Quick Overview

There are moments that teach you to trust in God.

As a young adopted boy, Dick Stenbakken sat alone in a car outside a tavern, wondering if his parents were ever going to come out. It would be one of many moments in his life that would call him to trust his heavenly Father. Years later, as an Army chaplain, that trust would be put to the test in a string of intense encounters, including having a gun pointed straight at him—by an American soldier.

There are moments that make you laugh out loud.

Whether he was pulling pranks on unsuspecting friends, showing off his trick foot that can turn around 180 degrees, or ending up at a honeymoon destination that wasn’t quite what he expected, Dick discovered that life is best when it’s full of laughter and surprises.

There are moments that prove that God has something better for you than you ever imagined.

As he rose in rank and assignment in the military, Dick had unexpected phone calls and encounters that changed his life. In one-on-one relationships and in his work at a Pentagon-level job, he learned that if you want to make a difference in this world, you can.

Unbelievable story

This book interested me greatly because I am an Army Veteran. Unknowst to me as I read the incredible story Of Chaplain Dick Stenbakken whom I greatly admire. Through this book I found my chaplain, Yes, my Seventh Day Adventist chaplain Ralph Workman from exactly 40 years ago at FT Sam Houston, Texas. Chaplain Workman held a Friday night service in the FT Sam Houston Chapel right by our barracks. For an 18 year old girl soldier away from home that was heaven. Any Christian who goes into the military is difficult because to me it was a very non Christian atmosphere. All you Christian soldiers and Chaplains like Dick Stenbakken and Ralph Workman :I Applaud in the name of Jesus Christ! And I thank God for all of you!

A Real Page-Turner

This book is a testimony of how God leads in our lives if we submit to Him. Once you start reading, you won't want to put it down. This man lived a life that was planned by God evey step of the way. This man's accomplishments were unbelievable and brought honor and glory to God's name. You will laugh and you will be humbled by God's actions. This book is a real inspiration.

A life story as unbelievable as his crazy foot!

I loved this book! The deeper I got into this military hero's story, the faster I wanted to read! ~ With a boatload of contrary childhood issues, it's amazing that he rose to such a high level of responsibility. And how often to you find an officer looking for people to help?

His abilities matched whatever he was asked to do, by the grace of his God. Like the proverbial saying - "give a superman a toothpick and a wad of duct tape and he'll build you a shopping mall". That's this man!
His sense of humor adds fun to this great read. Get it! --but don't plan to accomplish anything else for the day after you curl up with it!
