The Burned Page that Terry Found


On the Dr. Phil show, Terry told about finding a burned page from a novel and how what was written on it turned his life around. Some readers have wanted to know the name of the novel and where they can find it.

The novel was titled “Blind Sight,” and it was written by James H. Pence. Although it is out of print, you can still find copies on Amazon and other online sources. Here’s a link to the book on Amazon: Blind Sight .

“Blind Sight” is the fictional story of Thomas Kent, a pastor who lost his wife and two children in an automobile accident that was his fault. Angry at God for taking his family, Thomas has become a recluse, living by himself on a secluded property in north Texas.

Thomas is driven from his seclusion when he is asked to rescue two children who are on the run from a religious cult. As Thomas risks his life to save the children, he also comes to grips with God’s sovereignty in his own tragedy.

The page that Terry found is the page where Thomas comes to grips with God’s sovereignty in his loss. As you read the content of the page, and know that Terry had tragically lost his own family also, you can understand why he would see this as nothing less than a message from God.

James Pence was so moved by the story of the burned page that he offered to help Terry write a book about his experience. That book, of course, is Terror by Night

    Terry my family lives in ables springs (terrell). I somehow came across your daughters story. I am praying for your family. I dont know why other than duh, God for my need to contact you. I would love to write to your babygirl if it is something that is allowed. In reading your story today ( online) God once again gave me the knowledge that he is ALWAYS is in charge. And if you a uestin why something takes place, listen and watch because he will tell ya or show ya. (Like you did when you picked up that page from the book.) Please know that you have true God fearing folks around you praying for Erin and your new gang. God bless you and yours. Lorie Marez

    I have tonight just finished reading this book and I am going to buy six to give to friends. It is an amazing story of a man’s struggle in his walk with God when tested through difficult circumstances. It is very honest, sad, joyful, forgiveness, hurt and tears and above all is about God’s sovereignty over all things. I am a christian and struggle with family issues so after reading this book have been reminded God is faithful and Sovereign. Thank you for sharing.
