Overview Parsley exposes the failure of the current generation of believers to engage the culture, present a relevant gospel, and lead/influence through service, and paints a vivid picture of the cost and implications of that failure.
Parsley exposes the failure of the current generation of believers to engage the culture, present a relevant gospel, and lead/influence through service - and paints a vivid picture of the cost and implications of that failure. Parsley explains how the culture wars have entered a new, critical phase for the U.S., and discusses the areas in which this war is being fought (Cultural, Scientific, Geopolitical, Media and Academia). He presents an understanding of the paradigms, assumptions, and values that animate the humanist, secularist and neo-pagan enemies of Christianity in America and offers a strategy for winning this "war" - what he calls a New Great Awakening - and how evangelism, social action the engagement of culture fit into that plan.

Liberal or Conservative: there are no other options Aug 24, 2008
Parsley's book indicates that the country is divided into two warring camps and only one will emerge the victor (the camps being Liberal and Conservative). He writes "isn't it ironic that the media and academic elit hold 'tolerance' and 'diversity' above all virtues, and yet appear unwilling to tolerate anyone who dares to claim a belief in absolute right and wrong, the absolute sanctity of human life, the biblical definition of marriage, or a God who holds men accountable for their actions?"
I find it a bit ironic myself but, then again, as a Christian I should expect some persecution regarding my beliefs. Jesus Christ himself stated so: "If they have persecute me, they will persecute you also." Parsley also quotes from David Limbaugh's book "Persecution" regarding this matter: "Anti-Christian discrimination in our society is getting more blatant and more widespread every day." To that, I respond with the biblical quote above. What did you expect, Mr. Limbaugh?
The book reads more as a apologist work for President Bush than anything else. Parsley encourages Christians to vote and to "be heard" which, ironically, is the opposite of what Jesus did (he refused to allow himself to be made a human king). Parsley interprets the command at Genesis 1:28 (wherein Adam and Eve are to "have dominion" over the Earth) as being wholly in line with Jesus' command to "make disciples" at Matthew 28:19,20. The problem with Parsley's reasoning is that he leaves out what Jesus indicated would solve the problems of the world, namely, God's Kingdom. Jesus indicated that his kingdom was "no part of the world" (hence, not political) and that Christians were to be no part of the world (hence, neutral as to politics).
Rod Parsley..........A True Voice Apr 3, 2008
This book is great for exposing this country and its issues. We are truly in a battle with this raging foolishness that is happening everyday in this country. We need to stand up for our moral beliefs in a time where morals mean nothing. Rod Parsley has done a very good job with explaing the problems we have in this nation, and its about time for Pastors to jump on board and do the same thing. Stop being such a chicken hiding behind your pulpit and grow a back bone and stand up for the truth just like Rod Parsley!

psychotic Sep 13, 2007
Having watched rod parsley's career over the last two decades as sort of perverse amusement, I have watched Rod become more and more insane as each year passed - from laying physically on mountains of mail, describing fantasies with the 'firm young Galilean thighs sliding over a steaming white horse' to rants about the evils of the american government and the thinly disguised need for an american theocracy, his creation of the non-accredited and wonderfully bizarre bible college, his wearing battle fatigues in his church for about 3 years. If this guy wasn't such a trip, I would be very scared of him. I hear McCain picked him for a spiritual advisor - Please Lord say it ain't so!! This guy is really, really out there.

It is a good book with a timely message. We need to become the culture.
