Meeke Addison Debuts New Book, ‘Hard Truths:’ Reminder That Jesus is Bread of Life
TUPELO, Miss.—Can our hearts delight in hard truths?
What if we meditated on the sobering truths of God’s Word instead of the pervasive feel-good musings that delight our flesh? What if, in so doing, we returned to following the God who created us rather than the god we’ve created?
Meeke Addison, host of Urban Family Talk radio, a division of the American Family Association (AFA, www.afa.net), is a blogger, public speaker, pro-family activist—and now author. She asks and answers these complex questions in her new book, “Hard Truths.”
Our dramatically secular culture promotes popular preachers and soft approaches to moral absolutes. As a result, many professing Christians run dramatically toward the Jesus who fills us with bread in the form of money, cars or our best life now. But at the very moment Jesus presents Himself as the Bread, we turn away, refusing to be satisfied with anything less than what our flesh can feel. “Hard Truths” explores these issues that are very real to many Christians.
Addison is a radio personality with more than 14 years of ministry experience. She and her husband, Wil, host “Airing the Addisons” weekdays from 6 to 9 a.m. CT., when they focus on empowering and strengthening the family.
“We are thrilled for Meeke Addison and her new book, ‘Hard Truths,’ said AFA President Tim Wildmon. “Meeke’s voice as an African-American woman who is sharing biblical truth over the airwaves and in her writing has made such an impact on the Christian community.
“We’ve watched for decades as the culture has shifted away from moral absolutes,” he continued. “Many Christians in their attempt to push back against pervasive relativism have grown weary. But we must not grow weary. Now is the time for the Church to double-down on what we believe, and now more than ever, we must stand on the hard truths found in the Word of God. Meeke understands the call of this hour and responds daily on the front lines of the culture war. The fight is far from over. As you read ‘Hard Truths,’ you will be challenged, encouraged, and recharged for battle.”
Addison, who keeps a close eye on politics, pop culture and the Church, also serves as an AFA spokesperson and cultural critic. She blogs regularly for AFA’s The Stand and Urban Family Talk. A New Orleans native, Addison lives in Mississippi with Wil and their four children.
