Kirk Cameron responds to book rejection


In a recent interview with Fox News Digital, Cameron explained that his book is about teaching "biblical wisdom and the value of producing the fruit of the spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, gentleness, faithfulness, self-control."

He also responded to the rejections from public libraries and bookstores, saying that people are destroying themselves while fighting for the hearts and minds of their kids. He said:

“Publicly funded libraries are green-lighting ‘gender marker and name change clinics’ while denying a story time that would involve the reading of a book that teaches biblical wisdom. How much clearer can it get?”

He further continued:

"We have to start fighting back, or we will lose our kids and this country."

The publisher of Cameron's latest book is Brave Books. According to its website, Brave is committed to promoting "pro-God, pro-America values."
