“Dr. Rumburg presents Chaplain Lacy as he truly was – detailing faults and strengths. His book takes us into another era, when reverence for God and His Word prevailed. The soul is refreshed, as example follows example of the Lord’s faithfulness to His promises and His ultimate triumph through those who follow Him. The Lord of the harvest prepared Chaplain Lacy for his life’s work, sustained him in his labors, and used him to the eternal blessing of thousands. After the war, Christ’s servant continued to face challenges, but the Captain of his salvation preserved him in every trial and granted a victorious entrance into His presence. Dr. Rumburg’s biography provides a thorough record of the Lord’s care for one who lived to ‘glorify God and to enjoy Him forever’. – Mark W. Evans
