No Greater Love: True Stories of Ultimate Sacrifice

Story by Beth Michaels
Published 4/17/2013

Somehow Karl Haffner, senior pastor of Ohio Conference’s Kettering church—an active, sizeable congregation in a suburb of Dayton—finds time to put pen to paper. For his latest and sixth book, this pastor’s son says he dug through the file of stories his own father set aside for communion services.
“I started there and then added my own stories as it proved a daunting challenge to find copyright holders on many of those old stories,” Haffner explains. The book ended up a compilation of “timeless stories of human sacrifice and divine love,” like “Uncle Harold’s Love Story” and “Terror at the Taj.”
What does Haffner hope readers will take away from the book? “A deeper sense of awe and appreciation for the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus made for us on the cross,” he says. Order at adventistbookcenter.com.
