Delivered by Angels: God's Providence for an American Soldier in Iraq

Does God still intervene in the affairs of men? Can this intervention be earned by a man who is blessed as a result of it? How does a Christian man reconcile his faith with taking up arms against an enemy intent on killing him? What is life like for an American infantryman in Iraq? Is prayer important? These are a few of the questions and issues addressed in Delivered by Angels: God's Providence for an American Soldier in Iraq, co-authored by Specialist Brian Otis and his father, Pastor John Otis, and published by Triumphant Publications.

This book is essentially one man's chronology of God's saving action towards him during battle, juxtaposed with a biblical perspective of those same events. Countless books and narratives have been introduced to the world by men and women who have served in various degrees and importance in military conflicts throughout the history of the world. It's impossible for me to enumerate how many I've read, in addition to those that are in my own library, I can, however, count on one hand those that are as unashamedly and brazenly Christian as this book.
