Rosenberg (Inside the Revolution) says he—and his readers—must put everything on the line to save America from economic, social, and spiritual implosion. He points to earlier epochs in American history when people thought the nation would fail and argues that the First and Second Great Awakenings of evangelical fervor turned the nation around. For the first time in print, Rosenberg tells a very personal story not just of his conversion to Christianity but also of his conversion from liberal Democrat to conservative Republican. Further, he tells how he has “detoxed” from politics and believes the most important task of all is making disciples of Christ, saying that the church, not politics, is the “last best hope” for our nation and world. Logical fallacies, generalizations, and “evidence” that is only collected opinion weaken an otherwise passionate, clear, honest portrayal of the author’s prophetic call for prayer, fasting, and political action for God to bring about a “Third Awakening” that would turn the United States around and prevent catastrophe.
