Faith in the Fight synopsis
It tells faith in the struggle for religion, injury, suffering and death in the Great War. Jonathan Abel, recalling the ideas and experiences of US forces, nurses and aid workers through their speeches, memoirs and memoirs, recalls how religion - primarily Christianity - encouraged these young men and women to fight and die, and continued in the chaos of war.
They formed their responses to the post-war. The book reveals the sudden repetition that the Americans who fought the war considered a religious challenge that could lead to individual and national redemption.
These Americans, who believed in the "sword of the sword", used to fight by reaffirming their religious faith and proclaiming America, which chose God and set them up in their mission. While the war sometimes challenged these beliefs, it did not change them radically.
Reflecting on the traditional view that the war has been disappointing worldwide, faith in the struggle argues that the war in fact strengthened the religious beliefs of the Americans who fought, and that it helped launch a religious revival of many orthodoxy in the prewar period Post-war racial riots, labor wars, witch hunts communism and gender conflicts. For many Americans, Ebel argues that the post-war period was in fact a "rescheduling".
By showing the deep links between Christianity and American experience in World War I, we are encouraged by faith in the struggle to study the religious dimensions of America's past and present wars and to work towards a deeper understanding of religion and violence in American history.
