No Atheists in Foxholes assembles Patrick McLaughlin's experiences and prayers from e-mails, private notes, and personal conversations that take us real-time into realms of duty and spirit: from the quiet darkness of his infant son's New England bedroom on September 11, 2001, to the bombshelled medical tents and blistered Army Humvees of Anbar Province. Former Chaplain to President George W. Bush at Camp David, McLaughlin believes that prayer is not only possible, but critical. "We must all learn to pray for peace," he says, "and then become an answer to that prayer."
