God's Hiddenness in Comba. I wish I had read this book before going into combat. It would have made me a better chaplain and saved me from some of the empty platitudes about God's presence in battle that I had absorbed from movies, novels and pulpits and sometimes passed on to Soldiers. It would not have saved me from the grief, but it would have given me a more realistic view of what was happening around me, and to me. I found myself reading ALL the footnotes - there are many. It was like getting two books in one as you follwed the currents of thought deeper and deeper into a profound mystery.

The primary question at the heart of this book is: 'Where is God for the person in combat?' According to one well-known saying, there are no atheists in foxholes. Yet it is difficult for believers in a personal and caring God to locate God's place in the world of war. Another common saying -that 'war is hell'-seems more accurate if one accepts the basic definition of hell as God's absence.

The primary question at the heart of this book is: 'Where is God for the person in combat? ' According to one well-known saying, there are no atheists in foxholes. Yet it is difficult for believers in a personal and caring God to locate God's place in the world of war. Another common saying --that 'war is hell'--seems more accurate if one accepts the basic definition of hell as God's absence. The complication here is that some combatants do sense God's presence. This study draws from numerous interviews, memoirs, letters, and archival materials, and reflecting on the crucifixion of Christ to consider how God can be both present in, and absent from, the world of war.

This book is well written and wonderfully researched. The authors use Soldier's own narratives to make clear the difficulty in maintaining religious belief in the face of combat. Coming near the conclusion that "God goes AWOL" in times of War the focus shifts and the fact comes through that even though "War is Hell," "Yet, God is there." Not the self-serving ang jingoistic memiors often written by chaplains and self-proclaimed holy warriors, this volume focuses heavily on a God that meets soldiers in their time of need in spite of the war not because of it. Very well done examination of ideas few even contemplate. A must read for anyone of faith that is a combat veteran or knows those who are.

The author presents a theology of the cross in a stark and vivid manner, which rings true for me. If you are a Soldier you will profit from this book. If you know a Soldier he or she needs you to read this book.

I found myself reading ALL the footnotes - there are many. It was like getting two books in one as you follwed the currents of thought deeper and deeper into a profound mystery. The editing and arranging of the book hits on all the superstitions and mystery of combat and how Soldiers react to it and then spotlights their attempts to invoke God's presence or deny His presence.
