Dr. Kelley Varner

kelley-varner1I began my writing ministry in 1970.  But since my wife Joann read A YEAR IN THE NOW  by Bishop Jim Swilley, I am no longer her favorite author.  I have lost count of the number of copies of this classic that she has purchased as gifts for her special friends.  When I told her that I had been asked to write something about the new revision of this dynamic devotional, she immediately replied, “I don’t know how he could make it any better than it already is.”

 

Some men and women instruct staff members to edit their preaching into a book and then unashamedly claim its authorship.  Many others have ghostwriters (I have written several volumes for nationally known ministries).  But my friend and colleague Bishop Swilley is a commissioned scribe with a God-given grace to translate the profound mysteries of the Kingdom of God into a language that this generation, young and old, can readily grasp.

 

The volume before you breathes with the living Word.  It is an inspiration for the heart, an incentive to effective prayer, and a gold mine of truth for every preacher and teacher.  I heartily recommend the new and (if possible) revised version of A YEAR IN THE NOW as a must read for every Christian, especially us leaders.
