Description


Growing up in the harsh conditions of rural Canada, Arthur questions God. A train ride away is New York, a dreamland of stars and celebrities. He goes and his doubts follow. Impressing his friends, he snags an acting gig with a road company, taking him and abandoning him in San Francisco. After a few events, he finds solace from a compassionate priest. He discovers his calling. As WWII intensifies, he is summoned to serve his country. An extraordinary tale of bravery and heroism led him to be the "Most Decorated Chaplain" in that war. Still, it amplifies his conflict between God and Country. War was not part of Father Henderson's plan. Never has he been attracted to conflict, no matter how or what circumstances landed in his path. But, he would handle them. A Pentagon position follows, he helps form policy on post-war agendas like freedom of religion and human rights. Hearing an uncomfortable confession and revealing its content is prohibited by church and judicial law. This throws him into a universe of espionage, and right in the middle of the ancient battle between God and Country, when it comes to choosing sides, the choice may cost him his life. An aspirational saga of an unsung hero. Chaplain Colonel Arthur Benedict Henderson (OFM)
