About the Author
Dr. Henry T. Blackaby is the founder and President Emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization ‘built to help people experience God’.
Dr. Blackaby was born in British Columbia. He has devoted his lifetime to ministry. He studied English and History at the University of British Columbia as an undergrad and earned his B.D. and Th. M. from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds four honorary doctorate degrees!
In 1970, Dr. Blackaby followed God’s call to pastor a tiny church in Saskatoon, Canada. That church, Faith Baptist Church grew, and led to the founding of thirty-eight new churches and became a pastoral training center. Dr. Blackaby went on to serve on staff at the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. He also served as special assistant to the presidents of the International Mission Board and LifeWay Christian Resources. Officially retired, he still provides consultative leadership in the Christian community.
He has published many spiritually influential messages in his lifetime, most notably and my favorite: Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (1990) which has sold 7 million copies and has been translated into 45 languages. The other favorite of mine which I have also blogged about is Experiencing God Day-by-Day Devotional. Both of these books won the Gold Medallion Award.
His works are very much sound in Biblical doctrine and very uplifting and yet convicting.
