This is no time to run and hide.
America seems to be crumbling from within. Having abandoned the Judeo-Christian values that are the foundation of its culture, our nation, in the eyes of many, is going the way of the great civilizations of the past, stumbling down the path of decadence and decline.
If our 250-year experiment in ordered liberty has really run its course, is it time to recognize the inevitable, pack up our families, and head for the hills, hunkering down with the other people of faith through the dark days to come?
Or is there hope of an American restoration?
Tim Goeglein and Craig Osten, battle-hardened veterans of the culture wars, know as well as anyone that the decadence is undeniable. But in this compelling book they make the case that an American restoration is not only possible but probable--if we act now.
The key is for Christians to engage with the culture, not flee from it, to be salt and light that will renew it from within. That engagement must take place not only at the national level but also, and especially, at the local level, where real spiritual and cultural transformation occurs. If America returns to its spiritual foundations, the tumultuous times we live in will be nothing more than a bumpy pivot in our nation's history. This book is a roadmap for the way back.
In this clear-eyed but hopeful guide to restoration, Goeglein and Osten get down to specifics, identifying fifteen critical aspects of our national culture in need of renewal and practical suggestions for what each patriotic American can do to help. Among these task are:
- Restoring religious liberty
- Restoring a culture of life
- Restoring marriage and the family
- Restoring the concept of the gentleman
- Restoring civility
- Restoring the Constitution
- Restoring patriotism and sacrifice
Government will not provide the solutions we desperately need. The solutions are already there--in our churches, our communities, and our homes. The light for our path is faith. As that light pierces the darkness, America will experience a reawakening, regeneration, and renewal.
