... the 21st-century toddler with a jaw-dropping spiritual connection to a war hero of Iwo Jima... and dozens more.  A war chronicle like no other, God in the Foxhole affirms, for military buffs and readers from all walks of life, the power of faith in the face of adversity.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"God, You know I haven't been good about praying.  I’ve only prayed for others and not myself.  Well, I felt Your presence in the plane.  You or Someone told me to go for it to reach the Gulf.  You also told me when to eject.  They have been shooting at me and either they are bad shots or You haven’t let them get lucky.  Now, I need a little more help to get out of his mess.  I sure would appreciate any help You would care to give.  Well, that’s all I have to say.  Amen.”

 

Praying appeared to be the turning point.  Two Marine rescue helicopters arrived.  Colonel Levin outsmarted his tormentors by dropping a smoke flare in the water next to his raft to give them something to shoot at while he dived overboard and swam away to be horse-collared out of the sea.  He was airborne in a helicopter and gone before enemy artillery could rebracket.

 

Thank You, God.
