This new edition of Strength for Service to God and Country is offered to all the individuals who guard the institutions of democracy and help protect people of the world, be they military personnel, firefighters, police officers, paramedics, or other public servants. There are 365 daily readings submitted from a broad spectrum of leaders in the Christian church, and a suggested Bible reading for each day. Appendices in the back offer prayers and devotions for holidays, and a few readings for Jewish and Muslim devotions.
Strength for Service was originally published in 1942, and over 720,000 copies were distributed to U.S. service men and women. After the events of September 11, 2001 the General Commission on United Methodist Men partnered with Evan Hunsberger, who had a vision to republish the little devotional book as his Eagle Scout service project to honor his grandfather. Eugene Hunsberger, a Navy corpsman, read it to dying men on the battlefields of the Pacific during World War II. This updated version includes 40 additional entries, with over one million copies purchased by and distributed to deserving service members.
