Overview

Publisher Marketing

Anything that presents itself as a force to hurt the souls of men is fair game for the pastor according to the author. An introduction by Dr. Douglas Kelly to the issues of Statism, and Milton's own concern for the pastoral-prophetic voice on matters of public morality and "bringing every thought captive" to the Gospel, make this a particularly relevant book in this season of thinking through politics and faith. The volume is complete with a bibliography on the matter of Christian voices in the public square and an index. It is profitable reading for the classroom, in the office or study, on the back porch, or on a plane.

Endorsements

"God bless Dr. Mike Milton for challenging the conventional wisdom that Christians need to mind their own business and stay out of the public square. He correctly diagnoses the root of our society's problems as spiritual and calls on the church to step up to the plate in an effort to save our culture. There is no inconsistency between spreading the Gospel and being engaged in the culture and in politics in a Christlike way." David Limbaugh, NYT bestselling author, syndicated columnist, constitutional attorney, contributor, FoxNews

Silent No More "is a must read if we are to save our nation. The Church must take the lead in this effort." Michael Reagan, national Radio Talk Show Host, Author, columnist, son of U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

"Dr. Michael Milton’s book is, among other things, a tribute to the martyrs of atheistic communism, of which there were countless millions. Christians in America today face their own unique challenges. The threats to religious freedom are not as deadly as what Christians endured under communism, but they are serious, and they seem to get worse year by year—and they often stem from the same statist impulse. We must, above all, not remain silent. It is indeed true that all it takes for evil to prevail is for good men to do nothing." Paul Kengor, Ph.D., Professor of Political Science, Grove City College; Executive Director, The Center for Vision & Values; Fellow, The Hoover Institute, NY Times best-selling author, and nationally syndicated columnist, contributor to FoxNews, and frequent speaker and recognized leading scholar on the history of the Cold War and Presidential studies of Ronald Reagan.

"In a culture where biblical standards are routinely being ignored or marginalized God's voice needs to be heard loud and clear, however unwelcome it may be. Old Testament prophets provide a powerful paradigm of this, and while biblical prophets have no like-for-like successors today, Christian pastors have a similar responsibility to 'reprove, rebuke and exhort', directly challenging what seems to be the relentless drive towards framing a totally secular society. Michael Milton's book is an urgent, relevant and powerful wake-up call. Every pastor should read it--and encourage his church members to do so." John Blanchard, Internationally known Christian preacher, teacher, apologist, and author

    There is no doubt that the main problems in our society are spiritual and its time the society at large realizes it all and more importantly, so should Christians. A bold and smart piece of writing, Dr Michael Milton has done a marvelous job in contesting decisions made by our leaders which are not at all pleasing in the sight of God. If any reader seek to know and understand the truth of what the difference is between the word of God and what the society is currently doing, this is the book to read.

    The world and the church in general has long needed a book like this, with this level of honesty and evident love for God and the way he wants us to live as God-fearing people. I have to commend the author for boldly coming forward and producing such an interesting and captivating piece of writing any morally stable human being will enjoy. Michael's work in this book will soon turn many heads, both in normal society and also from the church, the church needs to hear the calling and become more aware of their role. A lovely read

    The book provides a well thought out argument on why the church

    The book provides a well thought out argument on why the church and its members need to speak out and take responsibility to voice their opinions in controversial subjects. It speaks of moral responsibility to help improve society and provide discourse to help change this world. The author, pastor Dr. Milton, has written a moving book stating that leaders in the church should be able to speak politically and try to speak out against the degradation of the culture we live in today. But at the same time, they must do so intelligently and try to be impartial by not aligning themselves to a particular political party. They must also make sure to use the bible as a foundation for their beliefs. I found this book very intriguing and was able to learn a lot from it. The author is very able to voice his message and make you think critically. I specifically like the analogy of your life being a garden that is constantly being invaded by weeds. The weeds portray the bad influences in your life and the practice of being religious is a way to keep yourself away from these negative influences. This tells you that the individual must constantly strive to improve themselves and keep away from corruption. I recommend this book.
