General Boykin writes about his time in the Army and his faith in God. It was a very interesting book. You may remember him from the fire storm in the media over his speaking to Christian audiences, where he asked them to battle Islamic terror by praying for the war and the troops. Of course that kind of fundamentalist Christian talk is the same a terrorism to the left wing media, who took him to task and demanded he be fired. He speaks about his faith and how it was tested.
Lieutenant General William "Jerry" Boykin served in a variety of posts during his 36-year career in the Army, most of them involving Delta Force and Special Forces. He is an original member of the Army's Delta Force. His last post was as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Intelligence in the Pentagon, overseeing the gathering and exploitation of intelligence during the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.
