Twilight's Last Gleaming by Robert Jeffress - REVIEWED

About the Book: (from Worthy Publishing)

Pastor and Fox News, CNN and MSNBC media personality Robert Jeffress shows us how America’s last days can be our best days. We have an unprecedented opportunity to have a positive, eternal effect on the lives of those around us.

Never in recent history have Christians been more discouraged and fearful about our country’s future. Economic chaos, immorality, terrorism and global turmoil have convinced many that we are living in the twilight days of America. Dr. Robert Jeffress agrees. But this is not the end of the story, he writes in Twilight’s Last Gleaming. Although we cannot prevent America’s eventual demise, we can delay it . . . and make a difference for eternity at the same time.

For everyone who wonders what can be done right now—within our culture, our churches, in the voting booth and our neighborhoods—Jeffress answers with biblical insight and real-world clarity, showing Christians how to seize this unprecedented opportunity and point people to our only Hope. Includes a foreword by Mike Huckabee.

My Thoughts:
This book is practical, honest and places today's political/economic/social design in biblical context. Jeffries' offers insight that is somehow encouraging and comforting rather than feeding the panic that seems to want to thrive in these uncertain days. He offers practical ideas and thoughts on many topics, but one in particular - how Christians should evaluate and decide whom to support in this most critical of election years.

Truly, there is nothing new under the sun, and today's critical problems have been faced by Christians before. However, Christ's second coming has never been nearer, and we are called to be salt and light in a rapidly declining culture. I fully believe God has brought this book to publication for just such a time as this, and every Christian who is registered to vote - who cares about the future of our nation and our freedom to worship - should read this book!! I'm not being dramatic, just honest. It is thought provoking and convicting. I praise God that this book in in print in 2012!!
