Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Kennedy, a longtime journalist, has assembled and edited 50 chapters' worth of stories from chaplains who serve or served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Their stories have the brevity and terse eloquence of real and lived experience; whether readers will derive hope or a more somber emotion from the hardships described is not easy to answer, but their tales are not distinguished by miracles, angels, or simple resolutions. VERDICT These candid accounts of remarkable luck and bloody catastrophe from dozens of noncombatant military men and women are moving and painful to read. Recommended for militaria collections and regions where many have relatives who serve overseas.

    An Inspiration!

    After reading the book Miracles and Moments of Grace: Inspiring Stories from Military Chaplains by Nancy B. Kennedy, even I am reminded that our chaplains are much more than preachers for the military. They are a reminder of God's love, mercy, and grace.

    This book compiles true stories, real experiences from our military chaplains of yesterday and today. In each story, I saw God at work, whether it was through healing or comfort.


    Chaplains serve in such a vast capacity. They are more than preachers of God's word. They are symbols of His love and mercy. Our chaplains remind those they serve with of the hope found only in Jesus.

    Miracles and Moments of Grace is a wonderful book that is sure to touch the hearts of those who read it.
