Author Bio

Dr. D. James Kennedy served as senior minister of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, for 48 years. He was the author of more than sixty-five books, including: New Every Morning, Why I Believe, Evangelism Explosion, and What If Jesus Had Never Been Born? Dr. Kennedy earned a Ph.D. in comparative religion from New York University.

Jerry Newcombe is senior producer for Coral Ridge Ministries television and has produced or coproduced more than fifty documentaries. The host of two weekly radio shows, he has also been a guest on numerous television and radio talk shows. He is the author or coauthor of more than fifteen books, including What If Jesus Had Never Been Born?

Publisher's Weekly

In his final book, Kennedy, who died in September of this year, joins his Coral Ridge Ministries colleague Newcombe in proffering this biblical justification of their socially conservative position on issues important to their followers, including abortion, the death penalty, war, education and freedom of religion. Kennedy and Newcombe make provocative claims throughout. Regarding abortion, they cite a study that found that 99% of women who have had abortions now wish abortions were illegal. About allocation of government funds, they argue that money currently spent on school lunch programs would be better spent on national defense against “jihadists.” When discussing health care, they accuse England and the Netherlands, both countries with national health services, of killing babies and the elderly. Such remarks are paired with what Kennedy and Newcombe characterize as a humble search of the Scriptures, and each chapter ends with a summary of how the authors feel Jesus would have American Christians vote. While most of this book is standard conservative Christian fare, Kennedy and Newcombe give it a distinctive Calvinist flavor, focusing particularly on Calvin’s belief that “God has distributed this world’s goods as he has seen fit,” and that not all poor people are deserving of Christian charity.
