In July of 1996, Robert Alexander – Marine Corps veteran, insurance executive, devoted
husband, committed Christian – was told that he had inoperable prostate cancer and that he had
fourteen months to live. By dint of his considerable intellect, gritty determination, unwavering
support from his loving wife Gerda and a growing faith, he lived four and a half more years and
launched a ministry that literally touched thousands of people.
In Semper Fi: The Psalms of Robert Alexander, the author has preserved the poignant and
inspirational writings of a remarkable man. They are presented within the context of parallel
spiritual and physical events in his life, including both times of trial and times of triumph. This
"devotional biography" will encourage and inspire all who read it.
