"President John Adams once wrote, 'Facts are stubborn things.' Facts establish truth, and this book is full of both historical and practical truth. In The Spiritual Price of Political Silence, you will not only be inspired and encouraged with hope for our nation but also presented with a practical plan for how to achieve positive change. "

"The Spiritual Price of Political Silence eloquently captures the universal sentiments echoing across nations:America has long been a beacon of light, its foundation rooted in Judeo-Christian beliefs that have illuminated our path. However, ominous tremors now shake our once solid footing, as political and cultural conflicts erode the voices and values that once radiated America's brilliance. Christy's remarkable book serves as a clarion call, urging us to realize the cost of remaining silent amidst political turmoil. Time is of the essence, for both America and the world. Let us not succumb to darkness."
