Dissipating Fog

As Through All The Plain crawls ever closer to publication, I keep receiving the most humbling endorsements. The most recent is from Dr. Gregory Allen Robbins, the Chair of the Department of Religious Studies and Associate Professor of the History of Christianity and its Scriptures at the University of Denver. These were his words:

“We send young men and women to war without thinking. Out of sight, they tend to be out of mind, our yellow-ribbon bumper stickers notwithstanding. What happens when we send thinking soldiers to war? Some come back to us with tales to tell, eyes-wide-open tales that challenge our complicity with, our inurement to violence, the violence we would render and the violence we sustain—personally and corporately—in executing wars’s ends. Peters’s is one such tale. It goes a long way toward dissipating the ‘fog.’”
