[BOOK COVER]: Near to the Heart

My friend Richard Crocker is publishing a novel, Near to the Heart. We met at Dartmouth College where he served as college chaplain and, later on, dean of the Tucker Foundation. Apart from my fondness for Richard, I have always found him interesting. He is a man of wit, mystery, and depth. As a result, his writing project piqued my curiosity when it commenced many moons ago. The final product is a brilliantly compelling and oft-times humorous story about a young man’s journey to answer God’s call. Readers will find the novel’s themes timely. Richard’s protagonist, Ben Calhoun, navigates a bygone America upended by racial prejudice, war fatigue, and broken promises. Sound familiar?
