John Cooper Talks to ChurchLeaders About New Book, ‘Wimpy, Weak, and Woke,’ CCM, and the Silence of the Church

What Others Are Saying About Cooper’s New Book

Regarding Cooper’s new book, actor and Christian author Kirk Cameron said a “critical and timely message rings once again like a voice crying in the wilderness. ‘Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand! (Matt. 3:2).’” Cameron said that “Kingdom of Truth and Grace arrived like a hurricane 2,000 years ago in the person of Jesus Christ, and its continued capacity to revive and reshape the world today hinges on bold and faithful messengers like Cooper.”

“Like another ‘Son of Thunder,’ John seems made for this kind of work,” Cameron added, “smashing idols and building altars. This book will show you how to do both.”

“As the frontman for the Christian rock band Skillet, John Cooper likes things loud,” said theologian Dr. Michael Brown. “But he is not just a loud voice. He is a thoughtful voice, a reflective voice, an uncompromising voice, a prophetic voice. If you listen carefully, you might just hear God speaking truth and wisdom through him.”

Eric Metaxas, a popular Christian radio host and New York Times bestselling author, described Cooper as a “heroic truth-teller and voice of inspiration and hope at a time of peak madness in our world.” Metaxas said that he thanks God “for those wise enough to hear what he has to say—and who will actually do something about it in their own lives!”

“John Cooper is where woke goes to die! This book will help you defeat woke so liberty and the gospel can flourish,” apologist Frank Turek said.

Focus on the Family’s Adam R. Holz said that “Cooper confronts the soul-wrecking narratives of progressive culture.”

“He unleashes a clarion call to go from being weak and woke to awake—alive to the God whose truth alone can set us free and lead us into abundant spiritual life,” Holz said. “It’s a brash invitation to anchor our lives to biblical truth, no matter how hard the winds of cultural compromise might blow.”

“John Cooper is the ultimate unapologetic apologist,” said Hillary Morgan Ferrer, president and founder of Mama Bear Apologetics. She added:

Cooper is willing to risk his following and livelihood to say out loud what many Christians will only whisper in their homes, assuming they are informed enough to see what is going on. Love him or hate him, agree or disagree, the one thing you can’t do is ignore the importance of the issues he is raising.
