Jon Arensen’s book is not only a good read; it is engaging and provocative, telling the heart-warming story of a man who has dedicated his entire life to God. The man’s name is Dick Lyth. And his story reveals that he was truly blessed with a servant’s heart. His Christian kindness and sensitivity to others in need fashioned him into an “Oasis in the wilderness” for anyone with whom he came in contact. He fulfilled the style of ministry taught by Christ. The words recorded in the 25th chapter of St. Matthew’s Gospel, aptly describe the work of Dick Lyth: “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Reserve plenty of time to not only read, but ponder the words of this book. You won’t regret it. Once you begin to unlock the wonder of this book, you won’t want to put it down.
