Praise for Saving a Sick America
“Saving a Sick America is a modern-day wakeup call for the church. Dr. Michael L. Brown rightly recognizes that we live in dire times, and yet he offers a hopeful prescription for how the church can seize this moment for good. This book is insightful, convicting, and yet inspiring. My hat is off to Dr. Brown for having the courage to write this book.”
--Sean McDowell, PhD, professor at Biola University, popular speaker, and bestselling author of more than 18 books including A New Kind of Apologist
“America is getting weaker and weaker spiritually, politically, economically, militarily, and socially--Or is it? Dr. Michael L. Brown carefully documents this reality and depicts how God historically has moved in and through his people to get a national house in order after a foundation of prayer was laid. Society has been sick before, to the point that leadership in its day would say the nation was at the precipice of destruction. Then ‘God moved,’ and the issues in society were addressed. Yes, we are sick, but the cure is eminent. Dr. Brown has done an outstanding job of challenging the followers of Jesus to believe and follow God. This is a revolutionary book that can change America. I heartily recommend it.”
--Tom Phillips, vice president/Billy Graham Library, author, Revival Signs: Join the Coming Great Awakening
“At a moment when many American Christians are looking for a safe retreat from the culture and its wars, Dr. Michael L. Brown offers a robust and compelling case that Christians must work for good in culture and politics, even at the darkest moment. At the same time, he insists that our culture cannot be fully healed without the transforming power of the Holy Spirit in both the church and our individual lives. Should we work for positive change or pray for spiritual renewal? The answer is not either-or. It’s both-and.”
--Jay Richards, PhD, New York Times bestselling author and senior fellow at the Discovery Institute
“Dr. Michael L. Brown delivers a healthy antidote to the sickness that is plaguing America. This book is much more than religious moralism; it’s a call to authenticity and a biblical application of the gospel for our time. Saving a Sick America is the prescription we need so that God will heal our land.”
--Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church
“Dr. Michael L. Brown inspires people to seek out the truth about God and faith.”
--Ted Cruz, US Senator from Texas
“By accurately diagnosing just how sick America is, Dr. Michael L. Brown can now offer a hope-filled prescription for moral and cultural change based on the timeless principles of the Word of God. While some are throwing in the towel and calling on the church to retreat, Dr. Brown sees the current darkness as the church’s great opportunity to arise and shine. America has fallen, but it can rise again.”
--Dr. Robert Jeffress, pastor of First Baptist Church, Dallas
About the Book
Nationally syndicated radio host and columnist Michael L. Brown provides a handbook for a biblically-based moral and cultural renaissance, revealing that the key to recapturing America’s greatness consists in returning to our spiritual and moral roots.
America is at a tipping point, and never has this been more apparent than right now. We are in danger of losing our spiritual and moral heritage, making many believe that we have fallen beyond the point of recovery. This book is here to say, that, yes, we have fallen. In fact, fallen much further than we realize, but that our country’s best days are ahead—with the help of a radical, moral, and cultural revolution, beginning with the church. This book is a manual for the revolution.
On all fronts, Americans are talking about the need for revolution, arguing from the left and the right that “the status quo must go!” This book comes at just the right time, as people are wondering what in the world has happened to our country—from the homes to the college campuses, from the inner cities to the White House, from our national debt to the material found on our computers and TV screens. In clear, compelling prose, Brown covers topics ranging from the sexualization of pop culture to the dumbing down of our schools to the undermining of family structures to a pervasive culture of entitlement, while pointing consistently to the Bible’s solution to these issues. A radical call for reformation written with sobriety and hope, Saving a Sick America provides the inspiration and guidance necessary for a moral and cultural revolution.
