Selwyn Hughes was the founder and Life President of CWR and author of over 50 books as well as the highly popular daily devotional Every Day with Jesus.
In his autobiography, told with refreshing candour, Selwyn traces his life from his roots in Wales some years after the great Revival.
He tells of his conversion and call to the ministry, his experiences as a pastor, itinerant evangelist and pioneer in the counselling training field.
His story tells how CWR grew into a respected worldwide organisation and of the struggles to turn the derelict Waverley Abbey House into the Christian training centre of excellence it is today.
Selwyn bares his heart in telling of God's love, grace and strength in upholding him through the loss of his family members and his battle with cancer.
My Story: Extended Edition by Selwyn Hughes, John Peters was published by CWR in January 2007 and is our 11992nd best seller. The ISBN for My Story: Extended Edition is 9781853454172.
This autobiography of Selwyn Hughes charts his progress from a Welsh coal pit to an international ministry, whilst setting up a low cost travel industry and many other wonderful organisations along the way! His story is living proof of what can be achieved when your heart is for God. I particularly enjoyed reading about his early life and the beginnings of his ministry. He is piercingly honest about himself at times and provides useful insights in particular about marriage and the importance of saturating ones Christian life with prayer. I still wanted to know more about him by the end of the book. The last few chapters are very poignant and leave the reader knowing that Selwyn Hughes has spent his life being an incredibly energetic faithful servant of God, yet in his latter years has had to deal with the tragic loss of his wife and children. The epilogue is something I wanted to keep re-reading and treasure.
This extended edition is very welcome. The CD of Selwyn Hughes speaking at the 40th Anniversary of CWR, is inspiring, and it is so good to hear that well loved voice. The photographs exentuate the world wide ministry of this man, and the chapters written by John Peters chronicling the 'outstanding events of the last 18 months of Selwyn's life, his death, funeral, and Thanksgiving Service' are a fitting addition to the original book. The tributes at the end of the book reflect what so many people have felt about this very special man and his ministry.
