John Fischer, the award-winning, best-selling author has released his fifteenth book, Love Him in the Morning: Reflections on God's Faithfulness. The book has received positive reviews among critics.
John is an acclaimed musician and author, having recorded 12 albums and having written for numerous magazines such as Chuck Colson's BreakPoint Online, Walk Through the Bible's devotional magazine InDeed and Relevant magazine. He has over 20 years of experience writing for CCM Magazine and other articles for youth devotional publications.
Fischer goes to great lengths in this inspirational offering to show the simple relationship with God that Christians should have -- and that is the relationship of loving and to be loved. The book is filled with intimate, conversational and provocative narratives inspired by the his most famous song, "Love Him In The Morning."
Publishers Weekly says, "Thirty years after John Fischer wrote the 'All Day Song,' it is still sung at evangelical churches and youth campfires around the country. Here, he reveals the genesis of that song at the dawn of the Jesus Movement, and says that while the ditty's early phrases about loving God in the morning and evening came naturally, the later injunction to love God when you feel the pressure coming was more like an intuition of the future, because he wrote those words at the most carefree time in his life. Like the song itself, the book is superficially simple. Fischer uncovers hidden layers of depth and meaning in a down-to-earth and appealing way."
John currently is also going to participate as a Allegory/Fantasy nominee in the the 5th Annual Christy Awards on June 25 in Atlanta. The celebration promotes the creativity of novelists and novels of excellence in eight genres of Christian fiction. Awards are given and decided by a panel of judges for each genre including professors, librarians, writers, editors, retailers and other avid fiction readers.
