I have read a few of Ralph Reed's Christian fiction books, and have been extremely impressed, not just at his ability to write a great political fiction novel, but at his insight into politics. This book sounded interesting enough, but when I saw he was the author, I figured it would be worth reading, and I was right.

There are many Christians who feel religion and politics don't mix, and some who feel we should stay out of politics and stop fighting abortion and gay marriage. Many feel we should just pray and not do anything about the mess our country is in.

Reed shows in his book that politics and religion DO mix, and although we need a great spiritual awakening in this country, we still need to do our duty and get involved also.

The author covers the awakenings in the past in America, and what led up to, and what followed them, and shows that we are ripe for another awakening. There are a lot of insights into some of the presidents the author as worked with, and met, even Barak Obama. There is some interesting history given, and hope.

I know our country is a mess. Socially, economically, spiritually, and morally. But after reading what our country was like before other awakenings, I feel encouraged that God could still move on our country again and bring about true hope and change.

This isn't a book that just bashes our current administration, thought the author does address what is wrong with it. It is a book that doesn't just give some vague ideas of what we need to do to change. The author gives some definite and great ways we can turn our country around.

I enjoyed the book. It was an interesting read. The author really knows his stuff about politics, and if his ideas were followed, we'd be a lot better shape. I definitely recommend this one.

The other reviews made this book sound like it would clearly show how/why America will prevail. Having finished the book, I remain unconvinced. While Reed's thesis is compelling (Christian faith leads to abundance, abundance to pride, pride to destruction, destruction to humility, humility to repentance, and repentance back to faith once again), the book does not give sufficient evidence that this is true. The chapters are well-written, interesting, and informative, but they do not convince me (other than in general) that America can/will recover from it's slow-motion suicide. (What was quite edifying was Reed's appraisal of Christ's parable about the wheat and the weeds; He allows both to grow together, until the final day when they will be separated. In other words, Christ permits evil to not just coexist, but actually to grow, alongside of the good).

A meaningful message of truth, historic as well as insightful. The deaf will not hear; the blind will not see, and use the all-knowing hypocrites are their excuses. But the willing will listen and understand the honor, and serve to be soldiers to God and Country. A Liberal would hate it, and that's enough for me to know how proud I am that I loved it.

Format: Hardcover
Awakening, by Ralph Reed, how America can turn from economic and moral destruction back to greatness is an incredible read. The first question that is asked, is "Are we watching our nation commit suicide?" "Is America, like a crumbling modern-day Roman Empire, doomed to inevitable decline and demise?" Hard questions straight off the bat in the first chapter. Mr. Ralph Reed takes you through what is going on in America today.

At the end of chapter, there are action points, some might be scripture, or reading the Bill of Rights, or writing the editor of your local paper. The action points go along with the chapter that you just read.

I really like this book. I am glad the author brought the language of the book down to the everyday American. Not everyone has been to college. Not everyone knows political terms. So, it was really nice to be able to read a book like Awakening and be able to understand it. I really like the action points. It makes me, the reader want to do more, know more about what is going on. Why we should be believing a certain way, or why we should be thinking a different way. The author uses the action points to get us to understand the needs of America. What America has gone through and where we are headed.

I recieved this book in exchange for a fair review. All opinions are mine.

Where is America heading? What is to be the fate of this great nation; the grand democratic experiment? Any concerned American wishes he had the answers to these questions. It is these questions that Ralph Reed addresses in his latest volume Awakening: How America Can Turn From Economic and Moral Destruction Back to Greatness. Just what is in the future for the US of A?

Reed is the former executive director of the Christian Coalition. He is currently the founder and chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition. It is from this background of faith and cultural involvement that Reed has written Awakening.

The bottom line (please excuse the cliché) of this book is that we are in a cultural and spiritual war fighting for the moral code upon which our country was founded. It is a moral code that has been abandoned by our leaders and our citizens.

Reed analyzes all areas of our culture – politics, marriage to include same-sex marriage, racism, poverty and religious freedom – carefully detailing each subject and then reasoning for confidence in the people of our country.

Reed’s contention is that revival (awakening) in America is cyclical. Just when it seems that America is heading down the road to ruin, God provides a spiritual awakening. He begins with a historical account of “The Spiritual Cycle” in America expressing that there is reason to believe a new awakening is coming despite the current moral decay in the United States. He continues with a chronological walk through American history with an eye to our spiritual heritage.

He continues in Chapter Five, “The Reagan Revival,” with a condensed yet pointed biography of President Ronald Reagan that helps us to understand who he was and why he became the man that he was.
