Christian devotional literature, also known as devotionals, is religious writing that is neither doctrinal nor theological, but designed for individuals to read fortheir personal edification and spiritual formation.
John Hunt Publishing has been reprinting copies of several devotionals for 20+ years.
These are from the pen of Father John Woolley and The, I Am With You Foundation
John Woolley grew up in Chester and worked as a racing correspondent for the local paper before being called to train for the Anglican ministry. He served for over 10 years in several parishes in the Liverpool diocese and was much loved by his parishioners – 4 coach loads went to attend his induction in his second parish! He was then called to hospital chaplaincy and moved South to St Albans to minister in the local psychiatric hospital
For many years he kept on receiving “heart-whispers” from the Lord which he recorded on any scrap of paper that he could find and in 1980 he founded the I Am With You Foundation. The first book with these “heart-whispers” – I Am With You – was published in 1984 and the other books followed. In the early `90s he set up a nationwide ministry involving days of renewal, retreats and talks across the Christian denominations
John received the Lord`s promise that the “heart-whispers” would spread worldwide and he used the Foundation to put this into effect. He spent most of the time in his later years responding to the prayer requests and testimonies of thousands of readers of the various books. The rest of his life was dedicated to this activity – he helped the Lord change so many lives!
Father John Woolley died in 2008 and the foundation continues to maintain his work
First published in 1985 as a hardback, "I Am With You" is now published in paperback as a Cirle Books title.This title has been the best-selling devotional in the UK since then. These words of divine encouragement were given to John Woolley in his work as a hospital chaplain, and have since inspired and uplifted tens of thousands, even changed their lives.
This is the first in a series of devotional books of "heart whispers" which John Woolley received from the Lord during prayer.
"I Am With You" will bring peace and consolation to all who read it. Cardinal Cormac Murphy-OConnor, Archbishop of Westminster
