About-

This book is about WAR—not the causes and results, not the planning and the campaigns, not the artillery and the bombs. It is about the heinous crimes committed by the combatants, the horrifying experiences of civilians, the devastation of cities and villages, the killing and the dying, the glory leading to revulsion and guilt, and the assimilation of suffering that either ends in death or in the triumph of the soul. It looks at the struggle of the church to remain faithful and the servants of the church who seek to bring sense and solace to the victims. It discusses antisemitism, racism, and war itself from biblical perspectives. It reveals the unjustifiable reasons for engaging in war and how this brings catastrophic results for all peoples—the mental instability of the survivors and the loss and grief of those on the home front. In war, how can men and women carry out the actions that they do? As Viktor Frankl writes: “After all, man is that being who has invented the gas chambers of Auschwitz; however, he is also that being who has entered those gas chambers upright, with the Lord’s Prayer or the Shema Yisrael on his lips.”

Endorsements & Reviews-

“I have read I Glanced Out the Window and Saw the Edge of the World several times, from its first draft, and have watched it grow in strength to completion. As a lay person I have been enthralled, enlightened, and challenged by the extensively researched information and illuminating insights on the morality of war presented in this beautifully written text. I have been constantly amazed by this remarkable book and hope others will also find it a most worthwhile contribution to the understanding of the complexity of humanity.”

—Pauline Brockett, was married to an Australian Intelligence Officer who did two tours of South Vietnam
