Implosion - A Review

Implosion: Can America Recover from Its Economic & Spiritual Challenges in Time?  -     
        By: Joel C. Rosenberg
Every wonder why the United States of America is not mentioned in end time prophecy? 

Does it play any role at all?  If so, what?  If not, why?

What could cause America, a vibrant, wealthy, and influential country to become possibly obsolete during end times?

These are questions Joel C. Rosenberg wrestles with in his new nonfiction book, Implosion: Can America Recover from Its Economic & Spiritual Challenges in Time?  First, Rosenberg asesses the current state of America.  Then, he begins to ask the questions.  He dares to ask could it get worse?  If so, how bad and why?  He presents different scenerios, including natural disasters and economic downfalls.  Each one is plausable, and probably something every citizen has pondered at one point or another.  However, the book does not end on a sour, all hope is lost, note.  On the contrary, Rosenberg is very hopeful that America will recover and experience a modern revival.  He even includes a few suggestions as to what individuals and groups can do to help stimulate a revival.

Overall, I appreciated how Rosenberg presents a balanced summary of both sides.  He explains both the pessimistic, domesday opinion and the hopeful, revival side with fairness, and continually brings both sides of the discussion to the Word of God.  Prophecy is cited in context and studied in light of what God says, not what is currently happening.  This is important.  Too often people take what is happening today, and attempt to make Scripture fit into their interpretation and picture.  Rosenberg does not.  He continually points to a soveriegn God who will reveal all when He chooses.  We cannot know everything, but we can certainly be watchful {Matthew 24:42}.
