After many moons of being out of stock in every bookseller (following the unfortunate demise of the publisher), my book Fool: Identifying and Overcoming Character Deficiency Syndrome is once again for sale on Amazon.com. Here’s the book’s description from the back cover:
The question of ethical character (and its deficiency) has become a matter of lively public discussion in recent years and promises to be so for a long time to come-in private life, in politics, in business, in society. While the world tries to figure out how to restore character, it will not find better guidance than we already have in the Bible.
Fool: Identifying and Overcoming Character Deficiency Syndrome is a forensic, worldview-conscious study of the fool and folly as depicted in the Bible, especially in the Book of Proverbs. The message of author Garry D. Nation is that character deficiency (folly) is a vicious, predictable, downward spiral of destructive personal choices. Moral upbringing and ethics training may interrupt and temper it, but God's grace alone can cure it.
Sometimes humorous, sometimes exasperating, sometimes tragic, but always engaging, Fool uncovers surprising insights into what makes us all tick.
