for god and country [in that order]
The call to arms has often thrust devoted Christians into a dilemma: they want to be responsible citizens who obey their government and love their country, and yet they worship a God who loves all people, including enemies. Throughout history, Christians have responded in various ways-some renouncing violence and military participation and others seeking to serve in the military in a godly way.

Both politically relevant and theologically provocative, this field manual seeks to recapture the hearts and minds of Christians trapped between conflicting loyalties to faith and citizenship.
