After losing his family, home and possessions, Terry Caffey,
the sole surviving victim of a brutal Texas murder, reveals
how God intervened and helped him turn his life around.
At 3:00 a.m. on March 1, 2008, Terry Caffey awoke to find
his daughter’s boyfriend standing in his bedroom with a gun.
An instant later the teen opened fire, killing Terry’s wife,
his two sons, and wounding him 12 times, before setting the
house ablaze. Terry fell into deep depression and planned to
kill himself, but God intervened.
Upon visiting his burned-out property, Terry noticed a
scorched scrap of paper from one of his wife’s books leaning
against a tree trunk. The page read: “[God,] I couldn’t
understand why You would take my family and leave me behind
to struggle along without them. And I guess I still don’t
totally understand that part of it. But I do believe that
You’re sovereign; You’re in control.” That page was like a
direct message from God, and it turned Terry’s life around.
Now, one year later, Terry is remarried, the adoptive father
of two young sons, and working to rebuild his relationship
with his 17-year-old daughter, who is currently serving two
life sentences in a Texas state penitentiary for her
involvement in the crimes.
Terror by Night tells the compelling story of how Terry
Caffey found peace after his wife and sons were brutally
murdered and his teenage daughter implicated in the crime.
Sharing never-before-told details about the night of the
crime and subsequent murder trial, it explains how Terry was
able to forgive the men who murdered his family, and how he
even interceded with the prosecutors on their behalf. A
powerful example of how the power of forgiveness can bring
healing after tragedy and great loss, it shows how God can
bring good out of even the darkest tragedies.
