A Table in the Presence Hardcover – January 1, 2004

On April 10th, 2003, the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, faced with the task of seizing the presidential palace in downtown Baghdad, ran headlong into what Lieutenant Colonel Oliver North called, "the worst day of fighting for U.S. Marines." Hiding in buildings and mosques, wearing civilian clothes, and spread out for over a mile, Saddam Hussein's militants rained down bullets and rocket propelled grenades on the 1st Battalion. But when the smoke of the eight-hour battle cleared, only one Marine had lost his life. Some said the 1st Battalion was incredibly lucky. But in the hearts and minds of the Marines who were there, there was no question. God had brought them miraculously through that battle.
As the 1st Battalion's chaplain, Lieutenant Carey Cash had the unique privilege of seeing firsthand, from the beginning of the war to the end, how God miraculously delivered, and even transformed, the lives of the men of the 1st Battalion. Their regiment, the most highly decorated regiment in the history of the Marines, was the first ground force to cross the border into Iraq, the first to see one of their own killed in battle, and they were the unit to fight what most believe to have been the decisive battle of the war-April 10th in downtown Baghdad. Through it all, Carey Cash says, the presence of God was undeniable. Cash even had the privilege of baptizing fifty-seven new Christians-Marines and Sailors-during the war in Iraq.
The men of the 1st Battalion came to discover what King David had discovered long ago--that God's presence could be richly experienced even in the presence of enemies. Here is the amazing story of their experience.

Just as in Biblical times, God is with the faithful on the battlefield as well as in His temples.
If you have ever asked, "Where is God during tough times?", this is the book for you. If you are dealing with doubts and fears, this is the book for you. If you think God isn't listening, Yep this is the book for you.
Your faith will be renewed as you read of a revival in the war torn deserts of Iraq. Joshua, David and other 'Warriors' for the faith experienced the power of God many, many years ago. That same God still works today. He still performs battlefield miracles. He still calls men unto Himself.
This important work by Chaplain Lt. Carey Cash was written from his heart; from his experiences in the line of fire. Here is a warrior, a Christian and a friend like few ever know. As he shepherds his men he also leads them to the 'shepherd' of all men.
This book is a tremendous testimony of 'God in the trenches.' He didn't abandon these Marines and he won't abandon you, no matter where your 'trench' may be.
