The world of the truck driver is a complete mystery for most of us, but the reality is that they are people just like you and me. You can learn about the difficult and lonely life they lead by reading The Truck Stop, which contains short stories that inspire and lead to a greater understanding of just who is behind the wheel of those huge vehicles that we sometimes think are in our way. Short vignettes, based upon actual encounters, are presented to the reader to illustrate the common thread of hope that runs through them and brings us deeper into our faith.
In twelve years as the Truck Stop Chaplain, the writer, Deacon Richard Seveska has heard just about every kind of story from the drivers he's met. There are stories of family, love, drama, tragedy, legal battles, crime, intrigue, horrific accidents, and faith. The stories presented in The Truck Stop are personal life journeys that are intended to help us see ourselves through the lives of others.
