David Pawson – Author, Bible Teacher
The book called The Road to Hell was advertised in a national magazine in England as: “Read David Pawson’s autobiography… The Road to Hell”. But actually, that book was a miracle. I was going to Italy to speak at a conference, and I had a big case with my clothes in and a little black briefcase and inside the briefcase was the entire manuscript of the book The Road to Hell. I write all my books with a fountain pen and there was only one manuscript of it.
And when I got to the airport in Bologna, it was midnight, it was dark and the rain was pouring down, and we went to the car park. And the pastor meeting me said, “Get into the car, and I’ll put your luggage in the back of the car.” I think you call the boot the… sorry? Right, the trunk. That’s it.
So we got to his house an hour later, and he opened the trunk and pulled out my case and then closed the trunk. I said, “Just a minute, there’s my briefcase.”
“No,” he said, “there was only the case.” And he hadn’t seen the black briefcase on the luggage trolley because it was so dark and wet.
