George W. Braswell, Jr.’s new book, CROSSROADS OF RELIGION AND REVOLUTION ($15.99, paperback, 978-1-62509-234-2; $7.99, e-book, 978-1-62509-235-9) narrates the author’s experience of observing and experiencing two major religious revolutions in Iran and the “take over” of the largest protestant denomination. Braswell has survived this unique life experience and writes to tell about it.
“I hope readers may observe and even experience one individual’s journey from growing up in a small southern American town in the days of segregation to living in a multimillion population of 98 percent Muslims where the individual is an obvious minority,” states the author. “I hope readers will gain a sense of hope and courage from my pilgrimage from the guidance of friends and neighbors in church and community to participate in unending opportunities in multiple nations and cultures. Anything is possible with purpose, commitment, hard work, and the loving support of family, church and community.”
