New book is willing to help turn the tide by using wisdom of Solomon

Are you concerned about the pervasive moral decline and the doing away with the traditional Judeo-Christian values upon which our country was founded? John M. Johnson's debut, Moral Makeover (paperback, 978-1-60477-920-2), is willing to help turn the tide of the moral decline in our nation--beginning with an inner examination.

Drawing from the wisdom found in the Old Testament book of Proverbs, eight major principles are examined: righteousness, humility, absolute truth, inner initiative, generosity, commitment, equal justice, and peace. This book demonstrates that the wisdom of Solomon is as contemporary as the daily news headline. Each chapter is filled with notable quotes and key proverbs, delivering to readers a renewed appreciation for this often overlooked section of the Bible.

Says Johnson, "This book speaks out on issues that we all question, but do not hear mentioned by leaders of this generation. "[Readers will gain] a new appreciation of why morality is important to God and to every individual."

The author says many writers are eager to tell war stories of how down in the dumps their lives were before coming to a place of victory about which they can write. "It just has the aura of excitement," he says. So who is he to be writing, you may ask? Johnson's life could have easily been in the dumps, too, had it not been for an ounce of prevention. "To some that may not have the flare of a 'success story,'" he says. "However, I assure you it is every bit as much of a success story as one who went to the bottom to come out on top! Perhaps it s the true version of success--lasting success."

Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 5,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Moral Makeover through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
