Chaplain Tony, an lds military chaplain, is called into service from Germany to Iraq. While serving in Iraq, Anthony W. Horton learns and shares what it is to be more Christ-like. He grows to love his fellow man, not only those in the US Army, but also the Iraqis. With prayer and faith he leads and loves those he serves. There were many "a-ha!" moments for me while reading this book; as in "a-ha!", that is what Christ would have me to do! Good book1!

I confess, my motivation for reading this book was my personal interactions with the author. Tony Horton is an amazing Army chaplain, father, friend, husband, soldier, priesthood holder, and author. The book wasn't at all what I expected. Threaded throughout his personal experiences in Iraq is a fascinating religious history of the Iraqis one has to experience first hand to know. Thanks for sharing it with us, Tony.
