Summary
"Many Americans, regardless of political affiliation, are anxious about the future of the "land that we love." In America's Expiration Date, trusted political commentator Cal Thomas offers a diagnosis of what's wrong with the United States and prophetically reminds us that change will come when Americans look to God instead of Washington"--, Provided by publisherThere is a deep-seated feeling that we need to improve our country. Our culture is increasingly immoral, the family structure is threatened from all sides, and government programs consistently overreach, creating massive debt. Is it possible that America could crumble and our democracy fail? Thomas draws parallels to once-great empires and nations that declined into oblivion, and predicts that America's expiration date is just around the corner. Through biblical insights he reminds us that real change comes when America looks to God instead of Washington. If we're willing to seek God first, learn from history, and make changes at the individual and community level, we can not only survive, but thrive, again. -- adapted from jacket
