The war rages on without any consideration of the warrior. Broken and bloodied soldiers seek respite as wounds slowly heal. Unsure of when the next attack will come, all they have left is hope of divine deliverance.
I was engrossed in this story just a few months before I turned 20. Rereading the account of The Stripling Warriors was the first time I remember feeling hungry to read The Book of Mormon. In the past, I used the war chapters as a selling point as to why people should give the scriptures a chance. (It had action AND inspiration!) This experience though--this was totally different.
