Paul Thigpen's new book, The Burden, just left me saying, "Wow!" This book is a call to action to repent and come back to our Lord. Our time is short, but God's mercy is forever. It is not by accident that I see Paul's words tying in with the words of our new Holy Father. You can't wait another day to purchase this prophetic book! Buy one for yourself and one for everyone you know. I truly believe this book was given to Paul by God. Wow!!!

This is a disturbing but very powerful work of synthesis and prophesy. I won't say I enjoyed it, because its message is raw and unnerving. But I will say it is timely, desperately needed in our world at this moment, and, oddly, reassuring.

There are times in the life of a child when he may be caught in some significant wrongdoing by an adult and held accountable for his actions. As unpleasant as that may be, he may later look back at that moment as crucial for his subsequent maturing into responsible adulthood.

Paul Thigpen's latest book offers us a similar encounter. His words are harsh, but not unwarranted. And, at a time that is seeing traditional morals and values swept away by demagoguery and populist jingoism, this call to repentance may provide us all with needed reminders of what is at stake if we refuse to acknowledge our errors and repent of our misdeeds.

This book consists of scriptures that are gathered together under specific subjects. I liked that I could read all related references at one time instead of separately while you are reading the bible. It was eye opening because no one can claim ignorance once the full subject is read. You know exactly what you are supposed to be.

I'm still reading this book it is very well written profound and often scary in terms of this priests explaining through Scripture things that have already happened or are happening now or will happen in the future if we as a global community don't repent and change our evil ways

This book is very important reading for everyone, but especially for those who are seriously concerned about the moral health and well-being of our country and the world. Our nation is rapidly moving away from God's way but this book makes us take a look at what are the consequences for denying natural law.

A great selection of religious poetry. The fact that modernists are coming to attack Christians is a fact that cannot be denied. Paul Thigpen has done a wonderful job elevating the stakes of the battle for our immortal souls with this collection of poetry and musings. All who want to focus on the expressiveness of language and who would like to fortify their souls should purchase this book.

I first read this when it was published two years ago and it blew me away. I loaned it to someone and never saw it again. I recently purchased it again and it is just as powerful the second time around. I cannot help but feel that this is prophetic Dr. Thigpen sees what we should all be seeing. When we watch what is going on in the world and the massive turning away from God and all that is good, we have to know that our time is limited. I would recommend buying a few copies at once, so you can keep one and give the others as gifts. Give especially to those who are in the most need of redemption.

An eschatological tour de force. A work of pure poetry that speaks to the truly repentant heart. One can only hope and pray that it acts as a societal megaphone to wake up and shake up a deaf world. The historical clock to mark the dusk of civilization and its collapse into a black hole of eternal darkness is ticking and about to strike 12 o'clock midnight. Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us....
