Based on David Wolstenholm own life experiences as a member of the United States Marine Corp, this book reaches out to all Military people who are seeking spirituality in their lives.While specifically tailored to serviceman, this book can be grasped by all.

He draws attention to the parallels of trying to be a solider for the government and training to be a solider of Jesus Christ. I personally liked how Wolstenholm repeat

The book is written so well which creates the images in mind of an active battlefield. Though this is not a religious book at all, David has taken care to mix the incidents in this book with Christianity. The interconnection between Christianity and military life is fantastically pointed out in this. However I remarkably noticed that the author has maintained his own unique style of writing throughout the book. For me, it was a great, lovely read and I couldn't put it down till the end.

That being said, it would have been much easier to read if the theological statements were made more neutral when possible (when it is not essential to the point he is making). By no means a ...more

A must read! Searching in your faith? Believe in God? Having tough times in your life? If you’re looking for spiritual answers in your own life, then this a terrific and inspirational book for you!

Even though this book is mainly how the author found God through the military, I think the author’s journey finding God and his advice from personal experience will touch the hearts of many. His honest encounters with alcohol and drugs are indicative of the author’s humility, God’s love and mercy. I gi
