As Christians we know the Bible is important. Prayer is vital. Finding the time to take a breath in the presence of God is as necessary as drinking water. But, often, life just happens, and busyness takes over and appointments demand our time.
Sometimes it can be hard to just survive!
Based on Pastor Terry’s popular blog, 4-minute devotions, this book is a valuable resource for any follower of Christ. 80 short, encouraging, but challenging devotions are each designed to draw the reader into the Scriptures and into communion with God. Read one a day, or several at once and allow God to reclaim some of that busyness.
Terry Nightingale is a pastor serving in the southern suburbs of Perth, Western Australia, having previously worked in Christian education both in the UK and Perth. He graduated from Vose Seminary with a Masters in Divinity in 2016. He loves sharing the Gospel and teaching the Word of God.
Terry and Sue arrived in Australia in 2003 from the UK for a 1-year adventure. They never returned! The beaches, the sun and God’s call upon their lives persuaded them to settle in the land ‘down-under’. Today they have two grown-up children both married, with four grandchildren and counting.
Terry writes a popular weekly blog at terrynightingale.com called ‘4-minute Devotions’, short Bible -centred messages for the busy Christian on the go. He also writes Christian worship music and plays the guitar.
Looking Back to Move Forward is his first non-fiction book for Christian leaders – in fact for anyone who occasionally faces discouragement or setbacks.
