Compiled by Baptist pastor and Civil War enthusiast Terry Tuley, Battlefields & Blessings: Stories of Faith and Courage from The Civil War is a unique daily devotional for Christians - one that compiles true quotes and stories from Christians who served in the American Civil War. Each day of the year has a corresponding page with an anecdote concerning the uplifting power of faith, especially amidst a lethal war in which death by bullets, shrapnel, and disease were ever-present. These real-world examples of courage and faith, in the very words of the individuals who personally faced the dark hours of war, make Battlefields & Blessings a truly unforgettable means to contemplate God with each new dawn.

This is a well written devotional that I look forward to reading every day. It makes me realize that worshiping the Lord and reading his Word is just as important today as it was in the 1860's

Stories of Faith and Courage from the Civil War is another yearly devotional book, this time from the Civil War time period. Each starts with a quote from someone living at that time; men, women, children, soldiers, slaves, politicians and more. There is a Scripture as well as some commentary from Terry Tuley. This book offers an insight into the time period as well as the Christian faith.

This devotional is as captivating as the first one I reported on, Stories of Faith and Courage from World War II. It is very interesting to see the faith of our forefathers and how it impacted such a momentous time of our country's history. This book is not just from the military standpoint as there are quotes from and information about women and children, slaves, and plain old regular people. It helps to give a rounded view of the time. The faith of American citizens in this time of war was amazing. If you love history, this is a book you will enjoy for the historical twist as well as the faith enriching words from the past and of Tuley.

I received this book free from the publisher. All opinions are freely my own.

To anyone of the Christian persuasion who also is a civil war devotee, Rev. Terry Tuley's excellent devotional book is a sheer joy. Mining the fields of various university archives as well as normal resource avenues, Mr. Tuley has extracted interesting and moving stories and experiences of the men and women connected with the civil war, as well as the slaves affected by it. He brings to each an obvious correlation with one's life today, and juxtaposes the feelings of those men from long ago with our normal lives today, each one bolstered by a relevant verse and thought from the Bible. While his ministerial impact is obvious, his ability to write a good story and to properly insert source material makes this devotional book far from ordinary. It should be on the book shelf of every civil war addict!

As I have stated before I am a fan of History. Living in the Maryland and Virginia area is like a child's dream of a treasure trove... So when I had the opportunity to review for free from AMG publishers "Stories of Faith and Courage from the Civil War".

This book takes multiple stories of the Faith and Courage of folks like Gen. Lee and others. I loved the way this book broke down these stories into daily easy reads for each day of the year.

Here is what the publisher had to say:

The period from 1861-1865 proved to be one of the greatest periods of trial and suffering in our nations history. A significant lapse of time had passed since America had engaged in the horrors of war. After the war of 1812, little memory remained of the fact that war could be "hell." A veteran of the war with Mexico, General "Stonewall" Jackson wrote to his wife and said, "People who are anxious to bring on war don't know what they are bargaining for; they don't see all the horrors that must accompany such an event."
When the prospect of a War Between the States became a reality, the average age of a young soldier was twenty-two. To an aspiring young man who was bored with "life on the farm," the romanticism and exhilaration of battle was an allurement that soon tried the faith and physical stamina of all who crossed war's threshold. The threat of losing life and limb from a hailstorm of bullets and shrapnel was compounded by the ever-present danger of dysentery, and all sorts of diseases with little means for treatment. In spite of these frustrating circumstances, many of the soldiers found great consolation and relief through prayer and reading the Bible.

"Battlefields And Blessings" by Terry Tuley focuses on the Christians faith of various Civil War personalities: generals, privates, sergeants, wives, politicians, and other types of folks affected by the American Civil War.

The book is around 400 pages and contains a daily one page devotion for a whole year. Typically, the devotion will concern a particular person and how the person's experience can apply to the reader's life today. Usually there is a Bible verse for each daily devotion's theme.

While the book may be read during a year's time, I was so interested in the book that I read the title in 3 or 4 sittings.

Read, enjoy, and understand that Christians (North and South) experienced tragedy and trying times during our nation's most turbulent period.

Highly recommended.
