Welcome to Chaplains of the Bible

This book is for all who have the desire and opportunity to help others in many different settings, from major disasters to the places of quiet crisis where there is no yellow tape to be found. Chaplains of the Bible inspires and equips through unique presentations of the experiences of Biblical chaplains, followed by “thoughts for the chaplain” that present relevant principles for application by the “Good Samaritans” of the current era.

The book is not only for chaplains, but also for others who have the heart to help people in crisis. It is for church leaders who see the need for ministry outside the walls of the church, and for Bible study leaders, who will be able to use the Study Guide. Disaster relief organizations and other groups whose mission is to minister to the distressed will find this book to be a valuable resource.


We have been blessed as we wrote this book and again as we taught from its precepts. May it bless you as you help others who are in crisis!
—Chaplains Dick and Pat Geyer
