GOD’S AD-MAN: IT’S A VERY VALUABLE BOOK
Author and Historian: Stuart Piggin
Thank you for God’s Ad-Man. It is a very valuable book. The Lord has uniquely gifted you and you have honoured the Lord by using your gift for imaginative innovation with such determination and courage. There is probably a connection between your creativity and your depression, but you must often have prayed, ‘Lord let me be creative without being depressed’. The story of your experience of depression will be a comfort and a practical guide to many, I’m sure.
In fact, your whole account is refreshingly honest and without any religious hype. Even the account of your brother’s struggles will encourage many especially as there is so much attention to sexual orientation these days. My wife, Rosemary, and I thought Bruce’s Darryl Lee story was hilarious. The Lord has obviously blessed you in recent years in the building up of the Baptist Church at St Ives.
But, before that, your advertising on behalf of Christian organisations clearly benefitted them. I was astonished, for example, to learn that you were behind the ‘Which…’ campaign. I used to study the ‘Which Christian Mission?’ material with great interest.
It was also fascinating, of course, to read about your brush with such great ones as Liberace. You did well to take the trouble to write your story.
GOD’S AD-MAN: FASCINATING!
Rev. Assoc. Professor Darrell Jackson, Whitley College, Melbourne.
I’ve been reading your book. Fascinating! You’ve had such a rich and full life and career. Ups and downs.
Well done and congratulations on a book which I believe will be of interest to many people.
THIS IS A BOOK TO ENCOURAGE, AND EVEN INSPIRE, ITS READERS.
Hugh Mackay, Author and Social Researcher
Unusually frank and open, and unerringly honest in its revelations, God’s Ad-Man is a testament to the determination, the resilience, and the faith of its author, Tom Glynn.
From an unpromising start, Glynn built a remarkably successful business career while, from his middle years on, he struggled to come to terms with the debilitating bleakness of clinical depression.
This is a book to encourage, and even inspire, its readers – particularly those struggling with their own doubts and demons.
