Implosion helps readers understand the economic, social, and spiritual challenges facing the United States in the 21st century, through the lens of biblical prophecy.
Rosenberg (Inside the Revolution) says heand his readersmust 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 authors 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.
