Foley is the author of a new book titled “It’s Time” which lays out the issues the United States is facing and the need for individuals to take a very personal stand based on 2 Chronicles 7:14 – to humble self, pray, seek God, and turn from personal sin. Foley discusses how taking that stand can transform a life, a family, a community and, given time, will transform a nation.

“It’s Time” will be available in February through Sign up online at to receive information about how to purchase the book.
Foley writes that “It’s Time” is a book about influence, and how that influence may be used to transform America. He said it is a challenge to persons who call themselves Christians and who are citizens of the United States of America.

“It’s time,” Foley writes, “to commit. It’s time to lead. It’s time to transform America.”
