The Goodnight Book is intended for... well, pretty well anybody of whatever philosophical or cultural background. Millions would concur with the author's experience at some point in their lives. The action-packed day that makes 'winding down' difficult, the fear of what 'tomorrow' may bring; pressures on the marriage, in the workplace or family; decisions looming ahead, the heaviness of grief - or the sheer trauma of moving house!

It's said by psychologists that the last thing we think about at night tends to stay with us, and become a part of the subconscious, thus affecting our mental and emotional make-up. So here it is one page at a time - one page of truth per evening!

Customer Reviews

This is a most marvellous book, full of one page messages which seem to fit in with every situation in my life. Some will bring tears to my eyes, other pages will even make me smile. All to the glory of God and our Lord Jesus Christ. Richard has the knack of putting words together beautifully. Thank you Richard.
