From Erick Erickson, "arguably the most powerful conservative in America today" (The Atlantic), an inspiring book about life's enduring values, based on a viral essay he wrote for his children after he and his wife both faced grave medical situations.

"A must read." -- RedState

In late 2016, prompted by the news that his wife was battling cancer and his own pulmonary medical scare, Erick Erickson posted a piece to his website, The Resurgent. Styled as a letter to his young children, the piece, titled "If I Should Die Before You Wake," was a stirring message--and challenge--about how to live a life of purpose and joy. The essay went viral, shared by figures like New York Times columnist and author of The Road to Character, David Brooks. Now, in a time when our country needs healing and a reminder of our values more than ever, Erickson has expanded the project, composing a total of ten letters, featuring a wonderful mix of the practical, inspirational, and spiritual.

Erick Erickson is the popular host of Atlanta's Evening News on 95.5FM and AM750. The former Editor of RedState.com, he launched his website The Resurgent in early 2016. Erickson is also a Fox News contributor. He studied political science and history at Mercer University and earned a law degree at Walter F. George School of Law. Erickson lives with his family in Macon, Georgia.

Reviews

"A must read: Erick Erickson's Before You Wake is a heartfelt reminder of what's important."โ€”RedState "Poignant."โ€”"The Daily Briefing," Fox News "Striking ... Reading [Erickson's] personal story is a small experiment in weakening the filter, in shaking off the spell of simulated life, of letting a person's suffering give you a glimpse of them in full."โ€”Ross Douthat, New York Times Expand reviews
