Chuck DeHaan pens inspiring story hoping to answer questions for many bashful cowboys

The Makin' of A Cowboy Evangelist

I hope readers understand how God can and will establish our thoughts if we will let Him.

Within the pages of Chuck DeHaan’s new book, The Makin' of A Cowboy Evangelist, ($15.99, paperback, 9781498467735; $7.99, e-book, 9781498467742) readers will meet Eric, the main character, a young cowboy who is starting to find answers to put direction in his life. As he’s halter breakin’ some colts, he begins to grasp God’s gentle touch on “Who so ever will”, and the difference in “who so ever won’t”. After his born again experience he also finds a great peace, the kind that’s beyond understanding – God’s peace. This is a story telling of God’s simple plan of salvation, based on God’s Word through the Bible. Many cowboys that the author has known in his life, young and old, have had deep questions but too much wounding pride to ask anyone. Even though this is a fictional story, it brings truthful answers unfolding God’s will for everyone – even cowboys.

“I hope readers understand how God can and will establish our thoughts if we will let Him,” states the author. “We have a choice from Him.”

In Chuck DeHaan’s life, his horse training and western art were intermingled for many years. When the demand for his artwork began to take up more of his time, the horses had to be cooled out and put up. For approximately 20 years, Chuck handled the advertising for Potts Longhorn Leather Company. He trained and showed their horses, as well as tested new products on his Cowtrack Ranch. Guildhall of Fort Worth, Texas published his limited edition prints. Through the years he worked with many major publishers such as The Franklin Mint, The Hamilton Collectables, The Bradford Exchange, Leaning Tree, Western Brands, as well as various book and magazine publishers.

This all started as a small boy, when Chuck found out that pencils left tracks. And from that moment on, he has unfolded his experiences and knowledge of horses onto canvas’ for others to enjoy. His talent which God has allowed him to work with has gained him many awards such as Texas State Artist of the year as well as the Golden Spur Award for Best Cover art by Western Writers of America. Many buckles, plaques and medals hang on the studio walls along with other awards. Collecting stories and experience for more than 82 years, Chuck has decided it’s time to start sharing his memories.
