News Release from Leading The Way with Dr. Michael Youssef – For Immediate Release
HEMEL HEMPSTEAD, UK (ANS – September 22, 2015) — Leading The Way Founder and President Dr. Michael Youssef believes God, Help Me Overcome My Circumstances is his most important book yet, providing vital tools to prepare the church for one of the most troubling times in history.
As the Western world faces unprecedented moral decline, economic upheaval, and global tensions, in his newest book Dr. Youssef discusses the unmistakable parallels between the book of Judges and our own post-Christian age—a time when everyone seems to be doing what is right in his own eyes; a time when God, out of His great love, is calling a wayward nation back to Him.
Dr. Youssef explains: “Of all the books I have written, this book may be the most urgent, practical, and important. The book of Judges deals with the spiritual crisis we face today in our families and churches—a crisis of spiritual amnesia.
“Just as generations of Israelites in that era repeatedly fell away from God’s commandments, our generation is falling away from its biblical foundation. As a culture, we have ceased to look for answers from the Word of God. Our schools and universities—many of which were founded as institutions of Christian instruction—no longer take the Bible seriously.”
Some of the key principles in the book include:
* Judges and Today: Spiritual Parallels
* Moral Decline in the West
* Principles for Discerning God’s Will
* God’s Discipline and the Consequences of Sin
* God’s Grace
Dr. Youssef also equips the reader with practical steps for bequeathing a heritage of faith to the next generation.
“Don’t repeat the pattern of Israel in the days of the judges,” Dr. Youssef exhorts the reader in the pages of his new book. “Don’t let your children, your grandchildren, or the children you teach and influence become another generation who did not know the Lord. Be faithful to God and transmit your faith to the next generation.”
Dr. Youssef concluded: “I hope this book will help you to see how the difficult circumstances of our lives can lead us to a place of greater dependence on God. And as you see God’s relentless love and mercy toward Israel, I pray your love for Him will be rekindled.”
God, Help Me Overcome My Circumstances is available now at LTW.org.
