“Truly I think he that prays best, fights best. I know nothing that will give like courage and confidence as the knowledge of God in Christ will; and I bless God to see any even in this army able and willing to impart the knowledge they have for the good of others. Accordingly I raised such men as had the fear of God before them, and made some conscience of what they did. And from that day forward they never were beaten, but whoever they were engaged against the enemy, they beat continually.”
Oliver Cromwell, on the Soldiers Pocket Book Bible, 1643.
