Courage Grows Strong at the Wound
Award-winning peace journalist Robert C. Koehler provocatively trespasses beyond consensus thinking and settled boundaries of conventional reporting, into the risky realms of secular spirituality and the human heart. In the process, he breaks down walls separating "news" from caring. In Courage Grows Strong at the Wound, Koehler takes you on a journey that begins with his own grief - losing his wife to cancer in 1998 - through the events that shaped our young tumultuous century, culminating in the experience of an Iraq war veteran speaking at the Winter Soldier hearings in Washington, D.C., describing what it's like to look through the sights of a rifle at a six-year-old Iraqi boy. This spellbinding book is a plea for sanity and disarmament, a celebration of the wonder of life and a cry of faith in an empowering love that can save us. Koehler has received thousands of letters over the years from readers who were moved, sometimes to tears, by his piercing, prayerful essays.
