Amanda J. Lucas, who practices real estate and was recently installed as church historian for her home church, has completed her new book "Bible & Battlefield: 7 Lessons from the Civil War for our Christian Faith Today: Book 1": an invigorating Bible study that focuses on examining the connection between the Bible and history to renew one's faith in God and his Holy Scripture.
"'Bible and Battlefield: 7 Lessons from the Civil War for Our Christian Faith Today' is a type of Bible study that weaves history and biblical lessons together in a way that has not been done before," writes Lucas. "'Bible and Battlefield' will guide readers and study groups through several topics ranging from how to handle difficult people, what radical hospitality truly means, and having courage in life and leadership, all while connecting them to people, places, and events in the Civil War.
"The Bible itself is filled with true stories about real people and their experiences. The same can be said about the Civil War; it was about real people, real experiences, and real issues. It is easily forgotten that those true events happened on the other side of the sepia-tone photographs in the Library of Congress catalog. How quickly it is forgotten that the casualty numbers listed in countless textbooks represent real people! It is even simpler to forget that the Bible is not just a collection of unsubstantiated stories but is the real Word of God.
"History is not meant to be forgotten; it is not meant to be glossed over. Neither are the stories in the Bible, especially when those stories and lessons are difficult ones in this age of doing only what is comfortable. The Bible and history are ageless and applicable to every generation, yesterday and today. 'Bible and Battlefield' seeks to bring both history and the Bible together in a way that deepens faith and applies that history in a manner that today's society often believes it is not—real and relevant."
