It's called "friendly fire," but there is nothing friendly about it. To shoot one of your own is not only tragic but self-defeating. We are not describing the battlefield. We are talking about believers hurting other believers. Everyone in the Church knows of the walking wounded who are no longer in Christian community. That person might even be you. What can be done to cure such a visceral wound? Trusted pastor, theologian, author, composer, and retired Army Chaplain (Colonel) Michael A. Milton marshals forward a lifetime of Christian shepherding to diagnosis and apply the healing salve of the ruling motif of the Gospel for the cure of souls. In this new 2022 edition, Michael A. Milton uses Christ-centered theology presented in the tenderness of pastoral prose to carry the spiritually wounded to the paradoxical place of ultimate healing: the cross of Christ. This is one to read, to secure for loved ones, friends, your pastor, and classes. For any of us at any time can feel the searing pain of being hit by friendly fire.
