Perkins stated:

“I am grateful for the vision and courage of Pat Robertson. My first formal introduction into the world of government and political action was in the wake of his run for president and the creation of the Christian Coalition. It was a shaping experience to serve as chairman of the coalition in Baton Rouge many years ago. Pat’s vision and legacy as a man of God and a man of action will live on and continue to inspire.”

Salem Books honors the life of author and communication pioneer Pat Robertson upon his entry into his heavenly home.

A faithful Christ-follower, Robertson used multiple media channels—from the Christian Broadcasting Network to Regent University, to the many books he authored—to proclaim and share the gospel to millions. We are honored to have been one of his many publishing partners, having worked with him on The Power of the Holy Spirit in You. While we mourn the earthly loss of our friend, we know his legacy will live on for generations. His influence will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, colleagues, and close friends during this time.
