Terror By Night By: Terry Caffey with James H. Pence True Faith
This book was amazing I enjoyed every page. I was at the edge of my seat I could not believe I only took two days to read this book. I have always been intrigued by true criminal stories I have always found it interesting how people over come devastation and trials. This book was not a disappointment. What I enjoyed most was how the hand of God was in the life of the main character. I loved the scriptures I loved how the main character read Job and how it all came together for Terry Caffey. I really do not want to spoil the book for you. I just can say read the book and discover how the hand of God is in every aspect of their lives and how God can help you overcome anything you may be going through. Like the author said God is good, all the time. I received this book for free from Christian Books.com and had no influence on me to write this review.
I was blessed to get this eBook free. It poses the challenge to trust God in every situation and give forgiveness where it isn't deserved through the experience of this one man. I had to forgive a certain person in the book as I read, following the example this humble father set. The book was so well written it made you want to read on. I would recommend this to anyone to confirm God is still with them even in the worst circumstances and it's possible to forgive if you allow God to give you his heart for them.
This book is written well. It has some great background and advice on how to deal with turmoil in your life. The authors relate traumatic death and what those left behind deal with. All the thoughts, feelings, and ways to overcome. The authors use the story of Job well to explain God's answers to the tough questions of why and for what reason?
In March 2008, a man lost his entire life in only a short matter of time. I love to read mysteries and thrillers, but reading this one about a true event, sent chills up my spine. Literally.Its almost impossible to fathom the tragedy that struck the Caffey family that night. And even worse, to discover that it happened because of and/or by a member of that same family. Its a story of tragedy, faith, forgiveness and unimaginable, unconditional love.A true example of the powers of faith, the capabilities of a human under such conditions to not only withstand such a tragedy, but to fight for truth and some semblance of normalcy in life afterwards.One of the most inspiring, heart-wrenching stories Ive ever read. Terry Caffey was awakened in the middle of the night with a gun pointed at him by his teenage daughters boyfriend. That night, Mr. Caffeys wife and two sons were shot to death for no other explanation than sheer, cold-blooded murder. Though Mr. Caffey was also shot, he survived after coming to and realizing not only had he lost his entire family, but the house was now afire. He barely escaped. And lived to tell about it.It wasnt discovered until later, that his teenage daughter had also survived. And then even more devastatingly revealed, accused of being the mastermind of the plot to kill his family.Im not sure put into that same situation I couldve ever found my way back to God. And his struggle to do so was not an easy one. Yet Terry Caffey did just that. And... hes now ministering full time to others who have suffered tragedies.Truly an inspirational read that might make a believer out of the most difficult non-believer that God allows things to happen, but will see us through even the most difficult of times for HE is always with us. Always.Chilling, gripping, emotional, inspirational and an amazing willpower to survive and still find peace of mind.Cindy Bauer
What a horrific story--and true. I remember reading about this crime soon after it happened, wondering what exactly went wrong. Pence and Caffey do a phenomenal job of painstakingly recounting the details of the case, unpacking the emotional story in a thriller-like manner. It's not often that I can't put down a book, but this one kept beckoning me to turn the page well into the night.
