High Ground, Holy Ground.

Upon finishing the book,I felt like I was standing on holy ground, not just high ground. The book abounds in sensitive and moving stories of love and courage from people with integrity, patriotism, and faith that has gone through the fire--ordinary people reflecting upon the gracious Creator, the one and only God.

An Outstanding Book

There is just so much you could say about this book. For one Colonel Jeffrey O'Leary is an outstanding author. Even though he himself didn't write much of this book it took a great deal of research to come up with what he has written here. Before each chapter he has a list of quotes. Those quote are from all different kinds of people. It just goes to show that many different people have their faith in the one and only true God. The stories that are in here are all different. Some will make you want to cry other will make you laugh. Once I started I just couldn't stop reading. I hated it when I had to put it down and do something else. In my opinion it is such a good book that I am buying as many as I can and giving them out as Christmas gifts to the family and friends. Even to a non believer this would be a good book. It show that through the toughest times people held onto what they believed in and God pulled them through when there was no way that they could have made it without him there by their sides. I can't say much more without ruining the book for you. I would like to tell you about some of the stories but they are too good to tell them now. I will have to let you decide for yourself how good the book really is. I hope you enjoy it and that this review was helpfull to you.

Hope for a Hurting Nation

This book was so inspirational. The timing couldn't have been better after the disasters of Sept 11. The book really encouraged me as I read story after story of courageous men and women who had suffered but survived their ordeals. It will appeal to women as well as men. I highly recommend it for an uplift in your day

Taking the High Ground Military Moments With God

This is an outstanding book and a must for any military library, Christian collection, and anyone interested in leadership challenges. I was delayed in reading the book because I left it out and my wife started reading it and would not put it down! Hours and one box of kleenex later, I was able to start reading. Each story makes you hungry for the next. Some of these stories are known in many Christian circles like the trials and triumphs of Clebe McClary. Here, Colonel O'Leary seems to tie his story to others to show God's power in to toughest of times. Others stories are everyday people who have extraordinary testimonies. Get this book, get a box of kleenex for tears of compasion and joy, and enjoy!


This book was well-written and kept one's attention throughout. In addition to telling stories of heroism and suffering of our military, it shows how God is the one who is victorious in all the situations. Fantastic, Must-Read book for military or non-military readers.
