Welcome to the intersection of Christian faith and armed service.
A place where community comes together despite diverse experiences.
Where assumptions are examined.
Where absolutes fade away.
I’m Logan M. Isaac, and this is the future I work toward;
the one we can make possible.
Our past and present mistakes must guide our future progress.
We’ve stereotyped. We’ve generalized. We’ve ignored.
We’ve identified the military as a monolithic being. We’ve forced a false dichotomy between faith and service. We’ve closed veterans out of the Christian conversation.
The result? A world where veterans are discouraged from having conversations about faith, leaving their care devoid of a meaningful religious dimension. Where soldiers believe they’re monsters in the eyes of God. Where 14 of the average 20 veteran suicides per day are by people who self-identify as Christian.
It’s time we rewrite this story, with hope at its center.
Together, we can bridge the gap between Patriot and Pacifist.
I work with those who want to challenge binary assumptions and navigate the divide between the Christian faith and armed service to improve conversation, community, and care.
Work With Logan
Through speaking, consulting, writing, and educating, I partner with clergy, chaplains, leadership teams, college students, families, and more to foster greater understanding of how faith and military service can coexist.
Worship and theology are communal in nature, and I invite congregations of all sizes and means to consider how I may offer myself as “a living sacrifice” so that conversation, communities, and care may be enriched.
I am Logan M. Isaac.
I’m an Iraq veteran who has been writing the wake of war since my honorable but reluctant discharge from the Army in 2006. Today, it is my mission as a theological educator to create a constructive and practical martial hermeneutic through which to understand Christianity and armed service.
My direct experience in combat, in academia, and in supporting military communities and personnel has led me to my work as an author, advocate, and entrepreneur who believes that peace is so much more than the absence of war.
