Williams Smith joins “If America Fails?: The Coming Tyranny” Thursday, January 20, 2022, 8 pm ET, on the TruthWorks Network YouTube channel, helping us analyze the religious references found in The Handmaid’s Tale. She is Founder and Executive Director of Crazy Faith Ministries – and will bring important insights on our viewing experience.
People of “crazy faith” have changed the world, teaches Smith as she challenges us all to follow their lead in Crazy Faith: Ordinary People, Extraordinary Lives.
“‘It hasn’t been extraordinary people who have changed the world; rather, it’s been people who have been willing to act and live on faith,’ observes pastor and author Susan Smith. Drawing on biblical, historical, and contemporary stories of what she calls ‘crazy faith,’ this inspirational volume challenges readers to dare to step out and make a difference in the world. Faith is ‘vision fueled by action,’ Smith declares. Follow in the footsteps of those who have earned a place in the Hall of Faith, including Moses, Harriet Tubman, David, Nelson Mandela, Sarah and Abraham, Mother Teresa, Noah, and Mary McLeod Bethune.” — Publisher
