Stephen Mattice is a full-time police officer with the Columbus Police Department (Kansas).  He is the author of Seeing It His Way: 40 Nights with a Christian Police Officer.  According to the book description, “Thousands nationwide are glued to their television sets, enthralled by shows where law enforcement officers face high-stakes situations and often risk their own lives, all in the line of duty. But what is it really like as a police officer hits the streets, preparing for another night's work? Author Stephen Mattice shares just that, bringing readers along for the ride as he enters this unpredictable and dangerous world—where 'another day at the office' could be anything from a high speed car chase to the site of a fatal highway collision, an ugly domestic disturbance, or the scene of a horrific crime.

Seeing It His Way, readers will gain an understanding of what it's like to witness such events not only as a police officer, but as a Christian. Utilizing a devotional style, Mattice relates his experiences to Scripture, encouraging readers to view the people and events in their own lives as opportunities in a mission field, where important spiritual lessons can be learned.”

Chaplain Dennis Johnson of Columbus Police Department said of Seeing It His Way: 40 Nights with a Christian Police Officer, “Whether you are a seeker, a new believer, a seasoned saint, law enforcement, or non-law enforcement, let God use these pages to bless and strengthen you.”
