Stories of Faith and Courage from the Civil War
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 award this book five out of five pieces of bacon.
Terry R. Tuley is the senior pastor of a church in Knoxville, Tennessee. In addition to writing, he is a military historian who collect items from the Civil War period. He is a lover of books and collects rare religious books. This married father of three also enjoys hiking and fishing.
