Testimonial About ‘The Antidote’ from a Reader

Below is a testimonial from a reader of BOND founder & president Jesse Lee Peterson’s book, The Antidote. 

Reading The Antidote: Healing America from the Poison of Hate, Blame and Victimhood is like having a conversation with Jesse Peterson. He explains to the reader the social consequences of the breakdown of the black family, and the victimhood mentality fueled by many black leaders today.

The content is written for all readers regardless of color. It creates an avenue of knowledge into the hate, blame, and the victimhood mentality of many blacks. Peterson walks the reader through the background of victims whose lives were lost due to their circumstances and choices. But he also walks the reader through the background of many influential black leaders of today. Peterson describes their destructive childhood, and illustrates how their unresolved childhood anger brings destruction to other blacks through an angry and blaming leadership style.

The book is extraordinary in its simplicity. Peterson presents example after example of broken-hearted experiences turned into anger, self-destruction, and a grievance mentality of blame due to broken families, broken values, and broken children. These broken children became broken adults, who ultimately produce a broken black community and society. The reader is brought to this realization when Peterson states, “The family breakdown is the great social and spiritual scourge of our time.”

The reader is left with a sense of hope when Peterson writes, “At BOND, we work one soul at a time.” As a reader, I think this is the only way we can save one another: one rescued soul reaching out to save another. Only a changed life can change the lives of others. Jesse Peterson, through God, changed his life, and he is changing the lives of others!
