SPIRITUAL CONNECTIONS

Click to enlargeThis classic adventure story - first published in 1902 - remains a timeless novel of love, honor, and courage. A Soldier's Shame... It is 1882 and British officer Harry Feversham has it all:
a loving fianc?e, the camaraderie of fellow soldiers,
a bright future in a nation at the height of its imperial power.

But before he is deployed to battle in Africa, he resigns - and receives white feathers, symbols of cowardice, from three friends...and then a fourth from his fianc?e.

Click to enlargeA Love Lost... Ethne Eustace has pushed Harry out of her life, but not out of her mind. Still, when another suitor comes calling she makes a decision that could destroy Harry...and alter her life forever.

A Heroic Redemption... His world in tatters, Harry goes undercover in Africa to win back the respect of his comrades. From the bustling markets of Cairo to the sizzling sands of Omdurman prison, he fights with everything he has to bring honor back to his name...and Ethne back to his heart.

?Tis nothing for a man to hold up his head in a calm; but to maintain his post when all others have quitted their ground and there to stand upright when other men are beaten down is divine.
-- LUCIUS ANNAEUS SENECA (C. 4 B.C.?A.D. 65)

Courage is fear that has said its prayers.
-- DOROTHY BERNARD

Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs, even though checkered by failure, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.
-- THEODORE ROOSEVELT (1858?1919)

ON LOVE

You cannot love a fellow creature till you love God.
-- C. S. LEWIS (1898?1963)

You learn to speak by speaking, to study by studying, to run by running, to work by working; and just so you learn to love God and man by loving. Begin as a mere apprentice, and the very power of love will lead you on to become a master of the art.
-- SAINT FRANCIS OF SALES (1567?1622)

ON REDEMPTION

The strangest truth of the gospel is that redemption comes through suffering.
-- MILO L. CHAPMAN

God redeemed the human race when we were spitting in his face, as it were.
-- OSWALD CHAMBERS (1874?1917)

BIBLICAL CONNECTIONS

ON COURAGE

Joshua 1:9
" I command you?be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."

1 Chron. 28:20
Then David continued, "Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you...

Psalm 31:24
So be strong and take courage, all you who put your hope in the Lord!

ON LOVE

Would not the carrying out of one single commandment of Christ, ?Love one another,? change the whole aspect of the world and sweep away prisons and workhouses, and envying and strife, and all the strongholds of the devil? Two thousand years have nearly passed, and people have not yet understood that one single command of Christ, ?Love one another!?
-- MAX MULLER (1823?1900)

While faith makes all things possible, it is love that makes all things easy.

ON REDEMPTION

The purpose of Christ?s redeeming work was to make it possible for bad men to become good?deeply, radically, and finally.
-- A. W. TOZER (1897?1963)

The cross of Jesus Christ and his baptism express the same thing. Our Lord was not a martyr; he was not merely a good man; he was God Incarnate. He came down to the lowest reach of creation in order to bring back the whole human race to God, and in order to do this he must take upon him, as representative man, the whole massed sin of the race.
-- OSWALD CHAMBERS (1874?1917)

If I had the wisdom of Solomon, the patience of John, the meekness of Moses, the strength of Samson, the obedience of Abraham, the compassion of Joseph, the tears of Jeremiah, the poetic skill of David, the prophetic voice of Elijah, the courage of Daniel, the greatness of John the Baptist, the endurance and love of Paul, I would still need redemption through Christ?s blood, the forgiveness of sin.
-- R. L. WHEELER
