Essential reading
5 stars By Jo, Jun 08 2010
I have been blessed to be a student of Geoff Waughs in the COC Bible College in Brisbane.  This book was such a blessing.  It showed how God has been such a huge part of Geoffs life, since he was a young boy.  It was really inspiring to read the book and to realise all the amazing things God has done through Geoff, that he is not just a teacher on revivals, he is really someone who lives it!  I highly reccommend this book.  We need more fathers in the faith who have walked with Jesus for so long and who have seen real moves of the Holy Spirit to share with us and encourage us like Geoff does in this book.This is not just a biography, it is a book that will teach and inspire you in your walk with God.

Discovering renewal and revival
5 stars By Geoff Waugh, May 04 2010
This book traces the author's journey through a lifetime of discovering renewal and revival.  He explores the transforming and unpredictable nature of God's Spirit now touching and changing people in all denominations and in all countries.  

The book will interest people who love to read about renewal in the church and revival in the world.  The author's other books such as "Flashpoints of Revival" and "Revival in the South Pacific" give fuller and more general descriptions of God's transforming work around the world.  This autobiography gives a personal account of the author's experience of renewal and revival in Australia, the South Pacific, and in other nations.

"Looking to Jesus" points continually to Jesus, the One who renews and revives us by his Spirit within us and who is so powerfully at work in the whole world.

Invitation to a journey
5 stars By John Olley, Apr 26 2010
Geoff Waugh's life and ministry have influenced people all around the world. This autobiography with reflections will be of interest not only to those who know him. Beginning in Australia, then Papua New Guinea, his invited ministry in renewal and revival has involved every continent. While he has written "Flashpoints of Revival"  (recently updated) recounting revivals in the past three hundred years around the world and many books of bible studies this book "Looking to Jesus" has a different  focus, as Geoff traces his journey from strong roots which remained the solid core of his life from childhood to marriage to retirement. Here is a personal journey with reflections that will enrich the lives of all readers. As he ?looked to Jesus? along the way he was opened up to many exciting new ventures in Australia and into countries where revival and renewal is vibrant, changing many lives. Although a biography, many others are involved. Geoff?s journey is like a rose bush with strong roots and branches. He is one bud of many, opening into a beautiful bloom as he opened himself to God?s leading into an exciting journey.  A bonus is an appendix with outlines of his other works.

Mr
3 stars By Romulo Nayacalevu, Apr 15 2010
Dr Waugh's account in "Looking to Jesus" demonstrates his passion and servanthood life, displayed in His calling from the pulpit to the mountains and valleys of the Pacific and beyond. His passion, zeal and commitment to the Gospel makes Him a true missionary to places where we wouldnt dare. I would recommend this book to all, the story of a man who is truly sold out to His King and Master - the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dr. Waugh's personal journey and convictions is a testimony to people like me who are trying to be available to God's call.  Dr Waugh remains a mentor and a friend and "Looking to Jesus" can be no more the simplest way of describing Dr. Waugh's faith journey. His testimony will challenge us all about our priorities and the true meaning of Obedience. A STRONGLY recommended read
