This anthology captures the collective soul of chaplains who daily stand before soldiers engaged in combat and its aftermath. They are messages spoken on the battlefield and on the homefront, captured in worship services or at memorials, whispered in a soldier's ear, or shouted above the din of a truck's engine. They are words spoken to soldiers at an opportune time, reminding them that God is still present and still sovereign. They are often words of encouragement, of strength and hope; but they can also be words that address the immense struggle of the soul in the midst of pain or doubt.
