ATLANTA As the influence of the Christian church has declined throughout society, Christians are witnessing a loss of respect for the truth, human life, the family, and God. In his new book,“Hope for This Present Crisis,” Dr. Michael Youssef writes, The world is splintering into hostile tribes and warring factions, fueled by hate and cruelty on the Internet. Although foreign nations and terror groups are trying to do harm, the real threat to civilization comes from a steep decline of faith, truth, and morality, weakening our society from within.

In a time of crisis, we need all hands on deck. We need Christians who will leap into action, do the job that needs to be done, and rally their fellows with words of encouragement and inspiration. Even in this crisis, there is hope—but only if God’s people wake up in time.

“What can one Christian, one family, or one church do? Let me share God’s seven-step solution to our present crisis. Armed with God’s truth and armored for the spiritual battle ahead, you can help change the world. It all begins with the life-changing, world changing good news of Jesus Christ.”

In Hope for This Present Crisis,” Dr. Michael Youssef provides a diagnosis of the insanity of the current culture and a seven-step prescription for restoring sanity to a world gone mad:

  • Remember the Truth – Stand firm on the truth of the Gospel.
  • Restore the Soul – Seek God’s approval─ not the approval of other people.
  • Revitalize the Family – Guard your children from the horrors of the Internet.
  • Reestablish the Classroom – Support conscientious, caring public school teachers.
  • Respect our Freedoms – Know your rights.
  • Reform our Society – Morally and spiritually purify yourself.
  • Revive the Church – Demonstrate the forgiving love of Jesus at all times.

“Hope for This Present Crisis” is available through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, BAM, ChristianBook.com, and Leading The Way.
