The dichotomy of Christians doing good in the name of Christianity, as well as using the religion to satisfy their pride, ego, amass wealth and justify ethnic purity and racial superiority is more evident in our culture and society today than ever before. Xulon Press author, John Benton Jones, in his bold and riveting memoir, Forget Me Not: Determined That I Would Live My Life as God Intended, reveals how he was able to understand this dichotomy and why he is able to believe, with certainty, despite experiences that may suggest the contrary, that Christianity is indeed a good religion.

Forget Me Not: Determined That I Would Live My Life as God Intended is an inspirational story chronicling how John Benton, using the counsel of a soft whispering voice called Forget Me Not, returned to the Christian faith after years of wandering. John Benton turned away from the Christian religion after being humiliated and put in a life threatening situation by white men in downtown Naples, Texas in 1942. Reverend Billy Graham says this voice who counseled and guided him back, Forget Me Not, is “not an impersonal force like gravity or magnetism. He is a person with all the attributes of personality. But He is not only a person. He is Divine.”
