This was what I looked like when I became a Christian through the ministry of Campus Crusade for Christ. I was nineteen. Before that time, I never had a deep thought. In fact, I scrupulously avoided them, choosing instead to pursue a lifestyle of bacchanalia.
Once I became a Christian, however, my desire to learn kicked in, and it has never stopped. In addition to my formal education, which ended with all but a dissertation for a Ph.D. from Emory, I also spent three summers studying at Crusade’s Institute of Biblical Studies. This is where my worldview was established, and it has not changed since I was about twenty years old.
I still believe the same things now that I believed then. My beliefs and values aren’t going to change. I couldn’t change who I am, even if I wanted to, and I don’t. Based on my grounded worldview, everything else in life has followed. I view reality through the grid of my Christian belief system. It’s my anchor in life, and it’s the specific reason why I am not tossed about by events that throw many of my friends into a dither.
My life has certainly not been easy, any those of you who have read my memoir—”Hi, My Name Is Jack”—know, but my character has become deeper and richer by walking through the valley and not trying to avoid it. All of this led me to write my newest book, “I Am Not Ashamed.” With the help of my good friend, Don Black, we have created a book to help Christian people stand their ground and be salt and light to our deceived society.
The book will be available tomorrow. I will also be doing weekly Facebook Live teachings on the content through the November elections. If you want to have an impact, “I Am Not Ashamed” will be your guide. This is by far the best work I have ever done. If you read this book and do the work, your life will never be the same.
