Tyler Perry, the comedic genius behind the “Madea” franchise, recently released a new book Higher Is Waiting. Tyler Perry has built a strong following because of his hilarious characters and thought provoking stories, but he is also known for his kindness and generosity out of the limelight of Hollywood. In his new book, Perry paints beautiful, endearing portraits of those in his life who influenced the kind of person he is today. He also shares how his faith in God changed him for the better.
About Higher is Waiting
Higher Is Waiting is a spiritual guidebook, a collection of teachings culled from the experiences of a lifetime, meant to inspire readers . In this intimate book, Tyler Perry writes of how his faith has sustained him in hard times, centered him in good times, and enriched his life.
Beginning with his earliest memories of growing up a shy boy in New Orleans, Perry recalls the moments of grace and beauty in a childhood marked by brutality, deprivation, and fear. With tenderness he sketches portraits of the people who sustained him and taught him indelible lessons about integrity, trust in God, and the power of forgiveness. Perry writes of how he nurtured his dreams and discovered solace in nature, and of his resolute determination to reach ever higher.
Perry vividly and movingly describes his growing awareness of God’s presence in his life, how he learned to tune in to His voice, to persevere through hard times, and to choose faith over fear.
Why You’ll Like Higher is Waiting
With chapter titles like “Talking to Jesus” and “Finding Faith without a Road Map,” you may be wary of diving into something that might seem overtly religious. Trust Tyler Perry to discuss his faith and beliefs in an honest way without banging readers over the head with a Bible. The nature of this book is so personal. The writings are his experiences he has chosen to share as opposed to pushy doctrine that is not to be questioned. I don’t know Tyler Perry personally, but I feel like I get a great sense of who he is from reading this book. I believe he would be easy to chat with about life and faith, and it’s nice to see an open, honest side of someone with such a big personality.
