Faith and hope in a war-torn land : the US Army chaplaincy in the Balkans, 1995-2005 by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 382 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Faith and Hope in a War-Torn Land: The US Army Chaplaincy in the Balkans, 19952005, Chaplain (Lieutenant Colonel) Ken Lawson has provided the Army with an unusual and much needed perspective on its history. The Combat Studies Institute is proud to add this study from the US Army Chaplain Corps to our Special Studies series of publications. The Chaplain Corps, with justifiable pride, has demonstrated in this study the key role played by the Reserve components (Army National Guard and Army Reserve) in providing religious support to the Army. While this has become routine today, it was certainly not the case in 1995. This is yet another step forward in the integration of the Active and Reserve components in the Army. This study analyzes the planning, command and control, and operations of the Chaplain Corps, but its target audience should be much larger. Commanders and staff officers alike will gain a better appreciation for what it takes to implement an effective ministry program for their units by reading this study. They will also gain insights about the operational role that chaplains can play in the accomplishment of the Armys objectives in a theater of operations
Reliable and religious : U.S. Army chaplains and the War of 1812 by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 233 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Back Cover: Army chaplains in the War of 1812 were a diverse group of dedicated clergymen. They marched with the troops, fought Indians and the British, and ministered to their troops. Some chaplains showed Christian compassion to British prisoners of war. Many of the chaplains served far from home for extended periods of time. Other chaplains served in their hometowns for only a few days or a couple of weeks. Religiously, the chaplains represented every Protestant denomination in America in the early nineteenth century. They were a committed group of clergy dedicated to freedom from what they perceived as British oppression. Some chaplains were regular army, but most were militia chaplains. Some of these military clergymen were injured, wounded, or died while on military orders. Their story of providing religious strength and support to the fledgling American Army is here told for the first time

For Christ and country : a biography of Brigadier General Gustavus Loomis by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gustavus Loomis served for almost six decades in the uniform of the United States Army. A veteran of five wars, Loomis was a professional soldier respected by his peers and feared by his enemies. But Gustavus Loomis, a country boy from Thetford, Vermont, was more than a career military officer. Loomis was a sincere and dedicated Christian. His faith in Jesus Christ was visible and undeniable. In his long life, Loomis always placed God first, followed by devotion to his family and then to service to his country. He was a man of the military who saw frequent combat and who spoke about Jesus to all who would listen. His home in garrison and his tent in the field were places of psalm singing and scripture reading. His bravery in the face of the enemy gave him high commendations, but his real passion was for the Lord and for his family. While some ridiculed him for his support of revivals, none ever questioned his professionalism as a soldier and an officer. - Publisher

Religion and the Utah War 1857-1858 by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Utah War was the first civil war within the United States, as U.S. citizens fought against each other for both religious and political reasons. The Latter Day Saints, under President Brigham Young, sought to establish a Zion of God on earth in the Utah Territory. Religiously they adored their Prophet and President and resisted the secular and unbelieving influences of the United States. At the same time, the federal government in Washington sought to persuade the Mormons to allegiance to the U.S. and to the cessation of polygamy. Generally speaking, both sides despised the religion of the other; both sides were adamant political enemies; and both sides were willing to fight and die for their beliefs. - Back cover

With courage and confidence : the US Army chaplaincy and the Puerto Rican campaign of 1898 by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Spanish American War of 1898 was the first world-wide military conflict for the fledgling United States. Although the U.S. won a decisive victory, the war exposed many flaws in the organization of the U.S. military. Army chaplains from both the U.S. volunteer units and the regular Army did exceptional ministry in Puerto Rico in an uncomfortable climate against an uncertain and often elusive enemy. In this original research, the author records a history never before examined. Here we learn much about religion and faith and how clergy do ministry in a hostile combat zone. The Spanish American War matured both the U.S. military and the military chaplaincy. Such maturity was definitely put to the test in the diseased and tropical inferno of war-torn Puerto Rico in the summer of 1898. - Back cover

A theology of ministry : the fundamental church, its chaplains, and its service members : a handbook for military ministry by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This booklet is designed to serve as a handbook for fundamental Christian churches in reference to military ministry. Many fundamental pastors are unsure of their relationship to their individual members who leave home for military duty. The sustaining relationship between members of a local fundamental church and a member now in the armed forces must be nurtured and developed in order to be maintained and to endure. - Introduction

Overcoming the cult : winning the hearts and minds of North Korea by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The reclusive nation of North Korea is an enigma to United States military and political officials. At times their leadership regime appears befuddled, comical, and even ridiculous. At other times the nation appears belligerent, hostile, and threatening to the world because of its apparent possession of nuclear weapons and cult-like control of its people. The Hermit Kingdom of North Korea remains confusing to Americans. With its adoration of the Kim family as divine rulers, as heaven-sent leaders, American military and political decision makers will face a situation in which they are unfamiliar and uncomfortable. Dealing with passionate religious fervor is not a strong point in American diplomatic and military experiences. Simply stated, North Korea is ruled by a despotic cult leader who considers himself a god. - p. 2
The first ten years : Associated Gospel Churches chaplains and the global war on terror, 2001-2011 by Kenneth E Lawson( Book )

2 editions published between 1993 and 2011 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Military chaplains from the Associated Gospel Churches (AGC) have served in the global war on terror since its opening moments. These men have deployed far from home and in dangerous situations with their troops, to provide spiritual advice and religious counseling to those in dangerous situations. Other AGC chaplains have served in rear operations, supporting service members and their families in this prolonged conflict. Unquestionably, these chaplains have saved lives, healed marriages, offered reconciliation with God, and pointed many hundreds of men and women to faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. This is their story. - Back cover

National Guard chaplains effectively provided religious support to troops deployed along the Mexican border. Their ministries were diverse and creative but successful.
