It’s tough to get a good book published – even tougher, it seems, to have one that does well in sales. But one of our FaithWriters member, Robert Bernecker, has done so. His current book, Who’s Your Father, was self-published, and is often the #1 selling book on Amazon in several categories. In this two-part interview, come learn more about Robert, his book, his background, and a bit about what it took for him to get his book on the path to succes.
JOANNE SHER: I was looking at your profile page at FaithWriters and learned a bit about your story. Can you share it a bit with us? It sounds like you were a living witness in the secular world, as well as a servant within the church in many capacities.
ROBERT BERNECKER: As I look back on the incredible journey that God authored specifically for me (Psalm 139:16), I can now clearly see his loving, ever-present hand in bringing me to the exact point at which He has placed me today. I see how He used me along the way but was always building, always developing, and always drawing me towards Himself at all points all along the way.
Without exaggeration, it would take an entire book to recount how my Father has led, worked, delivered, blessed, disciplined, and shaped me along the way. Many things that were painful or made little sense at the time can now be seen as blessings because that particular portion of God’s purpose is now evident. Better still, I have the comfort of knowing that what lies ahead in my path will certainly be for my good and for my further growth (Romans 8:28), no matter how the fog of present difficulties may shroud a clear view of the future. From this perspective, the trite phase “God isn’t finished with me yet” takes on a profoundly deeper meaning.
