, (PressExposure) January 08, 2008 -- Writing from a place of passion and commitment, CNN Contributor and nationally award-winning journalist, Roland Martin, inspires readers to believe that a personal relationship with God is, not only necessary, but mandatory to make it through life’s daily circumstances in his new book. Roland, the host of “The Roland Martin Show” on WVON-AM in Chicago, columnist and daily blog writer for and commentator for TV- One Cable Network, is poised to launch his 2nd book entitled, “Listening to the Sprit Within: 50 Perspectives on Faith.”

Dubbed the man with “a fresh perspective for the 21st century, “ Roland has a sort of wit, knowledge and confidence that has made him attractive to hosts of all persuasions in the rapidly growing sphere of political talk. To that talk, he has added a broad spectrum of conversational topics, such as: urban culture and religion. In his latest literary installment, Roland has written a compilation of faith-based essays that are bold, honest and uncompromising in addressing contemporary issues from a Spiritual perspective. All the while, readers get an intimate peek into Roland’s zeal and faith for the Word of God. Roland is honest, forthright and focused as he speaks candidly about what God has placed in his spirit - about the relevance of faith in everyday life, and how living a life for the Lord can have a positive effect on all aspects of our lives.

According to Rev, James T. Meeks, senior pastor, Salem Baptist Church of Chicago; Illinois state senator, “Listening to the Spirit Within speaks to a generation today that has more wealth and knowledge than any other time in history, but often struggle with recognizing God’s many blessings. An insightful guide, Roland Martin offers 50 perspectives on faith in one book that is a must-read!”

In “Listening to the Sprit Within: 50 Perspectives on Faith”, Roland reiterates God’s desire to speak to us daily concerning our lives using varied methods; the Bible, children, church and even daily trials. More importantly, Roland elaborates on how mandatory it is that we possess a strong faith as well as an intimate and personal relationship with God in order to hear when God speaks to us.

With titles like, “Don’t just thank God, represent Him”, “A Spiritual lesson from Sex in the City”, “Ordinary people, extraordinary God”, “A Spiritual graduation” and “Marriage: a gift from God”, Martin invites readers on a life altering journey by showing readers how to embrace a spiritual perspective on everyday thoughts, trials, situations, decisions and circumstances.
