Description of Battlefields & Blessings: Stories of Faith and Courage from the Korean War by Larkin Spivey
In "Stories of Faith and Courage from the Korean War" Larkin Spivey shows real people fighting and living through a difficult conflict and almost forgotten era of American history. His stories are presented in a daily devotional format with scripture readings each day, revealing both the routine and the astounding ways in which God acts to empower believers and answer doubts. Every person of faith will come closer to God through these pages, and religious skeptics will see many of their own questions explored in depth.
Spivey also presents a concise history of the Korean War with overviews, maps, and photographs giving new insights into why America fought this war and the incredible results over the following decades. Each month a different aspect of the conflict is emphasized, including the early history of Korea, introduction of Christianity, Japanese and Soviet occupations, the different campaigns of the war, and developments after the armistice.
This unique combination of front line drama, coupled with the broader historical context of the conflict, gives a picture of war and combat unavailable in other histories.
