The Book

This book consists of a selection of readings that appeared originally, in different form, on the website The postings on that site are based on S. Tory Teller‘s 20-plus years of daily journaling, which, in essence, is a written conversation with God. That conversation flows from reading and studying Scripture, praying, and listening to the Holy Spirit. Each chapter in this book is intended to help you in the process of maturing as a Christian, whether you are a new believer or one who wants to continue on the path of growth in Christ. If you are not yet a believer, there is still time before the train leaves. Welcome!
The storyline begins when the narrator, S. Tory Teller, has just become a Christian but does not know what to do next. Proceeding to find out, he is led to a man named Stan, who becomes his mentor, discipling him in his faith as they meet regularly for conversation over breakfast.
Each conversation is followed by Scripture that connects to that day’s subject. Then there is a prayer that leads to deeper understanding. Finally, there are “Think on This” points intended to stimulate further thought and discussion with others who are also “waiting for the train.” I encourage you to write your thoughts. Journaling has made a significant difference in my faith walk, and it may in yours as well.
