The Chaplain's Diary

Xulon Press, 2007 - Fiction - 460 pages
Few people really know what Chaplains do in combat. The Chaplain Diaries: WWII - Jack Standridge gives the reader an inside look of life for a Chaplain in combat. This historical fiction wrestles with the complex issues of men of peace in wartime situations! Their lives, their loves and their patriotism are on the line when it comes to ministering to the American fighting soldier, civilians and even enemy troops. Chaplains often find themselves in situations that test their resolve to do ministry in hostile situations. Such is the case with Chaplain (Captain) Jack Standridge. Convinced he is a pacifist, he struggles to reconcile his convictions with his calling in a place where he sees the brutality of war - especially when he himself is faced with life or death situations! Taken from his own real-life experiences as a Chaplain Assistant in the United States Army, Rich Griffith writes a fictional story about real life struggles in military ministry. Rich has been involved in Youth Ministry for over 22 years. He has ministered to families in the military, in housing projects, in Para church ministries and local churches. He is an ordained Pastor who loves to see leaders succeed in ministry and was a contributing author to The Teen Devotional Bible. His hope is that people will have a new found respect for Chaplains called to serve in difficult situations. Look for his other related works in the future. Rich lives and ministers in Gwinnett County, Georgia. All proceeds from this book will go to help local Youth Ministries.
