Overview

War-Worn Faith

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.

Why, God?

War screams the same questions whispered in everyday life. The battlefield explodes with the same tenacity of emotions that wretch our souls. Smoke fills the air just as doubt clouds our minds.

Are you on the frontlines of war overseas? Or perhaps your battle is personal, deep within. These devotions, penned by Captain Chris Plekenpol while on the battlefield in Iraq, expose the depths of inexplicable suffering as well as the heights of incredible victory in God.

Through every adversity and in any circumstance, you will find a still voice reminding you of God’s sovereignty…in war and peace.



“Faith forged in the crucible of combat! Chris Plekenpol is a warrior and he has compiled a great guide for victory in the battles we all face.”

Oliver L. North

Host of “War Stories” on Fox News and author of The Assassins

“There is no theory here. Just the battle-tested insights of a soldier who has learned to trust his heavenly Father in the valley of the shadow of death. You are going to love this book.”

Andy Stanley

Pastor, North Point Community Church

“Amazing encouragement from the heart of the battle!”

Story Behind the Book

“I began writing devotionals as both a preparation for seminary and as a ministry tool during my service in Korea . At first, I sent them only to a few people. Then, as I wrote more frequently, I received e-mails requesting my devotions. I continued writing during my deployment to Iraq , tackling such issues as life in combat as well as the triumph of God in the battle. My purpose in writing this book is to further God’s work in my life by ministering to others through my experience in the heart of the battle.” —Chris Plekenpol

Meet the Author

Chris Plekenpol earned his mechanical engineering degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1999. His baptism in December of the same year marked a drastic change in his perspective on the army and life. Chris was deployed to Iraq in 2004 as a tank company team commander responsible for one hundred men and 85 million dollars worth of equipment. Chris, unfortunately, lost six men under his command. God has called Chris into the ministry, and after resigning from the army, he plans to attend Dallas Theological Seminary.

    so inspired and encouraged!

    chris offers a completely fresh look at the war in iraq, as well as the war that goes on each day in every one of us, trying to live triumphantly in a world that seems set against us doing so. I was so encouraged by his honesty and the personal glimpse he gives into his own thoughts and feelings while he was in iraq. If you want to be inspired, READ THIS BOOK!
