Faith in the Fog of War: Stories of Triumph and Tragedy in the Midst of War

by Chris Plekenpol

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt


Faith In the Fog of War is a one-of-a-kind devotional. Each chapter is about three pages long, geared for service men and veterans. It applies biblical principles to the daily lives of soldiers who are fighting the war on terror. Anyone who has a loved one overseas will find this to be helpful. At the end of each chapter, author Captain Chris Plekenpol gives biblical insight through his military experiences in Iraq.

I liked using this book as a morning devotional. It opened my eyes to what the men and women over in Iraq go through to protect freedom. Faith In The Fog Of War explains life as it goes on over in the war in Iraq, and questions that are raised by the soldiers who see pain day in and day out. The author reiterates throughout that being a Christian helped him to get through it all. It was interesting to read of men who weren’t Christians who opened the Bible and memorized Scripture looking for answers to help them through their day. There will always be questions. Faith In The Fog Of War provides a level of understanding. – Josiah Wells, Christian Book

Book Jacket:

You want the flare of your faith to burn as intensely as a fire on the battlefield. That means digging into God’s truth regardless of the chaos raging around you. These devotions are written by a man who had considered war something that someone else always did, and was then himself deployed to Iraq as a company commander. From the frontlines of the blackest days and in the face of inexplicable suffering, you’ll discover the heart of the question, “Why, God?” and its often unsettling answer. Because in war, as in contemporary America , reality involves struggle, trial, and triumph. Let God meet you in the midst of life’s nonsense to find the peace that is a crucial part of His impeccable plan.
