Product Description

At 3:00 a.m. on March 1, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find his daughter’s boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun. An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terry’s wife, his two sons, and wounding him 12 times, before setting the house ablaze. Terry fell into deep depression and planned to kill himself, but God intervened. Upon visiting his burned-out property, Terry noticed a scorched scrap of paper from one of his wife’s books leaning against a tree trunk. The page read: “[God,] I couldn’t understand why You would take my family and leave me behind to struggle along without them. And I guess I still don’t totally understand that part of it. But I do believe that You’re sovereign; You’re in control.” That page was like a direct message from God, and it turned Terry’s life around. Now, one year later, Terry is remarried, the adoptive father of two young sons, and working to rebuild his relationship with his 17-year-old daughter, who is currently serving two life sentences in a Texas state penitentiary for her involvement in the crimes.
Terror by Night tells the compelling story of how Terry Caffey found peace after his wife and sons were brutally murdered and his teenage daughter implicated in the crime. Sharing never-before-told details about the night of the crime and subsequent murder trial, it explains how Terry was able to forgive the men who murdered his family, and how he even interceded with the prosecutors on their behalf. A powerful example of how the power of forgiveness can bring healing after tragedy and great loss, it shows how God can bring good out of even the darkest tragedies.

An AMAZING story from an AMAZING man about our AMAZING God. I pray that this book will continue to touch lives the way that it touched mine. If you EVER doubt God's presence in your life, THIS true story is a great example of how He never leaves us! God bless you Terry! It is a priviledge to know you!

I have read this book so many times and I just can not put it down. This is such a amazing book about a man who lost so much but, was able to find his way back though Christ's love and everlasting grace. I held him speak shortly after his tragic loss to see the wounds still fresh and I heard him twice since. I am so amazed to see how far he has come. Terry is such a blessing and I am so glad to call him a friend. God's grace is sufficient...

Knowing the entire family personally, it was like a stab in my heart for everyone that died. Can not know nor understand everything that Terry went through but do know how he can forgive through God's power.
