Overview

How does a person respond, indeed, how does he cope with his integrity, his professional reputation, his company’s very existence unexpectedly come under attack from rogue government bureaucracy seemingly acting with no purpose other than to punish him from resisting their unlawful decisions and perhaps from their desire to favor a particular competitor? Does he run and hide, give up, just go away, or does he “run to win” The message delivered so eloquently by Dr. Christensen in this book is set forth against just such a backdrop of governmental abuse, corruption and cover up.

But this book is not about the details of such government regulators gone amuck. Rather it is the author’s story of how his total life’s experience and deep religious faith combined to give him the strength, conviction, and moral courage that sustain and guide him during his ongoing personal crisis, whether personal, professional, or financial. This book delivers a message that is both inspirational and tutorial.

Dr. Christensen’s life journey, spanning some eighty years and counting, is fascinating reading in itself. The reader gets to share the life of “Cowboy Bob,” “Healer Bob,” “Scientist Bob,” Teacher Bob,” “Entrepreneur Bob,” “Father Bob,” and “Author Bob.” Each of these Bobs are part of this unique man, healer of physical suffering, but also teacher, by example, of spiritual and moral lessons. Indeed, Dr. Christensen is what Dr. Albert Schweitzer must have had in mind when he said, “Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It is the only thing.” To Dr. Bob Christensen who has given me the honor of writing this foreword to his book, I say: “What an example you are: well done my good friend.”

Meet the Author

Bob is an oral and maxillofacial surgeon who has developed implants that address temporomandibular joint ( TMJ ) problems. After marrying on St. Patrick's Day in 1972, Bob and Lynne shared the work of managing Bob's surgery practice, and later ran a cattle ranch in Grants Pass, Oregon, where Lynne learned to milk cows, bale hay, raise beef, and shear lambs. There were also "missionary surgery" trips to Mexico, Hondurus, and Spain to perform complicated TMJ surgeries.

The Christensen's founded Covenant Marriage Ministry in 1983 to help couples whose marriages are in crisis. Through this ministry, they have co-anchored a daily television program called "Building The Kingdom In Families," authored several books, and produced videos that emphasize the value of entering into a covenant marriage. Both have also spoken to church groups in the U.S. and abroad, encouraging couples to work through the inevitable difficulties that come with marriage and to cherish their relationship. http:/www.covenantmarriages.com
