As with works in this genre, each section covers a specific virtue and each page contains a relevant verse of Scripture, an associated quote and a short vignette on a related topic. I have defined five major categories that express the virtues of a Christian soldier. They are: Courage, Duty, Faith, Honor and Mercy.

Each of these is illustrated by some of the most inspirational stories to come out of the Civil War. There are forty of these uplifting devotions, as well as ten encouraging essays that address some of the subject matter in greater detail. I have also included a special sermon that was presented to Confederate soldiers in the field. This impassioned speech reinforces the power of the prayer warrior. Six biographical tributes to the South's most pious commanders follow and testify to the strength and spirit of the nineteenth century Christian soldier.

As a bonus, I have also enclosed a wonderful bible-study aid that will enable you to read the entire Good Book in one-year, cover-to-cover. A reading plan for 365-days of daily bread will enable the reader to apply the principles of these patriots in their own lives. Order now!
