Former Australian prime minister Scott Morrison opens up about his faith in new memoir

by Kelly Valencia

Former Prime Minister of Australia, Scott Morrison, is set to share more details about his Christian faith in a new book scheduled for release in 2024.

The book, titled 'Plans For Your Good: A Prime Minister's Testimony of God's Faithfulness', will delve into his experience of being in a top political position and how his Pentecostal faith has influenced him.

According to Thomas Nelson, a division of HarperCollins Christian Publishing, the book is described as "less of a political memoir and more of a pastoral encouragement," offering a "unique insider's account of a Christian who was open about his faith and operated at the highest levels of politics for over a decade".

Morrison served as prime minister of Australia from 2018 to 2022 as the leader of the Liberal Party, and has consistently been vocal about his faith.

In 2021, during an interview with Weekend Australia, Morrison revealed that gave his life to Jesus at a Boys’ Brigade camp when he was 12 years old.  He grew up in a Presbyterian Christian family, but now identifies as a Pentecostal and regularly attends Horizon Church in Sydney, which is affiliated with the Assemblies of God in Australia.

In 2020, a video of the former primer minister praying to God for help as the Coronavirus continued to spread uncontrollably went viral. He was recorded saying: "Father, give us strength here in this country, give us wisdom, give us judgment, give us encouragement. Let your peace reign, let your love shower this nation at this time, and let your people - those who trust in you, Lord - be instruments for your love, for your compassion, for your justice, your mercy, your grace. Let us be lights in a time of great darkness."

Last year, Morrison conceded election defeat after his Liberal-National coalition failed to win enough seats in the general election. Anthony Lebanese, the leader of the Labor Party, became the country’s new prime minister.

The book’s description continues: “Full of fascinating insights into the handling of some of the most significant global events and issues of our time Morrison's honest, vulnerable and reflective answers offer a unique lens to better understand your relationship with God and the blessing that can flow from such a relationship.”

The memoir will be released on 21st May 2024.
