More About the Author

Jim Daly's personal journey from orphan to head of an international Christian organization dedicated to helping families thrive is a powerful story. Abandoned by his alcoholic father at age 5, Daly lost his mother to cancer four years later - a wound deepened when his grieving stepfather emptied the family home and took off with almost everything while Daly, the youngest of five children, and his siblings were at their mother's funeral.

Several tough years in foster care followed, before Daly became a Christian in high school and found meaning, purpose and a sense of belonging.

"I am living proof," he wrote in his 2007 autobiography, Finding Home, "that no matter how torn up the road has already been, or how pothole-infested it may look ahead, nothing -- nothing -- is impossible for God."

Daly assumed the presidency of Focus on the Family in 2005 after 16 years with the ministry. He started his career in 1989 as an assistant to the president, where his primary duties were fostering relationships with supporters. When the International Department was created in 1992, Daly was appointed field director for Asia, Africa and Australia. In 1997, he was promoted to vice president of the International Division.

Daly earned additional responsibilities in 2003 when he was named group vice president, charged with directing the strategic path of the organization. In 2004, he was appointed chief operating officer, the role he held until he was handpicked by Focus on the Family founder Dr. James Dobson to be the group's president.

Daly is a graduate of California State University, San Bernardino, earning a B.S. in Business Administration in 1984. During his senior year of study, he attended Waseda University in Tokyo. After graduating, Daly worked in the private sector for a FORTUNE 500 company.

In 1997, Daly completed his MBA in International Business at Regis University in Denver. In 2009, he received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree from Colorado Christian University in Denver.

Daly has received the 2008 World Children's Center Humanitarian Award, the 2009 Children's Hunger Fund Children's Champion Award, and the 2010 HomeWord Family Ministry Award. He has appeared on such television programs as Glenn Beck, Hannity and Your World with Neil Cavuto, and is a regular panelist for The Washington Post/Newsweek blog "On Faith" alongside leading academics and theologians.

Daly's second book, Stronger, was released in August 2010. It discusses in depth the ways God works through tragedy in the lives of His people.

Daly was born in 1961 and has been married to his wife, Jean, since 1986. They have two sons and reside in Colorado Springs, Colo.

I love the biblical truth in this book.
TrappinGramma
In our culture that's so hyper-politicized and crass in how folks treat each other, ReFocus serves as a good reminder and encouragement to Christians.

Format: Hardcover
Focus on the Family president Jim Daly is clearly absolutely passionate about reaching and engaging with those living apart from Christ in a way that is truly Christ-like. That is what this important book, ReFocus, is all about. As Jim himself writes, "This isn't a book about what's going badly in the culture, but rather about how Christians should respond to it."

It is a hope-filled book filled with insights, personal stories and challenges Christians need to hear and be inspired by. Jim brings us back to the practical living out of Christian faith by showing Christ's love to others through our words and actions. It reads relatively quickly, but it will be 200 pages of time very well spent.

Format: Hardcover
Jim Daly's "ReFocus" is an important book for Christians to read. In it, he talks not so much about what is going badly in the culture, but rather about how Christians should respond to it. He talks about standing firm on principles while we make sure our hearts are in the right place. He reminds us that God doesn't call us to "win," but rather to obey Him and be faithful, letting HIM take care of the outcome.

In our culture that's so hyper-politicized and crass in how folks treat each other, ReFocus serves as a good reminder and encouragement to Christians. You leave the book understanding that whatever happens, Jesus is King, but that we still have important work to do and that how we do it serves as a witness to a hurting world.

Definitely recommend it :-)

I love the biblical truth in this book. It has helped me to be a better disiple in these very difficult times. I read it to help me better represent my self as a Christian with the far left friends and family I deal with on a regular basis during the election. I really enjoyed the book and feel it has enriched my relationship with God and others.

Great book for the true Christian who wants to be like Christ. Jim has a Christian heart for all people. He is right, we can't forget that we don't need to change our world through politics but through the hearts of the people. The Truths of the Bible must be our conscience not the world view. Thanks to Jim for his personal experiences he reveals to us in this book.

Format: Hardcover
Jim Daly's REFOCUS is a breath of fresh air. It is just marvelously done. Jim confirms that the principles upon which Focus was born remain, and in fact, have been strengthened and confirmed for a new era of the ministry.

But Daly also shows that Focus on the Family has a tempo, tone, and culture-shaping ethos that fits a new era: It is a tone of civility, diplomacy, kindness, generosity of soul and spirit, and is apologetic about the first principles which remain immutable over time and through time.

In other words, REFOCUS underscores that the tempo and style of Focus on the Family in the 21st century will be God-pleasing in its beautiful and singular ministry defending and nurturing the natural family, marriage, the rearing and raising of good kids, the sanctity and dignity of every life, and the calling of adoption, foster care, and orphan care.

In sum, REFOCUS builds the blue print for how American evangelicalism will navigate a new century, and led by a man whose vision, mission, and calling - indeed his vocation - is rooted in those beautiful words of Saint Peter: "..that you may declare the wonderful deeds of Him who has called you out of darkness into His marvelous light."

REFOCUS arrives at exactly the right time; its mission is culture-shaping and culture-impacting in a way that is God-pleasing. At this cultural moment, there could not be a more important and more worthwhile read.

That's right. This guy is the most believable christian I've ever encountered.
He brings the real world into focus and then into re-focus as society changes
and we still want to be Jesus to the world. It's hard. Being a christian today isn't easy.
