As a Norwegian immigrant, he became the spiritual leader of the region’s Scandinavian communities. Based on thorough research, this biographical novel recounts Amble’s journey through triumph and tragedy and tells the remarkable story of undaunted commitment during his 53 years of faithful ministry.  reference:

About Gary L. Hauck

Over the past 40 years, I had the privilege of holding positions that have given me a fairly broad understanding of leadership, organizational behavior, strategic planning, human relations, creativity, and critical thinking. With a primary focus on higher education, I have served as department chair, division chair, college chair, assistant academic dean, director of academic affairs, and dean of arts and sciences. Today, I am the Dean of Arts and Sciences at Montcalm Community College. I have also served as an officer in several professional organizations on the local, state, and national levels, and as a military chaplain in the U.S. Army Reserves.

With a heavy interest in globalization and international studies, I have taught college courses on location at the University of Shen Zhen (China), China Baptist Theological College (Hong Kong), the University of St. Petersburg (Russia), St. Petersburg Christian University (Russia), and the Arriba Institute (Ecuador). I have participated in archeological digs in the Middle East, and have led or participated in international field trips to 70 countries. I have published nineteen books, including Exploring Humanities Around the World, and Organizational Transformation in Higher Education.

In addition to teaching humanities and religions over the years (my passion), I have also taught courses in organizational behavior, leadership, and critical thinking for Central Michigan University, Siena Heights University, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, and Spring Arbor University. In 2008, I became a dean at Montcalm Community College. In addition to supervising the arts and sciences faculty and classroom instruction at the college, I am also involved in the design, development and implementation of new courses and MCC’s study abroad program and cultural events. I also continue to teach as an adjunct at MCC, and advise doctoral students at Ferris State University. Source:
