The Liberty Threat:
The Attack on Religious Liberty in America Today
Americans are losing what are supposed to be constitutionally promised rights at an alarming pace. The Founding Fathers understood the overriding essentially of religious practice unimpeded by governmental authority, but time and vast cultural change has eroded this from the consciences of modern politicians. The struggle for the right to worship freely has been present since the time of the Holy Roman Empire.
By looking at how the Ancient Christian world relates to the failures of our own Supreme Court, Jim Tonkowich examines what has lead to so much government interference in personal religious beliefs in the name of “equality.” As we watch America teeter ever closer towards institutionalized prejudice against religion and religious believers, one question always surfaces: How can we stop this?

Pears, Grapes, and Dates: A Good Life After Mid-Life
And the wind shall say: “Here were decent godless people:
Their only monument the asphalt road
And a thousand lost golf balls.”
Those three lines from T. S. Eliot’s poem “Chorus from ‘The Rock’” sum up my greatest fears about myself and my generation.
Having said that, you don’t need to be in my generation to benefit from this book. We just happen to be the ones living life after mid-life today. Everyone gets a turn sooner than we expect.
In light of this aging thing (I just had another birthday), years ago I made some journal entries that took on a life of their own and became a book about getting older. Pears, Grapes, & Dates: A Good Life After Mid-Life is a dialogue between someone turning fifty and a man in his mid-seventies about the attitudes we need to enjoy the last chapters of our lives.
The book is available now in paperback or for Kindle. Meanwhile, I’ve reanimated my blog and will add posts in the coming days. Let me know what you think. Order it now from Amazon.
