Author Bio

John White was born in Liverpool, England, on March 5, 1924, and grew up in Manchester. After serving as a reconnaissance photographer in the Fleet Air Arms during World War II, he completed medical training at Manchester University. He later participated in a variety of short-term missions efforts (including Bible smuggling!) and capitalized on many opportunities to encourage Christians behind the Iron Curtain during the beginning of the Cold War. On June 25, 1955, White married Laureate May O'Hara. From 1955 to 1964 he served as a medical missionary with New Tribes Mission. Later he was appointed associate general secretary of the International Fellowship of Evangelical Students of Latin America. White emigrated to Canada with his family in 1965 and later completed his residency in psychiatry in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He next filled the post of associate professor of psychiatry at the University of Manitoba and also served locally as pastor of Church of the Way. He wrote 25 books as well as numerous articles and study guides. A much sought-after speaker, he lectured around the world at churches, conferences and leadership events. During his later life, White moved to Vancouver, British Columbia, helping to plant a Vineyard church there (Surrey Vineyard) and becoming involved in the larger Vineyard Christian Fellowship. John White died in 2002, but his written ministry lives on, with over 1.5 million of his books in print.

    I have read hundreds of Christian books in my life and this one easily ranks in the top 5. It is in a category with Knowing God by J.I. Packer and Mere Christianity by C.S.Lewis. John White is a trustworthy mentor whose personal honesty and integrity are apparent through his writings (I have read virtually all of his 20 something books).

    This book is an excellent resource! It's a great tool to use along with your bible study time or great to give as a gift to a babe in Christ. It gives practical, biblical insight on so many issues of life and covers an array of topics that many Christians, both young and old rapple with their Christian walk. Although it was written in 1976 the book and its message are still pertinent TODAY!!Buy it you won't regret it!

    An excellent book for new and old Christians. This book accompanies John Whites bible study of the same name. This brother has a gift for explaining important, yet sometimes difficult, topics. My whole bible study class purchased them, and I bought extras as gifts for some new Christians I know. It will get them off on the right foot. Great discussions on prayer, conscience, witnessing, guilt, the blood, holiness, on and on. Full of spirit-feeding, practical wisdom!

    A great book to get a young Christian started in their faith. This book is easy to read, with very basic theology and spiritual disciplines, but, most importantly, it concentrates on explaining the most important aspect of Christianity - what knowing God personally and walking with Him is like, day-to-day. I highly recommend it!
