Dr. Tim Clinton: The Weakening of American Families is Source of Societal Decay, Cultural Decline

Clinton’s Newest Book, ‘Focus on the Future’ Set for Release on October 5

LYNCHBURG, VA.— Renowned author Dr. Tim Clinton and his upcoming book, Focus on the Future: Your Family, Your Faith, and Your Voice Matter Now More Than Ever,” will equip readers to protect their families, their communities, and their convictions against a culture that increasingly challenges the righteousness of biblical values and Christian faith. The book is scheduled for release on October 5, 2021.

In the book, Clinton is unafraid to speak the truth about the state of the American family and the decline of Christianity in modern culture. Clinton argues, “Christianity has been under assault. In truth, our beliefs, our faith culture, and even our hopes for our country have been targeted by a vast majority of those in Hollywood, the news media, the education system, and the government.”

The result of such an attack on the Christian core of America is clear. Clinton maps a clear progression of loneliness, addiction, violence and abuse in recent years as a direct correlation to the loss of emphasis on Christ and the family unit with a mother and a father.

“There is a real anti-family agenda stridently opposed to the traditional family,” Clinton states. “The institution that has been a bulwark of so much human progress and achievement, a haven of all that is essential to healthy and thriving human beings. God has ordained the family to be an anchor where hearts and hands are fashioned to grow, love, and be loved. Without vital, loving families, people are without belonging, without support of any kind, and without the loving connections that make for healthy souls who can sustain the blows of this life.

“Suffice it to say that the deterioration of the American family is the source of nearly every symptom of cultural decline, from criminal activity to plunging academic performances, from damaged mental health to poor physical health, from rising poverty to shredded social networks.”

As the president of the American Association of Christian Counselors (AACC), Clinton is familiar with these issues, as well as how to address them. In his new book, he reveals:

  • How to promote and restore the marriage contract and the family unit
  • How to resist the forces determined to destroy biblical masculinity
  • How to lead and protect millennials and Gen Z-ers from today’s rampant temptations
