The Surrender Paradox peels back the cover over Chaplain (Captain) John VanderKaay's experiences in war and Hurricane Katrina, his own struggle with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the stigma against getting mental health help.  Labeled as "crazy" he was told by his superiors, "Good chaplains give help.  They don't need help."  After a miraculous encounter with God, he began to fight for those struggling with unseen wounds of war, helping change Department of Defense policies concerning those needing mental help.  Going from being seconds away from surrendering to despair and ending his life, to the point of total surrender to God's grace, John learned that when you are overwhelmed by circumstances, surrender is the only way out.   Therein lies the Surrender Paradox.
