This week we interview Logan Mehl-Laituri, Iraq War veteran and Theology student, about his book Reborn on the Fourth of July. Logan grew up in a community that celebrated military service. His faith reinforced his love of country and his sense that that love was best expressed by fighting its battles. Then he went to war, and then he was born again.
In Reborn on the Fourth of July Logan's story reveals the real cost of war to military personnel, the real challenges to Christians that are raised by military service on and even off the battlefield, and the real questions that each of us must wrestle with as we hold in tension our love of country with God's love for the world.
