M. R. DeHaan
The Life Behind the Voice
by James R. AdairRead Sample Chapter!
"As the pages of my grandfather's story will show, he was a down-to-earth and ordinary man who shared with his grandchildren a love for gardening, laughter, and fishing for bass on a quiet lake. More importantly, he gave us an example of a man deeply committed to the Bible, to the good news of grace, and to the anticipation of the any-moment return of Christ."
— From the Forward by Mart DeHaan
Physician, theologian, businessman, radio personality—Martin R. DeHaan wore many hats but lived by one motive: service to God and his fellow man.
M. R. DeHaan—The Life Behind the Voice is the inspiring story of how the son of a Dutch cobbler, responding to God's call, rose from obscurity to found a broadcast teaching ministry that has pointed millions across the world to the saving grace of Christ.
It's all here: childhood years and the roots of faith, medical practice, seminary days, marriage, family, and friends, and the hard work, prayer, triumphs, setbacks, and above all, the people, that combined to turn Radio Bible Class from one man's dream into a far-reaching communications ministry.
As you read how God used a humble, ordinary individual to bring the truths of the Bible to many, you will gain vision and inspiration for your own life, and a new awareness of what God can accomplish through you.
