Are evangelical Christians persecuted in the military? Does the general prohibition against proselytizing in the military violate soldiers Constitutional rights? Are liberalism and/or universalism implicitly endorsed by the military and political leadership as the preferred religion of the United States government? In this timely and important book, John Laing draws upon his knowledge as a professor of theology and philosophy and his experience as an Army chaplain in order to address these questions and more, with a view to answering the larger theological question of whether evangelicals can successfully serve as military chaplains while remaining true to their conservative biblical beliefs and evangelistic commitments.

While the book is primarily written for those involved or interested in military chaplaincy, it has a broader appeal, as the issues discussed are relevant to all areas of chaplaincy: healthcare, institutional, public service, campus, and marketplace. Endorsements: In Jesus Name is a must read for anyone considering the unique call of ministry as a military chaplain.

It should also be required reading for those who have already answered the call because of the authors scholarly research of the issues that confront the modern minister-soldier. This book dispels some of the current myths put out by disgruntled chaplains and gives an accurate understanding of the challenges that confront evangelical chaplains today.
