Product Details


“Soul Repair is an eloquent, deeply human reminder that war is not just what takes place on a distant battlefield. It is something that casts a shadow over the lives of those who took part for decades afterwards. The stories told by Lettini and Brock are deepened by what the authors reveal about the way the tragic thread of war’s aftermath has run through their own families.”Adam Hochschild, author of To End All Wars
“Those you send to war may come home with souls unclean and hearts drowning in bitter mistrust.  But the need for purification after battle has vanished into the blind spot of our culture. We neither offer it to returning veterans, nor remember that we—for whose sake, in whose name, our soldiers went to war—need purification with them. Potent challengers of conventional thinking, rich in heart, those who speak here are voices you will not forget.”Jonathan Shay, MD, PhD, author of Odysseus in America: Combat Trauma and the Trials of Homecoming
Very important and deeply moving.  I strongly recommend it.”James H. Cone, author of The Cross and the Lynching Tree 

“Soul Repair is stunning, just beautiful.  Riveting.  This is not just a breakthrough book, it is a breakthrough moment, the kind of work that makes history shift and emotions adjust.  It restores balance and reclaims life.”Amir Soltani, author of Zahra’s Paradise
“Eloquent and unflinching discourse on war’s problematic moral core.”—Publishers Weekly
