Greg Foley’s new book, Journal of a Christian Soldier in Iraq ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-62230-195-9; $7.99, e-book, 978-1-62230-196-6) is the author’s personal journal. His story is remarkable and published with very minor editing, as Foley wanted to keep his entries in tact. The mission of this book is not only to show God’s mercy and grace in this one man’s life, but that this relationship with God can be attainable by anyone who chooses Him.
“My prayer and hope for those reading this journal is that they would see a God who listened to and answered my prayers, even when they were petty and selfish…” states the author. “…Who loved me, even when I was unlovable; who showed me grace and mercy, even though I denied it to others; and who saved me, even when I deserved death.”
Greg Foley was a newly commissioned 2nd Lieutenant in the Field Artillery when he began this journal prior to leaving for Iraq in 2004. While attached to the 1st Calvary Division, he served with the Oregon Army National Guard’s 41st Infantry Brigade, 2-162 Infantry, Alpha Company. Greg is a 2003 graduate of Western Oregon University. In 2007, Greg earned his MBA from George Fox University. He is currently working in the private sector as a business manager. He and his wife Melissa recently celebrated 5 years of marriage. They have two young children, Michael and Miley.
