I find Rosenberg an excellent writer. "Implosion" isn't fiction. As a matter of fact it's so "non-fiction" it's kinda like a kick in the stomach. He lays things out just as they are ~~ and as I've said before from a "world-view" its pretty depressing. (In real-life)!!! The last half of the book is encouraging as he describes the "first and second great awakening" that took place in the U.S. I don't suspect most of the younger generation has any idea what transpired at that time. As with his other non-fiction books Joel educates; about why things look so bleak, and what God has done in our Country before, and can do again. I've passed my book on to friends and recommended it to my Sunday School class. I wish more people who seem to be "oblivious" to what is going on around us would read it.
BTW, Joel states that if there is to be a third "Great Awakening" it has to begin with each one of us!
