THE CONFEDERATE SOLDIER'S POCKET MANUAL OF DEVOTIONS
Charles Todd Quintard

This is a reprint of two popular Confederate battlefront spiritual aides.

In the 1980s, the Army Chaplain Corps adopted the credo 'Nurture the living/Care for the wounded/Honor the dead'. It summarizes more than 200 years of chaplain ministry with soldiers during war and peace. C. T. Quintard's "Soldier's Pocket Manual of Devotions" was one Civil War chaplain's expression of the hope and faith on which the credo is built.

In 1861, Chaplain Quintard of the 1st Tennessee Regiment marched off to care for his soldiers as they joined the Army of Virginia. His "Soldier's Pocket Manual of Devotions" was a very popular and widely distributed devotional manual used by many Confederate soldiers. In his booklet "Balm for the Weary and Wounded" (1864), Quintard reached back often to the writers of the 'Oxford Movement', which was his theological underpinning. In addition to familiar prayers, collects, and hymns from the "Book of Common Prayer", he adds poems, sermons, and religious texts of this movement. Quintard believes God's Spirit provides that balm through the teachings and sacraments of the church that enables the human spirit to prevail.

Students of the Civil War, reenactors, collectors, historians, and theologians will find these volumes of immeasurable value.

Although this is written for young children, parents and teachers will find this story tugging at their hearts, as they see the value and integrity of all creatures of our God and King.

In this second BO BOOK Bo meets a real-life hero from the Iraq War, Noah Galloway who lost an arm and leg while serving his country. Noah has persevered to become a national hero to thousands who have heard him speak about overcoming disabilities. One purpose of the book is to share how one can overcome trials that are sent as a test from the Lord.

Please pray for Noah as doors continue to fly open all over the country, and as he begins to speak about this book. Pray for him as he will be facing new challenges even more dangerous than what he faced in Iraq.

A PRAYER FOR ALL IN THE SERVICE OF OUR COUNTRY

O Almighty Lord God, who neither slumberest nor sleepest; Protect and assist, we beseech thee, all those who at home or abroad, by land, by sea, or in the air, are serving this country, that they, being armed with thy defence, may be preserved evermore in all perils; and being filled with wisdom and girded with strength, may do their duty to thy honour and glory; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

"Thoughts for Young Men is pure spiritual gold." - Jerry Bridges

It deserves to be widely read and circulated, and will do spiritual good to every reader." - Sinclair Ferguson

Although written over a century ago, the message is right up-to-date." - John R.W. Stott

THE SOLDIER'S CATECHISM
Virtuous Warriors in an Age of Terror
A Manual for the Spiritual Fitness of the US Armed Forces
Michael E. Cannon, Jr.

Michael Cannon has served for many years as a Military Chaplain, and has both seen the need for this Manual and acted to meet that need. He has done tremendous research in gathering materials for this "Soldier's Catechism" including the following:

(1) The Soldier's Catechism used in Oliver Cromwell's "New Model Army"

(2) The Soldier's Pocket Bible which comes from the same period of time, and contains hundreds of passages centered around themes addressed to the soldier.

(3) Significant quotations from the Creeds and Confessions of the Church of Jesus Christ

"The Soldier's Catechism, although not infallible as the Word of God, has become to me alike the protective sheath for the Soldiers sword of the Spirit (Eph 6:17). This daily help encourages me to mediate on the whole counsel of God as revealed in Scripture from the vantage point of one who must prepare and lead Soldiers into both physical and spiritual combat. The Soldier's Catechism emboldens my spiritual expeditionary endurance as I wrestle "against the rulers of darkness of this age" as a warrior in God's Church triumphant. My hope is the Soldier's Catechism will be an encouragement to you as we fight the good fight along side each other." - Colonel Michael C. Cloy, Infantry, US Army

"I highly recommend this tool to encourage our great American Soldiers, Airmen, Sailors, Marines and Coast Guardians. In these days of danger and intense service to our country, a means of reminding our troops of their Hope and Joy is very much needed. This time-honored means of instruction is bound to encourage men and women to "glorify God and enjoy Him forever!" - CH (COL-P) Douglas E. Lee, U.S.Army Assistant Chief of Chaplains for Mobilizations and Readiness

"The Rev. Michael Cannon's Soldier's Catechism succeeds wonderfully in modernizing the classic Cromwellian Soldier's Catechism for use by the 21st century soldier. The updated questions and answers accompanied by the English Standard Version (ESV) biblical text successfully engage the modern soldier, are directly applicable to contemporary military tactics, and address the issues of present-day warfare." -the Rev. Richard M. Edwards, PhD, Senior Lecturer, Philosophy, University of Wisconsin Colleges

EVERY SOLDIER SHOULD HAVE A COPY OF THIS VOLUME!
