Product Description

This is a book to stir your faith. It will encourage you to trust in a God who is mighty in working to change lives. And that is surely something we all need to know more of. It is about Hugh Hill and how God saved him, moulded him and used him. In our world of indifference. It is so stirring to read of God coming and converting a 42-year-old successful businessman with a drink problem. The book is a real page-turner as God's grace is so demonstrably seen. The testimonies of those connected with Hugh in different phases of his experience add colour and insight into how God worked in Hugh's life. Here is a book to read. Please get it, read it and be encouraged. God is alive and can do for many others what he has done for Hugh. Praise the LORD! In this autobiographical account, "I Did It His Way", Hugh Hill demonstrates this fact in a gripping and relevant way. He is honest in all he says, seeking to paint a picture of what God has done in and through his life. Throughout the book we find a person who has come to love the Jesus who has saved him, and wants to live his life His way. Hugh takes us from his materialistic and alcoholic days to his conversion. We see God who not only saves through His Son, but also breaks the power of sin and addiction. We then see Hugh mould his business life according to the priorities of Christ, and the real ways God intervenes in various situations. Eventually we find Hugh working briefly for CPO prior to his call to the Christian ministry. This book is not about what a man can do, but what a difference God makes in a person's life and can do through them. This aspect is greatly helped by various testimonies interspersed through the book describing various experiences of family members, as well as colleagues and those affected by his pastoral ministry. It will encourage any reader, whether pastor, church member or unbeliever, of what God can do for them, in them and through them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommendation by an Old Friend 18 Aug 2009
As a young Pastor in my first church, struggling with all sorts of issues that I didn't really understand, I was very fortunate to make friends with Hugh Hill. He was something of a father figure to me and a great source of wisdom. Not only so but he was a man of real character and genuine integrity. Yet he was also honest about his humanity, being the first to confess that without Christ he would be nothing but a lost, angry, alcoholic. I cannot wait to read the full story of his life and ministry.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Appreciation 18 Jun 2009
In many ways this is an extraordinary book written in a most readable fashion. I virtually went through the 200 pages in one session which for me is a rarity. (I usually have several books to wade through all the time). Hugh Hill writes as he speaks in the language of ordinary people and with some rare insights.

The story of Hugh's conversation has been shared with hundreds of people across the United Kingdom. I first came across him when he was a relatively new Christian, Circumstances which he unpacks caused him to leave Glasgow and head to the coastal resort of Worthing which he dubs as `not exactly the ends of the earth'! Here he commenced work with the CPO an organisation committed to Christian Literature he also joined the church which I pastored for nearly thirty years. He showed marked signs of leadership and an obvious preaching gift. I encouraged him to attend the London Theological Seminary, a course well geared to allow him also to superintend our branch church on a working class estate.

His experience as a businessman with its successes and failures along with the attendant problems of alcoholism was to give him a rare background to draw on in the future. He received in the university of life an education which even the benefits of LTS could not equal. The threat also of a broken marriage in his pre Christian days would give him great sensitivity as a pastor. His radical John-Newton-type conversion is proof of the power of the gospel in the life of an ordinary person. Billy Graham is quoted as saying that one can argue against a theology but not against a changed life.

As for style, the book is unusually if not uniquely constructed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gods Grace in Action 8 Jun 2009
Hugh Hill tells the story of how as a successful business man but an alcoholic God met with him and his wife in a remarkable way.

Having started the book I found it difficult to put down as he recounts how God had worked in his and his wifes life bringing them to a personal knowledge of Jesus Christ as their Saviour and Lord.

The work of his printing company was revolutionized as he sought to apply Christian principles to the business, refusing to print for the drinks trade but printing rather those things that were wholesome and good.

Later the business went bankrupt through no fault of Hugh's and he worked first for a Christian printer on the South Coast before going into the Christian Ministry where he Pastored three churches before his retirement from the Christian Ministry in 2007.

He and his wife now head up part time a training scheme for Independent churches in the North of England.

The book also gives the testimony's of four people from vastly different backgrounds who Hugh was instrumental in leading to the Lord during his years in Christian service.

The overriding theme for me in the book was that what man could not do God did in the life of Hugh, his wife Joyce and their family.Having been enslaved to alcohol God delivered him and drew him to Himself, to God be all the glory.

A book which is well worth reading, one that will warm the hearts of Gods people and one from which many can learn a great deal.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sad. 25 Dec 2010
This is a cringe worthy story of a man who swapped one addiction for another. Read Hardy, or Twain or even Dan Brown rather than this.
