Awakening by Ralph Reed
I throughly enjoyed reading this book. It starts with the history of great changes in the American society and how those changes began.
From the break from British rule, the battle over slavery, Prohibition, Roe v. Wade, and more, Reed details how men and women came to action for a cause.
His challenge in this book is that Americans must stand up for their beliefs and Christian heritage not only as a people but as a nation.
I really enjoyed reading about struggles and hardships that the founding fathers faced as they gave their all to build this wonderful country. I also was captured by how great men took action in the face of opposition for what was right. Our country needs men, RIGHT NOW, that will fight for the rights they adore. Men like Abraham Lincoln, George Washington, and Ronald Reagan, knew the power they had as president and led with conviction and passion.
Sadly, many choices are made for popularity and tyrannical reasons. Reed realizes this and is sounding the alarm to urge Americans to turn back to what has made us a great nation: liberty, personal responsibility, and faith. An awakening can occur if America's people will but rise to the call and defend this great land. Ralph Reed is sounding the call. Will you answer it?
