Dr. Howard Malmstadt is known for his work in analytical chemistry, his scientific discoveries, his intellectual prowess, and his academic and humanitarian achievements. He is also remembered for his humility and love for people. Howard grew up with a strong work ethic, a solid faith in God, devotion to family, and a belief in America as a land of opportunity. Howard's life modeled hope and perseverance.
"Into the Light" is the story of Howard's academic and spiritual legacy. Howard Malmstadt was a man of passion for teaching, for people, for missions. Always innovative Howard pursued excellence in all he did. Howard was a strong advocate of team dynamics.
John Feaver gives the reader more than a recitation of facts on the life of Dr. Howard Malmstadt. He has gone beyond this to provide a revelation into his character and personality, and his lifetime journey of discovery. Former students felt that he "demonstrated that extraordinary combination of humanity, academic brilliance, passion for learning, love for his feld and devotion to his students that typify a truly great teacher.
In 1977 Malmstadt, in response to a very specific divine call, joined forces with Loren Cunningham of YWAM to establish what is now known as the University of Nations. This response to God's call started with clearing underbrush from the first campus on Kona, Hawaii and led to overseeing extension of the ministry to establish additional campuses throughout the world.
"Into the Light" is an important contribution to missions literature and should be included in the curriculum of missions programs in seminaries and Bible colleges. Inspirational and motivational this book should be added to reading lists and be prominently placed in church libraries throughout the world.
