Senator Brownback’s new book hits stores tomorrow!
U.S. Senator Sam Brownback, Republican candidate for president, will release his new book “From Power to Purpose: A Remarkable Journey of Faith and Compassion” on July 3.
“If we ever lose our goodness, we will surely lose our greatness,” writes Brownback. “If America is to stay great, the moral character, shared beliefs and common sense of her people will once again have to step up in order for us to achieve our true destiny and purpose.”
Published by Thomas Nelson, the book introduces readers to a humble, Midwestern candidate with a strong faith and unique vision for the country.
As the title suggests, Brownback admits he got into politics in part for the notoriety and influence. It didn’t take long before the seduction of power and pride began.
“Pride can be especially dangerous in a place like the United States Senate, where the walls are marble, and you’re never wrong, at least according to your press releases,” says Brownback.
But he found a new way and purpose that he spells out sincerely for readers. Brownback describes a need for our country and the Republican Party to expand to include more ideas based on compassion, renewing the family and rebuilding the culture.
Describing himself as a “bleeding-heart conservative,” Brownback calls on the country to care as much about the child in Darfur as the child next door, as much about prison reform as tax reform, and the need for national reconciliation and the important role of faith in the public square.
That book sounds like mandatory reading for every decent patriotic American, to me. I have a feeling it’ll be on the high school curriculum 15 years from now. We can all discuss it in a few weeks or so, once we’ve all had the chance to peruse it!
