What this book isn't: It isn't a rant on the government. It isn't simply his opinion. It isn't a sensational doomsday approach. It isn't narrow-minded. And most importantly, it does not leave the reader without hope.
In an honest, thorough, and credible voice, Rosenberg challenges the Church, individuals, and government officials in ways that have potential to reshape our future and, thus, the future of the entire globe. As much as he shows the planet is headed in a gloomy direction, he also gives reason for doable optimism if we accept the challenge immediately.
Rosenberg states when his points are speculative. However, in supporting those speculations with facts, statistics, and current events, each of the scenarios becomes plausible. The four scenarios Joel believes "could make America unable--or unwilling--to play a key role in the unfolding prophetic events of the last days are:
* Economic Implosion--The United States implodes financially and economically.
* War or Terrorism--The United States is devastated by a surprise military or terrorist attack or series of attacks.
* Natural Disasters--The United States is devastated by an unprecedented series of natural disasters.Read more ›
With that being said, IMPLOSION still provides an essential argument for our tumultuous times. Not only does Rosenberg give us an excellent (if frightening) survey of our problems, made up mostly of quotes from public figures predicting how precarious our system is and how there is no real way of turning it around. He gives us what most books on this subject do not include--the spiritual perspective.
Rosenberg's key addition is what he calls the third lens, or viewing our times of trouble through Scripture. In the section titled `Sign of the Times,' Rosenberg looks at a list of all the signs that are to predict the coming of the end times including betrayal, lawlessness, a spiritual awakening in Israel, and an increase in mockery of Biblical prophecy. He then goes on to show that this list is almost all but complete.
Without quite making the prediction, Rosenberg then goes on to show exactly what it would mean for us if we were approaching the end times, giving us astute examinations of four likely paths: financial implosion, war and terrorism, natural disaster, and rapture.
Rosenberg gives us more questions than answers, but the exercise is not fruitless. Rosenberg shows us exactly what it would take for people to withstand the disasters that would befall if indeed we are approaching them.Read more ›
I recommend the book.
While it started out like still one more interpretation of what everybody already knows, there's lots of substance to it. He didn't convince me that a Christian has to be a Republican, but as far as the Bible is concerned, he knows his stuff. Excellent book.
To potential readers, I say, don't let political leanings keep you from reading this very excellent book. I believe there is good information here that almost anyone can learn from, as much as the politics annoy me.
