The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge

Posted on September 21, 2016
The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge
Opening in November from director Mel Gibson, Hacksaw Ridge is a $55 million Hollywood film that tells the story of World War II conscientious objector Desmond Doss. Scorned by his fellow soldiers and commanding officers, the combat medic refused to carry a weapon into battle—and changed everything when he repeatedly risked his life to save others in harm’s way.

Who was this Medal of Honor hero? What was the faith that sustained him through oppression and gunfire? Millions will see Hacksaw Ridge and will want to know about the religious beliefs that drove Doss, a Sabbath-keeper who refused to kill.

And you can be there for them!

Pastor Doug Batchelor has helped create a new sharing book called The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge that introduces Doss’ extraordinary testimony and his harrowing experiences in the Pacific Theater. At the end of the book, Doss’ and his church’s unique religious beliefs are carefully examined—including the Bible’s teachings about God, salvation, the afterlife, heaven, hell, the law of God, the Sabbath, and the health message.

Perfect for sharing, The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge takes readers behind the scenes for a deeper look at the religious values of Doss, the church he attended, and the truths on which he stood. When bullets flew and mortar shells exploded, Doss stood boldly on the rocky face of Hacksaw Ridge, secure in his faith. This book challenges readers to ask, “Where do I stand?”

For those familiar with Desmond’s faith, we invite you to pick up several copies of The Hero of Hacksaw Ridge to share with family and friends who need to hear the rest of the story. Churches will also find it a powerful tool to share outside theaters after people see the film. You can also leave them in doctor’s offices, waiting rooms, hair salons, and wherever else God leads you!
