The Holidays Most Coveted Book: Higher Is Waiting


Tyler Perry has always relied on the word of God to lift him up in troubling times, but even he admits the onslaught of negative headlines over the past 18 months has tested his spirit.

“I got so consumed with this (presidential) election and the negativity of the campaign and all of the horrible things that were being said back and forth … (and now) the threat of nuclear war in North Korea, and I just found myself completely getting lost in it, waking up sad and depressed and didn’t know why,” he said.

So the entertainment mogul decided to stop waking up with bad news, restricting his TV diet to only certain times of the day so that it wasn’t flooding his brain. But the film and TV mogul also held tighter to what he says has kept him balanced — his faith.

Perry details that faith in his new book, “Higher Is Waiting,” published by Spiegel & Grau. It’s part autobiography, part Bible-study guide. Perry uses examples from his own life, from living with an abusive father to his early missteps in show business, to show how faith led him through; each story leads back to a Bible passage to underscore the point.
