NEW YORK, June 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Morgan James' new release, Almost Redemption: Inspired Stories Based on Actual Supreme Court Rulings by Vicky Wall, JD, examines Supreme Court rulings through the lens of faith and religion.
The overarching goal of Almost Redemption is to challenge readers to evaluate current laws, reflect on their impact on American culture, and debate whether or not these changes have benefitted individual lives. This informative book surprises its readers by finding humor in weighty subjects, leaving the reader engaged and enlightened.
"In today's cultural and political climate, religious matters are a sensitive, if not taboo, subject," said Wall. "Those with a liberal outlook work to silence religion in the law and push for freedoms and laws that run counter to the Constitution. Lawmakers strive to be politically correct and citizens tip-toe trying not to offend others. However, this liberal ideology of universal acceptance of everything but religion, leaves America far from where the founding fathers intended her to be."
Almost Redemption takes a faith-based look at the changing legal and moral culture in America and the effect these changes have had on Americans in all walks of life. Through engaging and entertaining stories based on real events, Wall reveals the inner life of a generation that has taken religion out of education, has taken sexual freedom to its max, and has ultimately created a spiritual vacuum. Derived from Supreme Court rulings, Almost Redemption provides a captivating read for fiction audiences while remaining legally accurate.
