It’s been a busy week in Gettysburg, Pa., with my publisher, Patriot Press, signing author Michael Aubrecht to print his latest title “The Southern Cross: A Civil War Devotional.”
I’m very excited to see this work published and believe that both the Christian community and the Civil War community will be too.
The book features 50 inspirational, true-stories from the War Between the States, including 40 vignettes, 10 encouraging essays, 5 period-sermons, and 50 photos. Each chapter covers a specific virtue of the Christian soldier: Courage, Duty, Faith, Honor, and Mercy, and each segment contains a period photo, topical verse of scripture, an associated quote, and an inspirational story of faith under fire.
The author will be doing speaking engagements and signings in the Spring, so check back to this blog, or go to Michael’s site at http://www.pinstripepress.net/.
I always like to close with a quote, and this one seems appropriate this week:
“There is no such thing as chance; and what seems to us merest accident springs from the deepest source of destiny.” Friedrich von Schiller
