An inspiration to those individuals faced with insurmountable odds

An unknown public servant in the city of Orangeburg, South Carolina, podiatrist Dr. Michael Wilson, DPM was suddenly thrust onto the national stage in a run for US Congress. Death of a Politician: One Man’s Run from Defeat to Victory ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-61379-503-3; $7.99, eBook, 978-1-61379-653-5)—a new Xulon Press book that has been seven years in the making—is about the lessons the author learned from his run for public office and how he endured after the congressional campaign unexpectedly crashed. He also describes his history of service that ultimately led to an attempt a politics and how he recovered from life-altering challenges, all the time destined by God to survive to continue to serve others.

“This book should serve as an inspiration to those individuals faced with insurmountable odds in achieving a goal or a dream, no matter how steep the challenge,” the author says. “When one’s attempts fail the first, second, or even the third time around, one must never, ever give up, especially your faith. The success of victory is indeed achievable if you believe and trust in Him. In this, you are truly blessed and destined for greatness.”
