|Spiritual, uplifting, and inspiring! Aug 9, 2009|
|Larkin Spivey's book is an inspirational, uplifting, spiritual work written against the backdrop of World War II. Spivey, himself a combat veteran, tells 365 true stories of faith and hope, set up in a one-per-day devotional format. Most stories contain quotes from the soldiers who lived them during the second world war, and each concludes with a scripture passage related to the story.|
I particularly liked the simple way Larkin told each soldier's (or sailor's, or airman's, or Marine's) story. Usually in one page, he set the stage, introduced the character, told the story, and explained the particular spiritual relevance. From privates to generals, allies to axis, warfighter and civilian, Larkin drew the most powerful stories together to produce a spiritual shield any prayerful soldier will count as a "must have" in his or her combat gear. It is a well laid out, simple read, with a gripping cover and appropriate pictures throughout. I also liked the way the page edges are ruffled, like an old bible, adding a subtle reminder of the inspirational nature of the book.
Highly recommended for any Christian military person or veteran who considers prayer, spirituality, and God an important part of his or her life. Also for their loved ones, or simply Christians in general.
|An American Legacy of Courage, Patriotism, and Faith Jun 27, 2009|
|"Stories of Faith and Courage from World War II" is packed with patriotism, in the midst of battle filled with rich poignant inspiring stories. Larkin Spivey has captured the essence of the intent of the "Battlefields & Blessings" series in this masterpiece of historical significance and devotional excellence.|
Spivey's training and his years of experience and service as an officer in the Marine Corps coupled with a long time professional interest in military history give him the credentials, insight, and a wealth of information to author this momentous undertaking. He has compiled stories that reveal the stamina, courage, and faith of men dedicated to fight for the freedom of their families and their fellow countrymen. As a lay leader in his church, Spivey has a background for bringing the under girding spiritual dimension into focus in the 365 stories included in this daily devotional guide. Spivey is ideally "ordained" to write this book.
A collection of maps and photos accompany this concise history of World War II with summaries of the American involvement in the Allies major military campaigns. Each of the one page stories found within the 365 daily devotionals are included in a logical time line in a unique way which adds relevance to each story of bravery.
This is an amazing compilation of real life stories brilliantly edited. "Stories of Faith and Courage from World War II" makes a perfect gift for the veteran of any war or their family members. This is a book that should be in every church and school library in America and on the required reading list of every serious history student.
