The Confederate Soldier's Pocket Manual of Devotions: Including Balm for the Weary and the Wounded Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In the 1980s, Army Chaplain Corps adopted the credo Nurture the living. / Care for the wounded. / Honor the dead. It summarizes more than 200 years of chaplain ministry with soldiers during war and peace. C. T. Quintard's Soldier's Pocket Manual of Devotions was one Civil War chaplain's expression of the hope and faith on which the credo is built and was a very popular and widely distributed devotional manual used by many Confederate soldiers.

In his booklet Balm for the Weary and Wounded (1864), Quintard reached back often to the writers of the Oxford Movement, which was his theological underpinning. In addition to familiar prayers, collects, and hymns from the Book of Common Prayer, he adds poems, sermons, and religious texts of this movement.

Including both long-unavailable texts, this book is representative of what Civil War soldiers actually read in order to help keep their faith during a time of war.
