It is my privilege to recommend to you this newly released book by Dr. Alan Branch. Dr. Branch speaks to these ethical questions with conviction, with clarity, and with biblical accuracy. In a day, when right seems wrong and wrong seems right (Isaiah 5:20), we need a voice that’s not influenced by this godless culture in which we live, and this book is that source. I recommend this book to you without hesitation or reservation.

There are some people who, because of their intellect and spirituality, as well as their ability to articulate complex issues in a way that makes sense, easily gain our attention. Dr. J. Alan Branch is one such person. How timely that he would present 50 Ethical Questions: Biblical Wisdom for Confusing Times at this moment in history. Could there be a book more needed than something like this at a time like this? I don’t think so. Dr. Branch has extrapolated from Scripture important truths, even as he has studied the culture in order to understand what comprises the most-needed wisdom during these very confusing times. I most certainly commend 50 Ethical Questions to you. It will be a great resource for you in your quest for truth.
