It's Time by Dr. Mark Foley, President of the University of Mobile
Individual Christians must take personal responsibility for their spiritual condition in order for America, and ultimately, the world, to change, according to Mark Foley, president of the University of Mobile.
“It’s time to commit, to lead, to transform America,” writes Foley in his new book titled “It’s Time.” The book, with a forward by Michael Catt, is available through Amazon.com.
“The greatest threat to America sits in church pews every Sunday morning across the land,” writes Foley, a former executive vice president of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary where he earned a master of divinity and doctor of philosophy in psychology and counseling.
“The weak link in the transformation of a nation is the individual Christian’s fulfillment of responsibility, not God’s response. God is faithful,” Foley writes.
The book makes the case for the need for change in America and includes a practical guide to fulfilling the four responsibilities and living a transformed life fully committed to God. The key to that life is using one’s influence as a committed Christian to take a stand and stop the nation’s slide away from the things of God, Foley said.
It is a call to action the Baptist university has issued through its new Center for Leadership and the Twelve23 Movement aimed at revitalizing Christian faith and character in America by the year 2020. The Center for Leadership is working to bring national attention to the goal of helping leaders in a variety of professions fulfill their responsibility to God as American citizens.
Michael Catt, pastor of Sherwood Baptist Church in Albany, Ga., and executive producer of Sherwood Pictures which created the movies “Fireproof” and “Courageous,” said the message “resonates in my heart as a clarion call to action.
“We live in a time when we need men and women who are placed in strategic places of influence,” writes Catt in the book’s forward. “Research and statistics tell us our nation is sliding into an abyss.” Foley “has given us solid, Biblically-based solutions,” Catt wrote.
Foley said a university is the prime place to start a movement to turn the tide in America.
“I realized that my time of influence and that of my generation is drawing to a close, as we retire and move from positions of leadership,” Foley said. He said men and women in college today or beginning their careers in the workplace are the ones who will ultimately guide the future of the nation.
Foley said it is time for Christian leaders of all ages in all professional fields to take a stand.

We Forgot! The 7 Unlearned Lessons of 9/11
by Dr. Joe Savage, director of the University of Mobile Center for Leadership and Twelve23 Movement
A new book titled, "We Forgot! The 7 Unlearned Lessons of 9/11" by Dr. Joe Savage, director of the University of Mobile Center for Leadership and Amy Wright, Assistant Director, was released Fall 2011.
"We Forgot," published by University of Mobile Press, is available for purchase here or by calling the University Center for Leadership at 251.442.2555.
According to Savage, the current national crisis is due in part to the American people's failure to remember the foundational truths conveyed by our nation's founders. In ‘We Forgot," Savage and Wright present 7 lessons that every American must remember in order for our nation to thrive. The lessons in the book are drawn from the events surrounding the 1789 inauguration of George Washington and the national response following September 11, 2001.
"On September 11, we were reminded how quickly we dismiss the very things that are the most important, things like the importance of a solid family, of a free economy, of a dedicated President and Congress, of a meaningful church, of skilled leadership, and the one that seems to be forgotten most often: the importance of dependence upon God," Savage writes in the introduction to "We Forgot."
In "We Forgot," follow the path of George Washington on inauguration day and rediscover the truths that define the character of the American people.

“Joe Savage has written an excellent piece that compels us to stop – and remember. We need to look back at some ancient paths, we need to be stirred again to remember who we are and Whose we are, especially in light of the 9/11 tragedy. Read Joe’s incredible insights – from government, to the workplace, to the church, and more – and never forget.”
- Michael Catt, Senior Pastor, Sherwood Baptist Church
There is a song that we often sing at First Baptist Church Woodstock that simply says, "we will remember." Joe Savage has written a new book, We Forgot. He takes principles from God's Word, from self-discipline, and from spiritual leadership to talk about the lessons of 9/11 and imprints our minds and hearts lest we forget. It will be a great read and one that you will desire to pass on. - Johnny Hunt, Pastor, First Baptist Church Woodstock

"Every major aspect of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit is covered thoroughly and yet with a simplicity that will enable lay people to understand and apply the material . . . This is a balanced treatment of the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. It made me want to walk more closely to Jesus in His Spirit's power!"
- Dr. Steve Gaines, Senior Pastor, Bellevue Baptist Church
"Content is excellent. Terrific work. Should be extremely helpful."
- Dr. Roy Fish, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Seldom - if ever - has there been a more comprehensive guide in learning the importance of the Spirit in our walk with the Father and the Son. I wish this book could be placed in every Christian School, Sunday School, Bible Study Group, and Home throughout this great country. What a difference and benefit we would see throughout humanity."
- Lee, Retired Accountant, Fremont OH
“Most of the study on the Spirit-filled life I have taught or preached in my 37 years as a pastor. However, having this type of information put into a single Bible study book is just fantastic. I thank God for inspiring Dr. Joe Savage to take time to pen this wonderful work. More Of God More Of Me is a must for every Christian who desire a closer walk with Christ.”
-- Reverend Wayne Honeycutt, Chelsea, AL
"I led a men’s Bible study group through the More Of God, More Of Me Bible study. Our 40 day journey lasted for six months and continues to be a major reference point in our weekly Bible study. For some of our men, this was the first time they had ever studied the doctrine of the Holy Spirit. For other men who have walked with Jesus for years, they say this is the best study they have ever experienced regarding the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the believer’s life. No doubt, Dr. Joe Savage hit a homerun by addressing one of the greatest needs in the local church today, the Spirit-filled life of the believer. Too many believers hear about the Spirit-filled life, yet fall short of living in the power of the Spirit-filled life. Dr. Savage guides believers through Scripture in a logical, clear, and convicting way. More Of God, More Of Me is a tremendous tool for equipping believers for the Spirit-filled life. My life and ministry continue to be impacted through the Biblical truths in this study."
-- Tim Cox, Senior Pastor, Liberty Baptist Church, Chelsea, AL
"I just wanted to drop you a line and tell how thankful I am that you wrote More of God, More of Me. This is the best book I hae ever read on the topic of the Holy Spirit. It has changed my life."
--Jeannette Hadde, North Ridgeville, OH
