About Tim Goeglein

Tim Goeglein has promoted Christian values in politics for nearly three decades, from Indiana to the White House. Formerly a top aide to then-President George W. Bush, Goeglein is currently the vice president of external relations at Focus on the Family, a Christian ministry and nonprofit organization, in addition to serving as senior fellow at The King’s College.

Goeglein served as the special assistant to President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2008, following his service in Bush’s first presidential campaign. As deputy director of the White House Office of Public Liaison, Goeglein was responsible for outreach to faith-based groups, veterans’ organizations, conservative think tanks, and more. He also played an integral role in the nominations of two conservative Supreme Court justices: Samuel Alito and John G. Roberts. Moreover, Goeglein advanced Bush’s brand of “compassionate conservatism” by helping to establish the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.

In 2011, Goeglein wrote a memoir of his experiences with the Bush administration, entitled The Man in the Middle: An Inside Account of Faith and Politics in the George W. Bush Era. Goeglein’s book has been featured on NPR’s All Things Considered.

Goeglein studied at Indiana University’s Ernie Pyle School of Journalism, where he was the Richard Gray Fellow in his senior year. During this time, Goeglein produced his own radio show broadcast to 28 states. He also interned for NBC News, and was hired as a producer for the local NBC affiliate after graduation.

Goeglein holds honorary degrees from Faith Evangelical College and Seminary in Tacoma, Wash., and from Concordia University in New York. He is the secretary of the Coalitions for America Board as well as a member of the board of the Young America’s Foundation, which owns and operates the Ronald Reagan Ranch in Santa Barbara, Calif. Previously, Goeglein was on the board of the American Conservative Union Foundation, the organization that hosts the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC).

About American Restoration: How Faith, Family, and Personal Sacrifice Can Heal Our Nation

America seems to be crumbling from within. Having abandoned the Judeo-Christian values that are the foundation of its culture, our nation, in the eyes of many, is going the way of the great civilizations of the past.

If our 250-year experiment in ordered liberty has really run its course, is it time to recognize the inevitable, pack up our families, and head for the hills, hunkering down through the dark days to come?

Or is there hope for an American restoration?

Tim Goeglein and Craig Osten, battle-hardened veterans of the culture wars, know as well as anyone that the decadence is undeniable. But they make the case that an American restoration is not only possible, but probable—if we act now.

The key is for Christians to engage with the culture, not flee from it, to be the salt and light that will renew it from within. That engagement must take place especially at the local level, where real spiritual and cultural transformation occurs. If America returns to its spiritual foundations, the tumultuous times we live in will be nothing more than a bumpy detour in our nation’s history. This book is a roadmap for the way back.

In this clear-eyed but hopeful guide to restoration, Goeglein and Osten explain how patriotic Americans, with God’s help, can renew fifteen critical components of our culture.

Government will not provide the solutions we desperately need. The solutions lie in our churches, our communities, and our homes. The light for our path is faith. As that light pierces the darkness, America will experience a reawakening, regeneration, and renewal.
