Readers will be inspired to help others during this time of financial depression

When Pastor Jack Myers and his wife Myralee decided to give half their savings to prevent two of their church's staff members from being laid off, they started a chain reaction that reverberated not only through their church but through their whole community and eventually the nation and the world. John Killinger's The Zacchaeus Solution: How Christians Should Behave in the Face of Economic Recession ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-61579-804-9) is a heart-warming story about the Christian ethic in action. Readers should be warned that they won't be the same after reading it, and they may feel led to give away their money or possessions to help others during this time of financial desperation. This life-changing book reminds Christians of how much God has put the power in their hands to do things in the face of apparently overwhelming odds.

Of his hope for the book, the author says, "I would like [readers] to feel so uplifted by the stories in this novel that they will begin to ask, 'What can I give to relieve somebody in this awful crisis?' Then, as their thoughts turn into actions, they too will feel wonderful and their deeds will become contagious among other Christians."

A widely known preacher, author, and seminary professor, Killinger has pastored many churches, including the First Presbyterian Church of Lynchburg, Virginia, and the First Congregational Church of Los Angeles. Although he is the author of more than 60 books, he believes this book may be the most important one he has ever written. "Like Charles Sheldon's novel that led millions in the Great Depression to ask, 'What would Jesus do?' it has the power to alter how we believe and live," he says.

Xulon Press, a division of Salem Communications, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 7,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order The Zacchaeus Solution through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors. The Zacchaeus Solution is available online through,, and
