Joel Rosenberg, author of nine New York Times bestselling books, writes his most comprehensive and personal work in his newest book, Implosion. The question addressed is: "Can America recover from its economic and spiritual challenges in time?" Implosion is a well-written, easily understandable treatise of Rosenberg's end time theology, political expertise, historical study, economical research, and biblical perspective.
What this book isn't: It isn't a rant on the government. It isn't simply his opinion. It isn't a sensational doomsday approach. It isn't narrow-minded. And most importantly, it does not leave the reader without hope.
In an honest, thorough, and credible voice, Rosenberg challenges the Church, individuals, and government officials in ways that have potential to reshape our future and, thus, the future of the entire globe. As much as he shows the planet is headed in a gloomy direction, he also gives reason for doable optimism if we accept the challenge immediately.
Rosenberg states when his points are speculative. However, in supporting those speculations with facts, statistics, and current events, each of the scenarios becomes plausible. The four scenarios Joel believes "could make America unable--or unwilling--to play a key role in the unfolding prophetic events of the last days are:
* Economic Implosion--The United States implodes financially and economically.
* War or Terrorism--The United States is devastated by a surprise military or terrorist attack or series of attacks.
* Natural Disasters--The United States is devastated by an unprecedented series of natural disasters.
* The Rapture--The United States suddenly loses millions, or tens of millions, of people when the Rapture happens, leaving the rest of the American people devastated and triggering any number of cataclysmic events." (p. 127).
The facts--unreported by the mainstream media--will grab the reader's attention.
It is critical that this book is read by as many people as possible while we still have opportunity to make choices for the future.
