Author examines pervasive need for spirituality in the armed forces
LONGWOOD, FL-At this time there is a crying need for chaplains in the Army, Navy, and Marines, says Chaplain Beverly James Barnett, author of the newly released For God and Country: Memoirs of a Military Chaplain ($19.99, paperback, 978-1-60477-891-5). The military chaplaincy is particularly critical in this time of war against Islamic extremism. That is why Barnett found it necessary to pen a revised second edition of his earlier book, Air Force Chaplain. The book provides chaplains, other military leaders, and the broader population of godly Americans with a better understanding of spirituality in the American armed forces. This astonishingly candid yet reverential glimpse into the real world of military chaplaincy will resonate with all who desire to strengthen our military and our nation.
Says the Penn Valley, California, native, "[There is a] great need for evangelical chaplains?'particularly at this time?'in the military services. The military chaplaincy is particularly critical in this time of war against Islamic extremism and, even with a shortage of chaplains, we are hearing of such fruitful results of their ministry to both the uniformed personnel and their families at home."
Barnett, who spent 28 years in uniform, is armed with a strong commitment for finding and doing GodŐs will for his life and persuading others to do the same. That commitment began when, as a high school senior, he received a call to the gospel ministry. GodŐs purpose, he says, made it clear he was to be a chaplain and that both he and his wife were to be used in every assignment to fulfill His purpose in the lives of countless military personnel and their family members.
