Speak the Truth is a journey through culture with a wise guide. Carmen Fowler LaBerge brings clarity to the current chaos, by bringing all issues back to the one issue: God. I am thankful for her voice in the culture, and pray this book received the wide reading it deserves.
—John Stonestreet, President, the Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview
While I had the privilege of serving in the U.S. House of Representatives for 34 years, I am under no illusion that the political process or political systems can solve all the problems our country faces. In Speak the Truth, Carmen LaBerge is calling people of faith to reject fear of engagement and live as God's ambassadors in a world desperately in need of hope and truth.
—Congressman Frank R. Wolf (Ret. 1981-2014)
Speak the Truth is a wake-up call for Christians who have become complacent and fallen asleep in the pew. There is a world in desperate need of the Gospel and Carmen has written a book to both motivate and equip every Christian to bring the Truth into their own spheres of influence.
—Donna VanLiere, New York Times bestselling author & speaker
Carmen LaBerge is a smart leader with years of experience in the trenches of church and culture skirmishes. In this book, Carmen challenges believers to view every person as an image bearer of God and to live each day in light of the redeeming love of Christ. We would all do well to heed that challenge.
—Russell Moore, President ERLC
About The Book
When was the last time God was an active participant in one of your conversations? How does God get into a conversation if His people are sidelined or silent? As ambassadors of the Kingdom of God, it is the Christian’s responsibility to speak the mind of Christ in the context of every cultural conversation, no matter how contentious. If Christians are silent then God is effectively sidelined.
The Christian viewpoint is desperately needed in the cultural conversations of our day but Christians have been effectively muted because they are not equipped to engage and combat the aggressive arrogance of those who actively seek to silence all viewpoints but their own. In Speak the Truth, Carmen LaBerge aims to get Christians off the sidelines and back in the conversation.
