With a deep reliance on and faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, Army Scripture Reader William Ransley takes us into the agony of the Great War and shows us men facing their mortality both with and without Christ. Posted to Boulogne in 1914 and later to the hospitals of Wimereux in Northern France, Ransley faithfully witnessed to those profoundly affected by the war. His honest, gracious testimony and compassion are a challenge to us all. This book takes Ransley s diary and focuses attention on the period when World War One staggered to its brutal and horrifying conclusion in 1918. The need was great: so many souls on both sides, facing a violent entrance into eternity. Yet through it all, Ransley s faith in Christ and unswerving loyalty to speak the truth is the light that shines in encircling darkness.
