Book Description

You may be in the military preparing to deploy to a combat zone. You may be a combat vet. Maybe you're a family member of a vet. Or maybe you are a "civilian". Whatever or whoever you are in this life, if you belong to Jesus Christ, then you are a soldier of the cross on a deployment to a place called "Earth". Don't waste your deployment!

5.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Blessing to a Stay at Home Mom February 23, 2012
To say that I am far from someone with any type of military background is an understatement. To illustrate, my bookmark that I used for the last half of this book happened to be a DISNEY Princess sleeping bag tag that my children absentmindedly left on the endtable. I am a stay-at-home mom and homeschooler of 2 small children, but stage and station of life is not what allowed me to connect with the author's message. We share the same heavenly Father, being bought with the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ who was raised by the Father after being dead for 3 days, to prove that He had all authority to forgive my sin debt. I am alive in Christ by His Spirit and love Him where He has placed me. I have never been deployed in the military sense and never expect to be, but I would be a fool to think that I do not live in the middle of a warzone, with a very real enemy that would love to destroy me and my joy in Christ at every moment!
This book encouraged me on a level at which it would take a critique to explain. I would not hesitate to hand this to any person, any where, that could read English! He has an amazing gospel presentation at the beginning so it would even be great for someone that wouldn't identify themself as a Christian or know much about Christian language. I think that the author shows an amazing spiritual maturity for his age, which only comes from the wisdom that the Lord gives. There were not any points that I felt his theology was shaky or pragmatic, but was solid through and through. I am so thankful that this book has been printed. This would be amazing used as a book study for small groups in churches, to encourage unity among members. He uses military "battle-buddy" analogies that could certainly be applied to the members of the local church body.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Reflection of Our Lord Jesus Christ January 5, 2012
It is not possible to write about our Lord Jesus Christ to this magnitude and accuracy without being led by the Holy Spirit. This book presents the gospel of Jesus Christ and the saving grace planned by the God-Head brilliantly. It is not surprising though that God used Mark in this way when you come to know him personally; for then you will see that Mark serves without any attempt to gain the glory, for he understands well that all the glory belongs to God and lives his life as such. Don't Waste your Deployment will touch anyone who reads it, even if you are a Pastor. Mark never lost my attention nor went off topic and I have to say I really enjoyed this book. Without any exaggeration, this one goes on the top shelf with "Crazy Love" by Francis Chan or "Radical" by David Platt. In closing, I am very critical of any book that takes away from the grace of God or the deity of Christ and in Mark's book I know God is pleased. It presents our Savior right in line with God's word. Glory to God for this one as I told Mark, it's too good to be written without the Holy Spirit leading him.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read for every Christian August 1, 2011
By John
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Don't think this book is only for servicemen and women. Sure, there are stories of actual combat experience in Iraq. But Mark uses his and his fellow soldiers' experiences as teaching moments on what it means to be a Christian and how to apply the teachings of Christ. And not just in combat but in our everyday lives as well. We all have our challenges, although not necessarily as harsh and demanding as combat, but everyday challenges can come up against our beliefs, our faith. Whether deployed to a combat area, or deployed to our jobs, school, or anywhere else where we come up against "life", this book will teach you how to meet those challenges while maintaining your faith.

As a note, I know Mark very well and I know his background and family. And I can tell you that they don't just preach the gospel, they live it every day and every hour of every day. Mark did not come home from Iraq with a new faith in Christ, he was raised with it, took it with him, then returned with his faith intact.
