Author Richard Capriola Interviewed on Twin Cities Christian Talk about 'A Nation Under Judgment'
KATY, Texas, June 27, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Author Richard Capriola was recently interviewed by Paul Ridgeway on Twin Cities Christian Talk AM 980 (Minneapolis) about his new book "A Nation Under Judgment." He has also been interviewed on American Family Radio.
What does it mean to be one nation under God? Capriola asks. "Do the words have value only in times of national crises?" Capriola said he hopes his book will be a thought provoking journey that empowers Christians to decide for themselves if our nation is moving away from God's point of view and headed for judgment.
"A Nation Under Judgment" examines our nation's social policies from a Scriptural point of view. Social policies such a hunger, poverty, the environment, marriage and abortion are examined from both a public policy and Scriptural point of view. The book also examines the role of campaign contribution versus God's point of view in shaping our national agenda.
Capriola defines wisdom as "the ability to see things from God's point of view" and believes our nation has lost its wisdom when shaping national polices.
Early Christian reviews of "A Nation Under Judgment" have been impressive. For example, Heather Randall, CEO of Christian Women Affiliate said the book is "Well researched and Scripturally based." She added, "A Nation Under Judgment seeks to be a catalyst for inspiring believers toward deeper biblical thought regarding social policy."
Dolores Liesner, a reviewer for Christian Women Affiliate, wrote "Every legislator, and every believer, apologetic, preacher and evangelist needs this resource on their shelves."
Secular reviews have also been impressive. For example Richard Blake, writing for Reader Views said "A Nation Under Judgment is a clarion call to the dangers of national pride, indifference, exploitation, current trends, and of the danger of a nation moving away from God's point of view."
"A Nation Under Judgment" is published by Mill City Press and is available on Amazon.
Richard Capriola spent many years serving as a hospital chaplain. He completed four years of Clinical Pastoral Education in preparation for becoming a chaplain. He has also led a church based outreach ministry and has served as a mental health counselor at both a regional crisis center and a psychiatric hospital
