Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The world is shifting. It is dissatisfied, baffled and craving transformation. Religious tolerance is prized more than truth. From clever slogans to celebrity endorsements, we are bombarded with seemingly peaceful messages of coexistence.

But beneath the bumper stickers and T-shirts is buried this truth: Coexistence is a myth. Instead, a war for world domination is raging--between radical Islam, secularism and Judeo-Christianity.

What does it mean for you as a believer and why should you care?

From years of global outreach, Robert Stearns predicts a coming perilous culture clash. With clarity and astonishing depth, he shows you
• the power of radical Islam to reshape Western culture
• why Judeo-Christianity is losing strength
• what believers can and must do
• and more.

The ultimate dominance of any of these worldviews will create a tipping point in global culture. What role will you play?

"A timely, awakening word for Christians."--Sharon Daugherty, pastor, Victory Christian Center, Tulsa, Oklahoma

"Like a modern-day prophet, Robert Stearns brings vital insight and strategy into how we can meet the challenges of our day. This book is full of key insights that will empower you to put God's Word into action."--Robert Morris, founding senior pastor, Gateway Church; host, The Blessed Life

There is no depth or perspective.
Euthyphro
Stearn's focus is that the houses of militant secularism and radical Islam are threatening the freedoms that we enjoy in the West.
Ruby Red Slippers
After reading this book I don't know how any Christian can remain uncaring of what is happening and uninspired to do something!

Well this book isn't quite my normal review fare but when it came up offered on Bethany House's review program I knew it was I book I wanted to read! For quite a while now I have been interested in learning more about Islam from a historic perspective and Islam from a Christian perspective and this book really filled the bill!

Mr. Stearns begins his book by laying out the cultural landscape of today's world and explaining multiculturalism, coexistence and what the Bible says about understanding the times we live in; additionally exploring current events and Biblical end times prophecy and how each of these things operate as cogs in the ever turning wheel of our world. His approach is methodical and clear in laying out the historical background, current cultural relevance and future likely significance for what he calls the 'three houses'. These three houses 'Radical Islam', 'Militant Secularism', and 'Judeo-Christianity' are each given their own chapters to delve deeper in to the worldviews of each and how they have reached out and affected the world we live in today. The book wraps up with three final chapters where Stearns steps back from looking at each of these houses and takes a look at the ultimate house- God's House. In these wrap up chapters Stearns really explores how Christians today are to be living and that is ultimately with eternity and Christ's kingdom in view!

I really enjoyed Stearns style and the way he put this book together, it reads smoothly and brings the reader along for an enlightening ride that is sure to wake up those still asleep in the tumultuous river of current events and buoy up those who are already awake and riding those rapids.

This book is incredibly relevant and timely for the world we are living in. You dont have to be persay a religious person and this book will make you aware of the truth of what is going on around us today. It is information and facts that you aren't going to hear on Fox or CNN. It confronts us with a decision to make about the differing theologies that are undoubtedly knocking together in our modern world.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Adam Smith on January 19, 2012
Format: Paperback
My honest feeling reading this book was that it contained some good material and some that was overblown. The book also seemed a bit disjointed. Other reviewers have pointed out that this book lacks a cohesive theme. The best chapters in my opinion are 6-8 and 12. I might add chapter one as a general introduction.

He uses the concept of a "house" throughout the book. I think the basic idea is that it is a worldview. Whatever worldview you happen to subscribe to then becomes your "house". Of course to divide up the world into three neat groups I don't think really works. I think in reality there are more than just three houses. Maybe Stearns is just trying to hit the three largest houses? He does say, "I see three major players that have emerged from the stage of world history and are acting out the principal dramas of our present day". When I describe these paradigms, I often find it helpful to refer to them as "houses." Houses are structures; and these structures are houses of thought." (pg. 23)

Stearns' thesis is that the houses of militant secularism and radical Islam are threatening our freedoms that we enjoy in the West. I think there is some truth to that. Certainly 9/11 proved that radical Islam can be a threat. Just look at the response of the West to this threat. Also militant secularism is certainly a threat to the population of Christian nations. The new atheists have probably damaged the faith of some. They have also promoted the decline of western culture by promoting a godless ideology.

I got the feeling reading the book that Stearns is a bit of an alarmist. I think that those who follow the so called prophetic news broadcasts on Christian television probably think as Stearns does.

I found myself squirming in some parts, outraged at others, saddened in some, and a few parts I skimmed.

The book basically boils down to this verse

So, because you are lukewarm--neither hot nor cold--I am about to spit you out of my mouth. Revelation 3:16

It is a call to arms. For Christians to wake up and live as the Bible says. To uphold the scriptures in our actions, not just our words.

It kept me up into the night thinking about certain parts. It was worth the read.

A quick read that made good sense! I believe the author really got to the heart of how the thinking of the adult USA population falls into three "no compromise" camps and why that is!

"No, We Can't: Radical Islam, Militant Secularism, and the Myth of Coexistence," by Robert Stearns, is destined by both the political and religious tone of its title to appeal to a certain kind of reader while it simultaneously repels another. It's highly unlikely that many Muslims or self-declared Secularists are going to read this book, and that's fine, as it is intended for a Christian audience. Within that Christian audience I predict that there will be a wide range of opinion on the merits of Stearn's work, and I'm basing that on my own wide-ranging opinion of it. That's going to make this something of a mixed review. For some readers I'd highly recommend it, but for others- I wouldn't. Stay with me, I'll tell you why.
"No We Can't" began with a basic layman's overview of the three dominant worldviews; Islam, Judeo-Christianity, and Secularism, and Stearns made a compelling case for the importance of understanding how these three worldviews will increasingly form the basis of socio-political interaction-and conflict-in America and throughout the world. But just as I thought the book was off to a good start, I hit Chapter 2. It took me two attempts to make sense of this chapter and how it fit into the overall context of the book. I suppose because I'm not much of an alarmist, I was a little slow on the uptake; the first time through I felt like I was reading an adult version of Chicken Little and his mantra, "the sky is falling".
