Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay encountered Jesus over 30 years ago and the transformation he underwent inspired him to write a book calling America back to its godly heritage.
In an interview with The Christian Post, the former congressman told CP that writing Revival! Revolution! Rebirth, a work he co-authored with Wallace Henley, senior associate pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, changed his heart.
God is at the core of America's founding political documents, says Pastor Wallace Henley and former politician Tom DeLay in their new book, Revival! Revolution! and Rebirth! which is part personal story, part American history, and part policy prescription grounded in the Judeo-Christian worldview.
Henley, who's the senior associate pastor at Second Baptist Church in Houston, Texas, where he has served for 14 years, is a former domestic policy adviser in the Nixon White House. DeLay, his co-author, served the 22nd district of Texas in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1985-2006, and was majority leader from 2003-2005.
