Chaplain Justin RobertsNo Greater Love is a documentary film that follows an Army Chaplain, Justin Roberts, as he goes outside the wire with every platoon in his battalion. This journey takes him through brutal battles and into valleys never seen before by western men. Throughout his year-long deployment in one of the most dangerous provinces in Afghanistan, he discovers that it is not hate that leads our soldiers to war, but the love that they have for the brothers beside them and for their families back home.

Check out trailer below.

Chaplain Roberts was deployed to Kunar Province, Afghanistan in 2010-2011. Kunar is home to some the most feared terrorists in the world. During that time, the 2/327th  Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne, also known as NO SLACK, pushed further
than anyone has ever pushed before, even into some valleys never seen before by  western forces. NO SLACK left those valleys victorious, and just a stone’s throw from where Osama Bin Laden was captured and killed less than two months after.

“We struck fear in the hearts of the enemy,” says Roberts.

A man who lives and works in the language of the heart, Chaplain Justin David  Roberts did what few Chaplains have ever dared to do. He left the safety of the base  and went on missions outside of the wire. He ventured on brutal missions as an unarmed soldier just to be with his men. The story he brought back is a love story:
love of God, of country, of brotherhood, and of service.

This film will bring a better understanding of a soldier’s sacrifice, and the brotherhood that comes only from the  commitment to die for one another. The film is named after verse 15:13 in the book
of John; ‘Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.’

These stories of Chaplain Roberts and the other brave soldiers of NO SLACK will  start the conversation and bridge the gap between civilians and soldiers. It’s not just a film, it’s a movement–a call to action. A call to care for our nation’s soldiers and veterans, to share the difficulty of war, and to truly welcome them home.

    I appreciate CH Roberts, his ministry and its impact. However, I disagree with the above statement from Mr Jones.

    What Mr Jones speaks of IS THE ROLE of the Army Chaplain, and there have been countless men and women who have faithfully and courageously fulfilled that role. To make it seem that CH Roberts is the exception in fulfilling that role does the Chaplaincy, as well as those individuals, a disservice.
