"Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me." (Psalm 51:10)
These beautifully simplistic, yet profound words of repentance from King David are the inspiration from which this book was written. The author, Patrick Dillon, feels this heartfelt cry is urgently needed in today’s society,
“Serious events are taking place in the world and in our own personal lives
– it’s time to renew our faith and become steadfast in our convictions.”
This is a mixture of Holy Scripture, personal perspective, and family stories dating back four generations from the tail end of the Gold Rush, the Great Depression, up to current events. Topics such as Evolution, abortion, voting, peer pressure, baseball, Israel, and the present “great recession” are passionately discussed.
The author’s friendly candid style evokes an array of emotions. He challenges himself and his readers to truly commit to God, a God who deeply loves us and desires our very best. It is Patrick’s sincere aspiration that those who read this will have a renewed sense of true hope that only God can give.
Winners and finalists traversed the publishing landscape: Simon & Schuster, Penguin/Putnum, Rodale, McGraw-Hill, John Wiley & Sons, Moody Publishers, American Cancer Society, Sourcebooks & hundreds of independent houses contributed to this year’s outstanding BBA competition. Keen adds, “BBA’s success begins with the enthusiastic participation of authors and publishers and continues with our distinguished panel of industry judges who bring to the table their extensive editorial, PR, marketing, and design expertise.”
