10 Years Ago
From the Herald-Leader in 2007 Stanford E. Linzey was scheduled to tell of his experiences during World War II when the USS Yorktown was sunk during the Battle of Midway.
The community was welcomed to hear Linzey, who was to speak at the Bella Vista Assembly of God Church on Forest Hills Blvd, in Bella Vista.
Linzey spent 28 active years in military service, first as an enlisted man, then as a Navy chaplain. Linzey survived the “greatest naval battle ever fought,” and would tell of God’s answer to prayer during times of war.
Linzey’s book, “God Was at Midway,” was being widely distributed.
He had written numerous articles for many publications nationwide.
He received his bachelor’s and Th.B. degrees from the Southern California Bible College and Seminary (El Cajon, Calif.) and the Master of Divinity from the American Baptist Seminary of the West (Berkeley, Calif.).
He studied at Harvard Divinity School as a resident graduate, and earned the Doctor of Ministry degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in Pasadena, Calif.
Linzey is listed in “Who’s Who in Religion,” “International Men of Achievement” and “5,000 Personalities of the World.”
