Editorial Reviews

Review

For those seeking to write more personal and less institutional, cultural, or political studies—and for anyone interested in the Vietnam War--Bringing God to Men offers a foundational investigation of the subject.--Journal of American History

A major achievement. . . . Whitt has provided an excellent resource for understanding the impact of Vietnam on the modern chaplaincy, and an excellent defense of chaplaincy against its critics. All military chaplains, especially those in supervisory roles, should read this work.--Cercles

A detailed account of chaplains during the Vietnam War. . . . [A]n interesting review of an often overlooked aspect of the conflict.--On Point: The Journal of Army History

Highly recommended. All levels/libraries.--Choice

Review

A well-researched and significant addition to scholarship surrounding religion and the Vietnam War. This is a unique look at military chaplains, especially in examining how they had a foot in two worlds: the domestic religious/denominational scene and the military. It will appeal to historians of the 1960s and 1970s and scholars in religious studies and military history.--David E. Settje, author of Faith and War: How Christians Debated the Cold and Vietnam Wars|Whitt argues that while chaplains did struggle with how to define their religious faith, they generally found their faith compatible with their military obligations. This was possible primarily because they focused on pastoral rather than prophetic roles. The book is well conceived, well organized, and well written, and should appeal to people interested in religion and religious history, military history, and the history of the Vietnam War era.--Mitchell Hall, Central Michigan University

A must-read book. The first person accounts used as evidence are powerful stories that make this book memorable.

I was looking more for first person accounts of the actual chaplains, this is more a overall report of how the system worked. To be honest I only read about the first third; it was so incredibly boring I just closed it and moved to different book. I gave it three stars only because it probably is a good book if you needed a technical manual of how the chaplain program worked in a war more than 40 years ago. If you are looking for some inspiring stories of the chaplains and their lives in Vietnam then move on, this is not that book. I was pretty disappointed.
