This is the man I'd choose.
This is one of my favourite non-Scripture quotes of all time:
"Mr. Smith, my religious faith teaches me that God has already fixed the time of my death; therefore, I think not of it. I am as calm in battle as I would be in my own parlor. God will come for me in his own time." 'Stonewall' Jackson when asked how he could remain so calm on the battlefield.
You gotta love 'im. I do.
