The Line in the Sand

Considering God, himself, his objective, and his witness are suggestions to help Christian fighter pilots decide if they should participate in certain events—to help them figure out where their “line in the sand” will be.  Potential decisions in every situation may be different even among Christians because people are different.  There are Christians with the spiritual strength to be deeply in the world and yet not be phased by it; there are also Christians in the world who struggle just keeping themselves from becoming part of the world.  There are Christian fighter pilots that are called to be a light to the other non-Christian pilots, and there are those that are called to disciple the younger Christian ones.  There are a multitude of degrees of attendance and participation when it comes to the events and occasions of a fighter pilot life.  Fighter pilot events themselves range from the harmless and fun to the vulgar and evil.  There is no single cookie-cutter answer that will fit every person, personality, place, and party.  Read more

Book Review: The Christian Attitude Toward War

Loraine Boettner
Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Company, New Jersey 1985.
Topic: Christianity and War

Though in some parts a treatise against communism, this book contains interesting research on the Christian and war from Biblical, historical, and philosophical perspectives.

Not Recommended. If you are specifically interested in the philosophical discussion of the morality of war, the book is interesting, though it doesn’t provide too much in the way of unique insight.

This book is available from Christian Book Distributors.

Book Review: A More Elite Soldier

Chuck Holton
Multnomah Publishers, Sisters, Oregon, 2003.
Topic: Christian living

Mr. Holton’s book is not specifically for a Christian military audience, but it is very well written; it is essentially autobiographical relating to the author’s time as an Army ranger, with analogies to Christianity, though the application is not specific to the military life.

Recommended for those who enjoy application of the military to Christianity. Not specific to the Christian fighter pilot.

This book is available from Christian Book Distributors and Amazon.
