A new book, titled “CURE FOR MORAL CANCER,” is published by a teacher, pastor and author who chooses to be known only as Smith. The central theme of Smith’s work is to identify the only effective cure for the moral illness crippling the world and its inhabitants. It has to do with a lifestyle and unique action that eliminates the infection and provides ultimate health for the individual, the community, the nation.

The inspiration for this book is a deepening concern about the basic moral problem that is still proliferating in the 21st century. It describes the unique Christian cure for the moral illness that has crippled mankind throughout history and still runs rampant today. It examines this problem identified by all major religions and philosophies of the world, and then follows the detailed description of the proven and fully available (though sometimes unpleasant) cure. Best of all, it provides instructions for the antitoxin to prevent re-infection.

This work is backed by Smith’s education and years of counseling individuals and families, daily newspaper and television reports along with reading a broad spectrum of written materials, studying the Scriptures, and seeing continued tension and destruction on personal, national and international levels. However, the author says that it is no accident that his name is missing here, as the fundamental thesis of the text demands that this work and any good result from it be credited to the glory of God and not the promotion of one man.

Because the effect of the disease, this moral cancer, touches every level of life worldwide, “CURE FOR MORAL CANCER,” has a deeply universal appeal. Persons who may or may not have an interest and commitment to the Christian faith will find a clear call to recognize and address the root of this destructive disease which has touched every person alive.
