(1888 PressRelease) A Dachau liberator’s tale told by an expert storyteller will reignite readers’ search for personal meaning in today’s world.
DALLAS, Tex. — World War II soldier James Dorris may have earned the Purple Heart, Bronze Star and the Presidential Unit Citation for courageous action. But it was an inch-long cigarette butt he earned at Dachau that was his life’s greatest award. In A Soldier’s Search for Meaning, storyteller JC Howell and James Dorris share Dorris’ journey from the horrors of war to a Dachau reunion and the exemplary life of love and pursuit of God he led throughout, no matter the challenges he encountered.
Dorris and the 222nd Regiment took a relentless artillery onslaught and stopped the last major German offensive on January 24–25, 1945, before liberating the survivors at Dachau concentration camp. He never forgot the suffering he witnessed during the war, not only among his fellow soldiers, but also the parents who lost children and orphans who lost their parents. And he knew that he could not have survived his years of service without the goodness of God. In his final days, he made it his mission to share his story.
“In his journey from Camp Gruber into harm’s way, Dorris’ faith was steadfast and is so inspiring today during a time of coordinated assault on God by academia, the media, and atheists around the globe,” said JC Howell. “In the face of a false narrative that the belief in God has no rational foundation, Dorris’ story presents new objective evidence regarding attention, consciousness, and phenomenology—underpinning the conceptual and experiential signification of internal freedom and God in one’s search for meaning.”
The liberating soldier’s search for meaning undermines an atheist fountainhead, Richard Dawkins’s The God Delusion, and is intended to reignite readers’ search for personal meaning and provide the vision to overcome human despair going forward. The missing piece of Viktor Frankl’s Man’s Search For Meaning, A Soldier’s Search for Meaning explicates the grand purpose of life, arming readers with the understanding of what they can become. Howell challenges that it’s now up to us.
A Soldier’s Search for Meaning can be purchased online through SDP Publishing, Amazon, and Barnes and Noble. For more information about Howell, visit authorjchowell.com and follow him on Twitter ( @ ) authorjchowell dot
