Kevin Swanson has provided extensive research to uncover why America is the way it is today. The research is thorough and clear and opens the eyes of readers to men who had a goal to destroy Christianity in the West and therefore mock God and the Gospel.
This book is alarming and sobering in nature. It’s quite frightening to clearly see how America became what it is today and what it is further becoming. As you sift through this research you’ll find yourself convicted, challenged, and shocked. Every so often, we need this sort of wake-up call to help us return to our foundation and evaluate where we stand and our contribution to the matter addressed.
Swanson often repeats his platform throughout the book. There is much to be said about the demise of the West, but it seems that it is said over & over again at times. It’s understood though, because passion can begin to boil when you speak of the destruction of the land you call home (temporarily). We are territorial in nature and when our territory begins to fade, we can become aggressive in the take-back and response.
I applaud Swanson’s efforts to call Christians to the reality of what is at stake and what we are facing before us. His research is plentiful and strong. His passion is evident. However, I don’t think that the take-back of the West through Christianity is an X+Y=Z formula. What one must realize is that sin when it is fully-grown gives birth to death. Sin is only going to become more rampant and evident in all cultures, until the return of Christ. Things are only going to get worse before they get better. This is why perseverance is such a theme in the bible, because one must be facing something worth persevering through.
If we all homeschool our children, that is not a guarantee that America becomes the pleasantry of “My Three Sons” or “Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood”.
This book is worth reading & the research is very helpful and educational. I would recommend this book for those who are comfortable and careless about Western Civilization. If anything, this research will help one learn about the past, the present, and the future of the West.
