“In all my training experience, I have never seen such a well-written, easy-to-read book, fully devoted to biblical perspectives for chaplains. What better resource than the Bible, with practical real-life stories that amplify and highlight principles of conduct for chaplains and ‘care givers’ in many and varied circumstances.”

“In these pages Dick and Pat Geyer go to the roots of the claim that helping people in time of need is the chief task of the Christian church. They find these roots both in history and in theology. Dick and Pat do a beautiful job explaining that the comfort we share is directly related to our awareness of God’s comfort in our lives. Explore the ways He ministers to you so that you can share His comforts with others in need.”
Kim Gee, D.Min., Senior Pastor, Winfield Bible Church, Woodbine, Maryland. Disaster Service Responder for the American Red Cross, member Red Cross Speaker’s Bureau.
“CHAPLAINS OF THE BIBLE brings a delightful insight of chaplaincy to encourage those of us who are in the field already and an inside view of what we do to those not familiar. As a senior law enforcement chaplain and crisis intervention specialist, I appreciate how Dick and Pat have brought forward the scriptural concepts of chaplaincy and plugged them into the relevancy of our culture and times.
The greatest example of a chaplain was Jesus. He met the needs of the people “outside the walls of the church,” thus enabling Him to touch the lives of people right where they were. CHAPLAINS OF THE BIBLE gives us a smorgasbord of stories with an opportunity to move you to making a difference in the lives of those around you. Total ‘THUMBS UP!’”
