“There are many helps, guides and studies for the twenty-first century Christian. The number of these must have at least tripled within the last decade. From time to time something unique surfaces, which gives us a whole new insight or new approach to living the Christian life. I believe the reverend doctor David T. Myers approaches that uniqueness with his The Spiritual Side of Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson. Biographies of missionaries have been standard far for Christian readers, but here is a study, from a spiritual perspective, of a stellar American warrior. There is much to be gleaned here.
This study is thoughtfully done, exploring a variety of aspects of the great general’s life. It is historically accurate and gives fresh insight into the genius of the “mighty Stonewall.” It will profit any believer, not just those interested in the Civil War or military history. It is to be hoped that other such studies on notable personalities of the faith will be stimulated hereby. I whole-heartedly recommend it.” ~ Randy W.
