Terror by Night by Terry Caffey and James H. Pence
What do you do when everything that matters to you is taken away?
If you believe in God, is your faith shaken when tragedy strikes? Do you question God? Do you turn your back and run as far from God as you can? Do you question if he even exist?
Terror by Night is the true story of Terry Caffey and his journey after his wife and two sons were brutally murdered, his home was burned to the ground, and his daughter was implicated in the crime and imprisoned. Before the brutal attack on his family, Caffey had felt he was called to the ministry. He did not know if he was going to be a preacher or an evangelist, but he was about to be ordained. But then in the middle of the night, someone attacks his family and everything is shattered. It is the story of his struggle to recover from the injuries he sustained in the attack and his mental, emotional, and spiritual struggles to resume his life. Caffey's story reads like a modern day version of Job. Everything he owned is gone. His family is gone. He feels isolated, abandoned, and alone.
It is a heart-wrenching story to read, but it is very inspiring to see how he responded in the face of total despair.
