Kirk Cameron Announces New Book: ‘I Want to Teach Children the Importance of Being Humble and Kind’
By Movieguide® Contributor
Kirk Cameron plans to release his newest book, “Pride Comes Before the Fall.” Cameron and his team have been traveling the country discussing the topics of faith, family, and country.
Cameron told Fox News Digital, “I’m so excited about this book because it’s so fun and full of action and adventure – and the kids are loving it. I read it at the Billy Graham library [in North Carolina] for the first time.”
For his next stop on his nationwide tour Cameron, and his team plan to travel to the Seattle Public Library. Where he plans to read the new book.
When chatting on the book’s storyline Cameron stated, “There’s danger, adventure, waterfalls.”
He continued, “With a nation that is so saturated with the idea that pride is a good thing, the Bible warns us that pride is the deadliest of the seven deadly sins. Before greed, gluttony, sloth, wrath, envy and lust – is pride.”
“It’s the mother vice that gives birth to all the other dangerous things on the list,” he added. “I want to teach children the importance of being humble and kind.”
Cameron went on to say, “In the Bible, God devotes an entire book to warning against the dangers of pride and encouraging humility. It’s the Book of Proverbs – and every proverb there is about ‘down with pride, up with humility,’ because God opposes the proud and gives grace to the humble.”
He concluded, “The great learning in the Scripture is this: Pride comes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.”
Movieguide® recently reported on Cameron’s book tour:
In his continued country wide tour, Kirk Cameron visits Scottsdale, Arizona alongside Mark Lamb, who also just announced his run for senate.
“I can’t wait to visit family and friends in Arizona for our next Brave Books story hour,” Cameron stated.
Cameron also invited Governor Katie Hobbs to the event.
“You’re invited to the library as guest of honor,” he said as he spoke directly to Hobbs — “and I’m reserving you a front-row seat.”
“Spoiler alert: The kids will want you to sit Indian-style with them in the front row so you can join them in singing ‘God Bless America’ and maybe even lead us in a prayer. Please come,” Cameron added.
The plan for the group is to say the Pledge of Allegiance, then “sing the national anthem and pray outside the library.”
Sheriff Lamb stated, “Protecting the innocence of children is vital to the preservation of the values this country was founded upon. This woke virus that seems to be spreading across our nation is coming after our kids.”
A spokesperson for Brave Books, a publishing company, stated, “We need government officials to participate in the fruitful upbringing of the next generation. The American people look up to our representatives, and we must elect individuals that will stand up for values like love, joy, peace, patience, kindness and more.”
CEO of Brave Books Trent Talbot also expressed, “We have a fight on our hands for the soul of the country. We all need to ask ourselves what we can do to preserve the Christian values this country was founded upon.”
“That means making books that parents and grandparents can trust and taking back our libraries,” he added.
