Award-winning, best-selling author John Fischer releases today his fifteenth book, Love Him in the Morning: Reflections on God’s Faithfulness, amidst critical acclaim.
In this inspirational offering from Revell, Fischer shows how a relationship with God can be as simple as: Love and be loved. With intimate, conversational and provocative narrative, the book was inspired by Fischer’s most famous song, “Love Him In The Morning,” also known as the “All Day Song.” As he did writing the song thirty years ago, Fischer has again crafted a powerful and profound message designed to motivate generations to seek God.
“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.” – Publishers Weekly
In addition to the current book, Fischer was recently honored with a Christy Award nomination for best Allegory/Fantasy for Dark Horse. The 5th Annual Christy Awards, celebrating the creativity of novelists and novels of excellence in eight genres of Christian fiction, will be presented on June 25 in Atlanta, Georgia. Named for Catherine Marshall, a pioneer in Christian fiction and author of Christy, the awards are determined by a panel of judges for each genre including professors, librarians, writers, editors, retailers and other avid fiction readers who evaluate each novel against a ten-point criteria for excellence in fiction writing.
