This book has been an enjoyable daily read. Blending historical insight and spiritual truth, it is truly a reminder from the voices of the past to keep pressing on for Christ. Even if history is not your favorite subject, the author brings out the characters from the past, and enables them to teach us how to follow Christ today.

This book will inspire you to the max! It is well written and has a balanced view of the Civil War. Tuley gives several stories of the atrocities committed against African Americans and reveals their great courage and faith in spite of abuse from wicked slave owners.

On the contrary to other viewers who may have not read the entire book, it does NOT spiritualize atrocities. Tuley uncovers several letters from generals in the civil war who despised the war and called it "judgment on the United States for it's allowance of a horrid sin such as slavery". The sinful heart of man is universal, and the grace of God softens and deepens faith despite the horrors of any age, specificially this dark period in America's heritage. It's a well done insight into how people from another time dealt with horror and pain: a universal transcendent evil man has suffered since the days of Adam. A very good read that puts suffering into perspective under God's perfect plan.

This book is excellent! Tuley brings forth faith examples of both northern and southern men and women who exemplified strong Christian faith during a very dark time in American history. Tuley's treatment of the remarkable faith of these "Christian Soldiers" stir the heart and inspire the Christian to draw near to the Lord.

The first devotion is a writing of Robert E. Lee as he's posed on a horse and entitled "The Tenderness and Compassion of General Robert E. Lee" - I can assure you many slaves and now their desendents did not revere him nor remember his contribution to the Civil War as tender nor compassionate. Give me a break, please do not "spiritualize" these atrocities against Black Americans with the sins of this country's fore-fathers. Definitely lost sight of what it meant to "love your brother" and this book does not help in the healing of this nation.
