Item Description...
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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
An Excellent Recounting of the Iraq War's first days.  Jul 24, 2005
This is a well-written and fast-paced book that takes you inside the battle of Bagdad when the Marines first took the supposedly vaunted city.

Written from the perspective of a chaplain with the Marines, you'll be moved spiritually and emotionally as you realize the great sacrifice of the young men and woman who have signed up to risk their lives for our country. Furthermore, you'll get surprising details about the role of a chaplain. I always thought they stood on the sidelines and read prayers, but they are in the thick of the theatre with the troops, going on risky missions so they can provide spiritual comfort, balance, and perrspective to men and woman facing the risk of death. A great book to buy for anyone you know who is interested in the war or perhaps for a soldier.
Who Prepared "A Table In the Presence"?  May 8, 2005
Throughout the recording of history, there have been accounts by men and women in battle who relate events in which they believe God directed paths and provided supernatural protection. From the Israelites exodus from Egypt, to the American Revolutionary War, and now in our War on Terrorism, eye witness experiences of these instances have been well documented.

LT. Cash gives a first hand account of the ground war of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment in Operation Iraqi Freedom. He begins with the account of how God brought forth revival in the desert of Kuwait before the men entered the fighting. He then goes on to record event after event that can only be explained as God's involvement in the lives of warriors fighting for a just cause.

His eye witness accounts of bravery and supernatural protection are written in fast paced prose. Some will scoff at what he includes and at the "testimony" of those invovled in each incident. Others will understand that while we do not know why God allows safety for some and injury or death for others, God is sovereign. Our ways are not His ways, and our thought are not His thoughts.

Readers and reviewers may question why the god of Islam did not protect his followers, or why Jehovah God did not protect all of the men of the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment. They will assume that the god of the Muslim faith is the same as the God of the Christian faith. It may be that they will even declare that all of the events were coincidence or even contained embellishments. Before accepting any of these opinions, let the reader stop and ask for the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob...Jehovah speak to them about the source of the Power behind what LT. Cash has recorded. It could be they will come to understand just Who it was that prepared "a table in the presence".
Fantastic Book.  Mar 24, 2005
The true story about how God really, really wanted to have a conversation with one Marine. So much that he diverted an Iraqi bullet that otherwise would have missed.
A Primer for Guidance in War and "Peace"  Mar 16, 2005
Lt. Cash presents an absolutely spellbinding account of a Marine battalion as it progresses through Iraq and how God is present in our lives no matter the circumstances. Lt. Cash is extremely objective in sharing the personal, one-on-one relationship God wishes to have with us. This is not some sort of rah, rah story that suggests God is an American; instead the author provides insight into the fears, worries, and challenges that Marines face in combat and how a loving God inspires, comforts, and guides each man. The author also provides a balanced, first-person view of the interaction with the Iraqis that the media has ignored in deference to controversy and negativity.
Lt. Cash provides many scriptural references as to how the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob yearns for a loving relationship with us, and how sometimes we need to be broken in order for our own barriers to come down. God has chased His people through good and bad, a father whose love is unconditional and waiting for us. In this way, this book has life application far beyond the "war story" it includes.
This is also not a preachy book. Lt. Cash provides an excellent account of how a Marine infantry battalion functions and how things like sandstorms and enemy contact are dealt with on the personal level by the individual Marine. And through scripture and example, he shows us how that same God will help each of us through the sandstorms or enemy contacts we each face every day.
If you are looking for an "argument" that God is biased in favor of America, this is not your book. But if you are looking for a book that reflects how God makes his peaceful presence known to those who seek him, even in the middle of a firefight, then I highly recommend "A Table in the Presence." Semper Fi.
A plumb line to Jesus -- A U.S. vanity press production  Mar 7, 2005
Who published this, you ask? Ahhh-h-h -- the "W Publishing Group."

Now who is this "W"...?

I have no doubt that the author, Lt. Carey H. Cash, believes every single word he writes -- not only about the horrible battles, terror, death, but of delivery from death at the hands of his enemies by a Very Special Pro-American God.

He does not, however, address the obvious question -- where was his enemies' god while Cash's god was thumpin' the snot outa them?

Even if we assume that the 1st Battalion was fighting non-religious Iraqi regulars that day, many battles have since ensued involving devout Muslims (terrorists and non-terrorists alike) fighting against American forces. So where IS their god? Is Allah a lesser god? A weaker god? Or, shall we follow Cash to his logical conclusion and assume Allah could not be a "real" god at all because the "real" god is out there supporting the USA?

And where was the Italian god when an Italian security official died protecting journalist Giuliana Sgrena from the holy guns of the frightened young American soldiers who destroyed their car in March '05? And what about the dozens of beheaded? Where were their gods when their throats were cut? Off somewhere protecting Carey H. Cash? What does that say for omnipresence? Omnipotence?

No wonder so many outside our own borders -- like the Europeans who have endured hundreds of years of religious warfare, bigotry and torture all dressed up in spiritual smugness -- consider so many Americans to be arrogant fools who could be dismissed as silly except for our Bradley Fighting Vehicles, bombers, mustard gas and the absurd righteousness with which we wield them. Carey Cash, snap out of it.
