)-- New Book Uses Barack Obama’s Success to Show Importance of Giving Back.
Author Provides Intriguing Discourse on Consequences of Irresponsible Fathers in ‘Saving Obama: Freeing Us from the Sins of Our Fathers.’
In November of this year, history will be made in America. The country will vote in a presidential election that includes a candidate of African-American descent, Barack Obama. In a new book by John Maxwell, Saving Obama: Freeing Us from the Sins of Our Fathers, he offers an inspirational narrative about how Obama’s success personifies the American struggle of overcoming the faults of fathers and rising above the pain, hatred and divisiveness that legacy has created.
The “sins of our fathers” represent the neglect of fathers’ responsibilities to their families. They leave children with emptiness and pain, which breeds anger, hate and struggle, Maxwell writes. Saving Obama: Freeing Us from the Sins of Our Fathers is a powerful book that encourages all Americans to step up and offer the love and guidance needed to redeem these sins and create more success stories like Barack Obama’s. As the child of a single mother, Obama is the model for all young people dealt less than ideal situations.
“Obama representatively is any troubled youth,” writes Maxwell in the book. “Let’s not cling to excuses for not cleaning our streets that are covered with pain and misery. Let’s not allow our children to suffer and hide behind our own failures. Let us support Obama’s attempt at greatness by giving back to this country and loving our brothers for the new possibilities that now exist. Let us accept that within the sins of our fathers lies Obama, who rises and extracts the goodness from our suffering and pain of the past. No matter the outcome of this election, Obama has shown us the greatness of this country and the possibility that lies hidden within the sins of our fathers.”
In a mixture of prose and poetry, Maxwell’s new book is a truly nonpartisan discourse on nurturing and giving back to those who have not been able to take full advantage of the blessings of America.
Through the prism of the seven deadly sins, he describes the damaging negativity in society today and extrapolates on the consequences of hatred and destruction. Maxwell tackles the difficult issues of race, religion, politics and anger, all while praising Obama’s staggering success and reminding readers that if citizens would provide support and love to those who need it most, Obama’s heart-warming life story would be a more common one.
