Ronald L. Kirkland spent forty-four years as a nuclear shipbuilder at General Dynamics Electric Boat; during that time, he became intimately familiar with nearly every element of a submarine’s production. In this inspirational memoir, he shares two tales: a message of hope for those whose life experiences have left them raw and empty, and a detailed look into his life as a shipbuilder. One tale demonstrates the depth of God’s grace, and the other tale paints a rich history of the work surrounding Electric Boat in Groton, Connecticut. Despite landing a great job, Kirkland had adopted a troubling lifestyle shaped by a disruptive and abusive childhood. Through his twenties, he continued to go down the wrong path, but he ultimately found real hope and redemption through Jesus Christ. Kirkland looks back at how nuclear submarines evolved, along with the men and women who designed, built, and maintained them. Discover the transformative power of Jesus Christ and learn how a gritty reality and rich characters defined an iconic New England company in Confessions of a Nuclear Dinosaur.
