Something For Everybody Nov 11, 2008
Lovers of history, lovers of the Old Testament, lovers of Israel, fearers of God and those curious to know how God speaks to us today need to read this book.
As I read the book I highlighted a number of passages that caught my attention.
1) Lewis is not afraid to step on toes to challenge Christians today. Have we become more lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God he asks? What is left of Egpyt in our lives that we need to get rid of? He recalls Jesus' admonition to his disciples for not being able to "keep watch with me for one hour." This forced me to think about my inability to spend one hour a day with God alone. How hard is that? A good author always gets the reader to think beyond the text. He has suceeded!
2) I love history and Lewis did not let me down. Most fascinating was the chapter titled The history of the church and the Jewish people: A bitter legacy. I never knew the extent to which Christians participated in the persecution of Jews over the centuries. I knew Martin Luther said some nasty things about the chosen people but I didn't know it got so bad he was quoted in Mein Kempf. Or that he dropped dead a week after giving his "most hateful sermon against the Jews."
3) "I will bless those who bless you, and whoever curses you I will curse." Genesis 12:3. Does this verse apply to us today? Lewis answers emphatically yes. He takes the reader through a cautionary tale of world powers who didn't heed this verse. Egypy and Bablyon, the Romans, Spain, Luther, Russia and America today. Most bone chilling is a description of the natural disasters in America that correspond to different decisions we made with respect to Isreal. All in the last 20 years. Read for yourself starting on page 148. What you find will blow your mind. If you are part of the new administration, buy this book and make Barack Obama read this chapter. Twice.
Timely and Thought-Provoking Nov 9, 2008
Are world events leaving you confused and scratching your head? "Sons of Issachar for the 21st Century" is a rare and comprehensive look at Islam, Israel and the culture clash going on in America today. As we move into a new chapter in American history with an historical Presidential election, Bill Lewis' book is increasingly timely. He gives us a fascinating look at America's past and religious roots and combines it with well-thought out insights about our present and future.
This book is well-researched and documented thoroughly; you will find it educational, but not dry. It's easy to follow and understand if you're new to these topics. Chock-full of information, this book will challenge you to reach your own conclusions about world issues and will give you the means to do so. It won't be one of the books you read a few pages of then relegate to the bottom shelf of your already overstuffed bookcase.
If you're already an avid news or political junkie, you will still find this book full of new information. You'll want to read it right through to the end - then if reading it leaves you wanting more, you will find an excellent bibliography to point you in the direction for more reading.
For me, what was vitally important is that this book is not a series of lunatic ravings as so many others are on these topics. Mr. Lewis passion shows -as do his extensive background, knowledge and experience. Still, he is articulate and authentic.
Mr. Lewis is a speaker as well. I've had the privilege of hearing him several times, and if you ever get the opportunity to hear him I would urge you to do so as well. It will be time well spent.
Review for Sons of Issachar for the 21st Century Sep 24, 2006
This book is so relevant to what is going on with the conflict in Israel. It is a call to step up, press into prayer, and to be the church in the United States!
Fresh Vision-New Hope Sep 21, 2006
Bill Lewis has an understanding of current events that reflect a deep knowledge of historical context. When so many commentaries and "sound bite" journalists offer quick fix solutions and misplaced blame, Bill Lewis frames the struggles of the Middle East, and the Unites States' role, in a way that brings clarity, vision and hope. His writing style is focused and engaging. On top of all this, when is the last time you heard a perspective on a pervasive, age-old conflict, yet walked away with a fresh sense of hope? Make sure you have 2-3 hours when you sit down with this book. You will not want to stop until he does.
America, read this book! Jul 25, 2006
After hearing Mr. Lewis on The Ben Ferguson Radio Show, I had to at least check out his book. Sons of Issachar for the 21st Century validates his ability to clearly and poignantly articulate the issues that are threatening America and shaking her foundations today. Anyone who daily tunes in to the news can neither deny nor underestimate the seriousness of this hour in America's history. If you really want to know the truth about America'a past, the desperate reality of her present, and the only hope for her future, read this book! Mr. Lewis somehow infuses his deep passion for America in each chapter without falling prey to the "political correctness" that plagues so much of the media today. In my opinion, Mr.Lewis "understands our times," and his message has inspired me to better understand them as well.
