Praise for Grace Under Fire
"Andrew Carroll has done a wonderful job bringing together letters from different individuals and different time periods, linked together by one common thread: a strong belief that God is in control, regardless of the outcome. Grace Under Fire brings the importance of faith on the battlefield front and center and is an inspiring reminder that none of us is alone, even in the most dire of circumstances." - Sara Horn, author of A Greater Freedom: Stories of Faith from Operation Iraqi Freedom and publisher of AGreaterFreedom.com.

“Personal letters from troops on the front lines are among the most honest and intimate expressions of the human heart. Through Andrew Carroll’s passion for preserving these letters we see history unfolding, heroes struggling with irresolvable dilemmas, and glimpses of God in the face of death. Anyone living with difficult circumstances will find in these letters the strength and grace to persevere. You may discover, as I have, that Grace Under Fire is one of the most inspirational books available today.” —Frank Selden, author of Finding Faith in the Fury


Grace Under Fire gives us a wonderful glimpse into the hearts of people who we pray for and respect greatly. You will find yourself experiencing every conceivable human emotion as you read these real life stories amidst the challenges of war. Andrew Carroll’s work helps us appreciate the heroic people who have fought bravely on behalf of our freedom. Read it and you will treasure your heritage as an American.”
Jim Graff, President of Significant Church Network



“For generations a letter from or to a loved one serving in uniform has been a lifeline back to the home front. Now, thanks to Andrew Carroll, we get a few small glimpses of those ‘connections of affection’—the ordinary insights, the humorous anecdotes, and the philosophical and spiritual musings of soldiers today and generations past. I found myself often stopping to ponder the lives of the men and the women who wrote these letters and the tremendous sacrifices some of them record. It’s a moving—and sobering—experience every American should undertake.”
Tom Neven, Marine Corps veteran and author of On the Frontline: A Personal Guidebook for the Physical, Emotional and Spiritual Challenges of Military Life



Praise for War Letters
“Andrew Carroll has given America a priceless treasure. These letters are intimate, deeply personal portraits of the courage, sacrifice, and sense of duty that made this country.” —Tom Brokaw

“Quite simply, this is one of the greatest, most riveting books of war letters I have ever read.” —Stephen E. Ambrose

Praise for Behind the Lines
“[A] stirring, moving, and sometimes hilarious collection.” —Mark Bowden, author of Black Hawk Down

Behind the Lines is the result of Andrew Carroll's unprecedented trip around the world to seek out these gripping, insightful, and, in so many cases, breathtaking letters. This is a book born of great passion. This is a book with tremendous heart and soul.” —James Bradley, author of Flags of Our Fathers and Flyboys

Praise for Operation Homecoming
Operation Homecoming brims with . . . personal anecdotes, showing us the human beings behind the headlines and beneath the body armor . . . This collection rings with truth, the sort of truth that mere observers of war find hard to capture.” —Washington Post (selected as one of the best nonfiction books of the year)

I appreciated reading about the spiritual aspect and how faith does bring hope and encouragement during times of struggle, loneliness, and pain.

I just finished reading this book today, and I was simply amazed at the accounts written by various soldiers from America's wars. I would love to use an excerpt or two for my reading classes in China, but alas, I borrowed a library book...! I would definitely recommend this book to any who want to know more about the sacrifices American soldiers have made to help preserve the liberties that they and their fellow countrymen enjoy, and for those who wish to know how war has affected the faith of those who have witnessed its desolation.

I thoroughly have enjoyed this book and have read it several times. I have used it several times as guided discussions in a classroom setting. I felt it an important part of our front line stories that I got copies for the chaplains on base. I have actually gone back and gotten some of Andrews earlier books and have come to realize that warfare itself has changed, the verbage we use has changed but the feelings and emotions are still the same.

Format: Hardcover
This is an outstanding book that I've read many times and shared with numerous friends of faith. The book, the works behind it, and the multiple intents for it are worthy of as much praise as can be heaped upon it. It's written for everyone: the common person who's never been to war, those have been or are in the thick of things overseas and especially the families of those who serve. It's a way to understand others thoughts and feelings as well as your own if you're in those circumstances.

Andrew Carroll has faith and a heart that is bigger than Texas in his desire to help others in their times of need to understand things bigger than themselves. This is one of his works in that human endeavor to make life better for others. A humanitarian award should be given to him for his desire to make life a little easier or better for others and to help others share their feelings over such harsh and emotional issues in life.

This is a must read for anyone concerned about war and the feelings that it invokes in service members, their families and even their friends. Read it for yourself and then share with others whom you know.

Grace Under Fire is BRILLIANT...simply BRILLIANT!

It is overwhelmingly touching, powerful and inspiring and any one of these letters will pierce your heart. I was profoundly moved by the e-mail written by the late David Bloom.

Through these letters of faith in GRACE UNDER FIRE, Andrew Carroll gives us a glimpse of our service men and women and their families; we read about what they had...what they never lost...and what it means to "have faith", feel its power, how it has changed them or how they have reconnected with their faith.

GRACE UNDER FIRE is no ordinary book--this is another literary treasure from Andrew Carroll; this is the book you hand deliver and say "You must read this."

Format: Hardcover
The threads of faith are smoothly woven by soldiers from the Revolutionary war through our current conflicts. Their personal letters written to loved ones are sensitive and plain spoken in the face of the terror of their war. Bravo to Andy Carroll for sharing these personal reflections. I found this book very inspiring!

Format: Hardcover
In these emotionally moving letters and anecdotes, the author reveals that paradox of faith in the most intense suffering. This is a work that will be enjoyed by the faithful and by historians alike. I have many friends who have experienced the worst horrors of war and can attest these same kinds of stories. There is nothing compared to hearing those stories from a friend but this work is as close to that personal connection many might make and well worth reading. The old adage that there are no atheists in foxholes does, indeed, hold a great deal of truth.
