When a verse such as II Chronicles 7:14 becomes so familiar it loses its impact, the need arises for a fresh, in-depth exploration of the intent

Patsy Boyd McSpadden’s new book If My People… ($13.99, paperback, 9781545601488; $6.99, eBook, 9781545601495 ) is a call to deepen readers understanding and application of the well-known and oft-quoted verse in II Chronicles, "If my people which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven, forgive their sin, and heal their land." This book reveals that a Christian's influence in the world has its relevance in one's authenticity and faithfulness to God. The pathway to an authentic Christian life that brings God's touch to the world is presented in II Chronicles 7:14. Readers will realize the essential necessity of on-going spiritual growth and pursuit of God if we as Christians are to make a positive difference in the world. Hopefully readers will realize that whether or not God heals America, He knows how to deliver the godly from judgment.
McSpadden writes, “When a verse such as II Chronicles 7:14 becomes so familiar it loses its impact, the need arises for a fresh, in-depth exploration of the intent and significance of such a verse. To see this verse in this "new" light, may be shocking to the sensitive reader who has perhaps taken for granted an understanding that may be insufficient and who may have assumed some conventional or customary meaning.”
For more than 30 years following what she believed to be a God-given dream about this verse, Patsy Boyd McSpadden has pursued an understanding and application of this scripture in her life (with failure and with success). During that time, she has sought to understand and apply each phrase of the verse in her quest for God. McSpadden has experienced transformation and healing in many areas of her heart, her family and relationships. In time, she came to a strong, immovable conviction that this verse reveals the way to life and wraps all the meaning of the word of God in its message.
