H. Edward Rowe, Th.M., D.D.
In many respects this is the most important book that has appeared on the market in the past three decades. John W. Chalfant, a brilliant researcher and writer, has captured in these pages the essence of America's contemporary problem - and has pointed the way out of the dark for our declining civilization.With characteristic boldness, the author has inserted the diagnostic scalpel at every major point at which a potentially fatal malady lurks under the skin of our nation: Theology, Philosophy, Politics, Economics, Foreign Policy, Islamic Terrorism, Defense, Education and the multiple Moral sicknesses that are eroding the soul of our nation. To read this trenchant and compelling volume is to become enlightened as never before concerning the pathway to doom that is remarkably similar to what Edward Gibbon exposed in his epic "Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire." To ignore it is to remain vulnerable to the deadly cancers that threaten America, and to contribute in abysmal ignorance to its decline and potential downfall. Get this book. Read and diget its contents. Buy it for others. See that it finds a place in your local public and school libraries. Give it to your elected officials. Not only will it show you the darkness; it will show you and every reader the way out of the darkness and into the light. America-A Call to Greatness richly deserves a prominent place in the foundation of the new America that must be the happier home of this and all future generations.
