Editorial Reviews


"Triumph Over Terror by Bob Ossler can be summed up in one word: Powerful. We've all seen the images of 9/11. Even though they were hard to look at, we could not turn our eyes away. So I braced myself to read Bob's book, not wanting to remember those images and experience the pain of 9/11 all over again. I intended to take just a minute to see how Bob began his book but got hooked on the first page and just kept reading. This book is full of life lessons."-Tim Shoemaker, author of Super Husband, Super Dad and The Code of Silence Series "I heard Chaplain Bob Ossler speak at Ground Zero at mini-memorial services for those who died on 9-11. I watched him in the aftermath of the loss of the Granite Mountain Hotshots (19 firefighters killed at the Yarnell, AZ wildfires in 2013) where he offered comfort to the immediate family members who lost loved ones. I personally leaned heavily on him after the drowning of a 6-year-old boy in a flash flood in 2010 that I refer to as the most difficult call in my 35-year career. Chaplain Bob is a consummate professional who uses his experiences, faith, and compassion to assist others in their time of need. I am proud to call him my fellow firefighter, my Chaplain, and my friend."-Glenn W. Brown, Fire Chief, Mayer, AZ Fire Department "Knowing Bob and reading these 9/11 stories in Triumph Over Terror made me imagine being right there with him on the Pile. I'm so proud written his memories down in such a powerful yet gentle way. I read and wept through many of them. Prepare to immerse yourself in Bob's words of human kindness, inspiration, and compassion."-Tom Ashcraft, Father of a Granite Mountain, Hot Shot Firefighter killed in 2013 Arizona wildfires "Chaplain Bob Ossler deserves special honors. He's a man who has poured out his life in service to others, including the men and women emergency workers helping put America back together in the aftermath of 9/11 at Ground Zero. This book gives us a glimpse into what it was like to work at Ground Zero and shows where God is during trials and how He responds."-Megan Breedlove, author of Chaotic Joy: Finding Abundance in the Messiness of Motherhood "I had the blessing of getting to know Chaplain Bob Ossler for a short time as he ministered to workers on the Pile and to families of victims at 9/11's Ground Zero. Chaplain Bob, one of the unsung heroes of 9/11, performed more than 300 mini-services for families who lost loved ones in the 7-story pile of agony that resulted from terrorist attacks. Triumph Over Terror takes us back and shows the need for a kinder, gentler world."-Lesley Visser, Football Hall of Fame Sportscaster "Chaplain Bob Ossler has been in the rescue business for a long time as a firefighter, paramedic, and ordained minister. He is uniquely gifted in ministering to those who are hurting, so everyone expected him to respond to the call for chaplains after the 9/11 tragedy. But even with all his training and experience in crisis situations, the emotional toll on him was great. When you read this book, you 'll experience 9/11 in a deeply personal way, and you will see inside the heart of a man who deeply cares for others."-Sal Roggio, Pastor "People always want Bob to speak about his experiences at Ground Zero, but few know how hard that is on a person's mental health. I now understand [after the deaths of nineteen firefighters in the Granite Mountain wildfires in Arizona in 2013]. Thank you, Bob, you have been my inspiration to continue to care for our firefighter families, raise money for the families of 9/11, and honor the words spoken by so many others: 'We will never forget; we remember every day.'"-Tom Haney, President of the United Yavapai, Firefighters IAFF Local 3066, Vice President of the Professional Firefighters of Arizona (PFFA), Fire Captain/Paramedic Mayer Fire District, Mayer, Arizona

About the Author

Bob Ossler, Chicago firefighter and chaplain, served five tours of duty as a volunteer chaplain at Ground Zero. No stranger to devastating tragedy, Bob was on the scene to serve others after Hurricane Katrina. He also served the families of the 19 elite Granite Mountain Hot Shot Firefighter Squad who perished in the Yarnell Hill Fire in Arizona. Based on his experiences at Ground Zero, Chaplain Ossler addresses the question “Where was God?” and also reveals how traumatized victims, including himself, can find hope again and triumph over terror.

Janice Hall Heck A retired special education teacher and administrator and trained in biblical counseling, Janice now serves as an editor and a mentor for Christian writers.
