About the Author

Dr. R. Gary Heikkila went to Hollywood in the 1960s as a contender for the role of Christ in the major motion picture The Greatest Story Ever Told. His intriguing story will take you from Hope Street in the Celluloid City to Mission Street in the Kingdom of God—and that is some journey! His amazing story gives an exclamation point to the truth of God’s Word: “But where sin abounded, grace abounded much more” (Romans 5:20). Heikkila’s “wilderness experience” led him into the far-off city, like the prodigal of old, and finally to over five decades as a respected minister in New England. He writes a weekly column for the Gardner News entitled, “Spiritual Insight.” He is a retired police, court, and hospice chaplain, and he is currently serving as a certified master chaplain (CMC) for Homeland Security. He is a sought-after speaker in various venues.
