Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2012-10-01)

Best-selling author Rosenberg reluctantly presents the possible collapse of America as we know it. According to the author, mainstream journalists and politicos on the right and left are warning of America's decline brought about by fiscal implosion, terrorism, and natural disasters. Through his evangelical Christian viewpoint, Rosenberg examines the Bible for an indication of what the end of days for the United States and the Rapture will look like. Audie Award winner Mel Foster's narration is stilted, stiff, and robotic.

Verdict: Rosenberg's views are often unbalanced as he criticizes nonbelievers. A strong familiarity with and understanding of the Christian Bible would be a prerequisite, making this an optional purchase.

Book description

Best selling author and international political expert Joel C. Rosenberg tackles the question: Is America an empire in decline or a nation poised for a historic Renaissance?

America teeters on a precipice. In the midst of financial turmoil, political uncertainty, declining morality, the constant threat of natural disasters, and myriad other daunting challenges, many wonder what the future holds for this once-great nation. Will history’s greatest democracy stage a miraculous comeback, returning to the forefront of the world’s economic and spiritual stage? Can America’s religious past be repeated today with a third Great Awakening? Or will the rise of China, Russia, and other nations, coupled with the US’s internal struggles, send her into a decline from which there can be no return?

Implosion helps readers understand the economic, social, and spiritual challenges facing the United States in the 21st century, through the lens of biblical prophecy.
