Summary

Is it possible our world has gone mad? We are under siege and the war is not from without; it is from within. The collapse of the Roman Empire occurred in a single generation and was not so much the result of invasions by their enemies but the result of moral decay and internal corruption. Similar patterns are emerging in America. We neglected or abandoned our traditional institutions long ago, but now it’s time to take them back.

Today, forces are at work to strip the principles and precepts of faith from public venues or minimize their significance. Many progressive leaders are convinced that when Christianity disintegrates, it will create peace on earth. But the loss of our heritage will merely create a spiritual vacuum that will be filled with folly, crammed with chaos, or invaded by Islam. The reality is Western civilization will become so decadent and reckless that America will collapse like a house of cards.

In Hope for This Present Crisis, Dr. Youssef provides a diagnosis of the insanity of the current culture and a seven-step prescription for restoring sanity to a world gone mad. Here’s the seven-step path to restoring a world gone mad:

  • Remember the Truth - Stand firm on the truth of the gospel
  • Restore the Soul - Seek God’s approval - not the approval of other people
  • Revitalize the Family - Guard your children from the horrors of the internet
  • Reestablish the Classroom - Support conscientious, caring public school teachers
  • Respect our Freedoms - Know your rights
  • Reform our Society - Morally and spiritually purify yourself
  • Revive the Church - Demonstrate the forgiving love of Jesus at all times

Excellent Book

Hope is needed in this current day. The beginning of book puts everything that is going on in our world into perspective. It's a bit depressing. But in the end, the author offers hope. He even discusses 7 ways we can help bring about hope and change on this world. I like hearing a call to action. Brilliant!

For Such a Time as This

Well-timed honest assessment of our current culture. Christians must wake up to this present reality and lean into the Truth. This author will show you how to do that with much passion, wisdom, scripture, and real-life experience. I love reading books about American culture and Christianity written by those who grew up in oppressive counties—he truly understands the weight of this present hour, and what we are called to do.

Great Material and well researched

The research and powerful delivery of Michael Youssef comes through in this book. It is current and even covers the divisive issues of COVID-19 with fair analysis. The reader does a good job, but often sounds too monotoned. Yet, the content of the book keeps you spellbound and wanting to listen and re-listen to absorb the wisdom of this book.

A must read for the Christian who is wondering why our world is spinning out of control with no end in site.

Very enlightening as to why the media is misrepresenting the events in America. Very easy to read and understand. Listened to it twice so far. Gives hope to the hopeless situation we find ourselves in.

Correction needed

Mischaracterize George Floyd’s reason for death... video shows officer with knee next his neck/shoulder, not on his neck.
