“Whether you know nothing about Father Emil Kapaun or have read other books or articles about him, you will be grateful that you took the time to read this one. I am glad that I did."
Most Rev. Michael O. Jackels, Bishop of Wichita

"This is the story about a 'Man's Man!' He was a hero. He was holy. He was real. What a great book—I could not put it down and read it in one sitting! Fr. Kapaun's story will inspire you too to live your life for God and others and be the saint that God is calling you to be!"
Fr. Larry Richards,
Author, Be A Man!

"We need heroes to teach us how to live and decide in the concrete situations of our daily lives. Father Emil Kapaun is a figure whose heroism during the Korean War still serves as a lamp to guide our feet on the path of life. The Miracle of Father Kapaun will introduce you to this inspiring figure of a man for others. His care of the soldiers imprisoned with him inspired hope in them. I invite you to discover a priest, Army Chaplain, and hero on the pages of this book."
Archbishop Timothy P. Broglio, Archbishop for the Military Services, USA

"The Father Kapuan story has long been in need of more widespread knowledge. It is a priestly life of service and dignity. The record of military chaplains is a special category in the service of God and the men who fight, even a service to their enemies, as is the witness of Father Kapaun's death in a prison camp reminds us."
James V. Schall, S.J., Georgetown University

"Father Emil Kapaun was a modern American priest-hero whose unique and inspiring story should be known to every Catholic."
James Hitchcock,
Author, History of the Catholic Church
