Editorial Reviews

Review

I've long considered Larkin Spivey a mentor, warrior, leader, and friend. 
His thoughtful devotional [book in the] Battlefields & Blessings® [series], Stories of Faith and Courage from the Vietnam War, links moments in time with timeless wisdom. This collection is "a gift a day"—recounting Vietnam experiences that connect and acknowledge all who have had the privilege of serving this great Nation.

General Peter Pace, USMC (Retired) 16th Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff

Battlefields and Blessings Vietnam provides 365 short stories to help understand the war experience in relation to the Scriptures. The short time it takes to read each story allows plenty of time to contemplate its meaning.
These stories of Faith and Courage have the ability to help a warrior better understand his war experience in relation to his beliefs.

This book will feed your heart, your soul, and your faith. If I were going to take just one book (besides the bible) into battle with me, this would be the one I would put into my Army duffle bag. The stories are truly uplifting and sacred. The author Larkin Spivey has captured the spiritual pulse of combat.

if you have a son/daughter or father/mother or husband/wife or any friend or relative in the military services this would be the perfect gift to send them. I also highly recommend adding this book to your personal library. Inspiring and entertaining as well. The author has crafted something of great value for all readers and people of faith!

Something needed; something done. The stories of faith and courage during and after the Vietnam War are stories you can devour by reading through the book entirely, or reading day by day to grasp each story’s worth with applicable Holy Bible scripture alongside. You’ll read personal accounts from the lowest ranking “new guy” to the battle-hardened general officer about the frustration of fighting an invisible enemy; of praying for “One more day, dear God. One more day.” You’ll read stories from those who saw disturbing sights and questioned God about the meaning and what their purpose was for being there. You’ll read that the sound of helicopters meant to some that help was on the way and to others that casualties were on the way. You’ll read about how lives were touched at just the sight of the cross on a chaplain’s cap. The POW endurance stories and stories from families who lost loved ones will touch your heart and strengthen your soul.

Indeed, Stories of Faith and Courage from the Vietnam War is something needed for those who have endured any war as well as those who care about loved ones that hurt because of war. It is something done for anyone who seek answers.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in military history and the role of personal faith in a warrior's life. Sadly, Nam got a bad rap and many of our soldiers were stereotyped in a negative light. This book goes behing the scenes to see the heart of many of these heros!

More About the Author

I am a retired Marine that came to Christianity late in life. I have continued a lifelong interest in military history, but I now write about God's perspective on our history and the power of faith among those have fought our wars. As a former religious skeptic I always have the doubter in mind when I write.
