More About Henry T. Blackaby
Henry T. Blackaby is the founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization built to help people experience God.
Born in British Columbia, Dr. Blackaby has devoted his lifetime to ministry. He has served as a music director, education director, and pastor in churches in California and Canada, as well as president of Canadian Baptist Theological College for seven years and president of the Canadian Southern Baptist Conference. He has provided leadership to thousands of pastors and laymen across North America and has spoken to missionaries and other groups in over ninety countries of the world.
Dr. Blackaby studied English and history at the University of British Columbia as an undergraduate and earned his B.D. and Th.M. from Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary. He holds four honorary doctorate degrees.
In 1970, Dr. Blackaby followed God’s call to pastor a tiny church in Saskatoon, Canada. Not only did Faith Baptist Church grow to many times its original membership, but it led to the founding of thirty-eight new churches and became a center for pastoral training.
Dr. Blackaby went on to serve on staff at the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. Through the Home Mission Board, he led revival and spiritual awakening in the life of the convention. He also served as special assistant to the presidents of the International Mission Board and LifeWay Christian Resources. Although he is now officially retired, Dr. Blackaby continues to provide consultative leadership in the life of the Christian community.
Blackaby has published an array of spiritually influential messages in his lifetime, most notably Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God (1990), which has sold 7 million copies and has been translated into over 45 languages. His books, Experiencing God Together and Experiencing God Day by Day Devotional, both won the Gold Medallion Award.
Henry lives with his wife, Marilynn, in Rex, Georgia. He has five children (Richard, Tom, Melvin, Norman, and Carrie), all of whom are serving in Christian ministry, and fourteen grandchildren. His long-range goal is to encourage revival and spiritual awakening in the United States, Canada, and across the world through speaking, praying, enlisting, writing and mentoring.

Reviews - What do customers think about Experiencing the Word Through the Gospels?
An interesting first look at the HCSB.... Apr 5, 2000
This book is a release of the four Gospels from the Holman Christian Standard Bible translation with snippets of commentary from Henry Blackaby. The translation reads remarkably like the NIV, with occasional departures on sentence structure and the like. The translators seem to be using the Nestle-Aland greek text as the source(same as NIV). What sets this translation apart are the small differences. Capitalization of pronouns regarding Christ; quoted text from the Old Testament is set in bold. Also, there seems to be a greater number of footnotes with more references to the original greek. I was pleased to see several footnotes regarding the literal word structure of passages. Although not part of the translation itself, the book contains several word studies on important usages of greek terms alongside the bits of commentary by Mr. Blackaby. The commentary is more inspirational than informational, but a welcome addition nonetheless.
All in all, if you like and use the NIV or NASB, then this book is a good way to take another look at the Gospels.
