Dr. John Stiles to Speak Locally About New Book

GALAX, VA. Sonfire Media is pleased to announce the release of the book, "All the Damn Christians: A Glimpse into the Mirror of Hypocrisy," by John W. Stiles, PhD.

Dr. Stiles is a native of Sylva, NC, but spends much of his time traveling the globe as an international speaker, and as U.S. Director for Hannam University in South Korea. He is a graduate of Montreat College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and the University of Southern Mississippi.

In his book, Stiles presents a research-based look at non-Christian’s perceptions of the Church. His title, "All the Damn Christians," comes directly from a study respondent who wrote, I would have a much higher regard for the religion itself if it weren’t for all the damn Christians.”

Stiles reminds us that Christians have been called hypocrites for centuries, and even now, many nonbelievers react defensively at the slightest reference to Christianity. In his book, the author shares candid insights as to why the world rejects the faith and illustrates how Christians can turn hypocrisy into opportunity.

Mac Powell, Lead Vocalist for the Multi-Grammy Award-Winning Band, Third Day, endorsed the book, saying, “Dr. Stiles brings us back to the amazing grace that we have received in our lives, and encourages us to look through the eyes of Jesus as we approach and converse with the world. I can't think of a more relevant message for the church today.”

Dr. Stiles is enthusiastic about speaking on this topic locally.
