    The story of young Tom Brown's seemingly hideous years spent at rugby school and his spirited and astonishingly stalwart response to the institutionalised bullying prevalent at the 'Great' British public schools became exactly the campaigning tool its author hoped it would. The regimes at these schools had been largely unchallenged, with the assumption being that the education and training received were the best.

    William Halsey was the most famous naval officer of World War II. His fearlessness in carrier raids against Japan, his steely resolve at Guadalcanal, and his impulsive blunder at the Battle of Leyte Gulf made him the "Patton of the Pacific" and solidified his reputation as a decisive, aggressive fighter prone to impetuous errors of judgment in the heat of battle.

    Is America still the greatest country on earth? How does God see it? In America's Coming Judgment, Thomas J. Hughes examines the United States in the light of scripture. What he finds is ominous. In the Bible, God made promises to nations as well as to people. He rewards godly behavior. But when a nation intentionally turns away from him, when it harms the vulnerable, and when it mocks his standards of right and wrong, he promises another kind of response - judgment. Has America gone too far? Is there still hope? In this riveting volume, Thomas J. Hughes explains the purposes of God's judgment, and how it applies to the United States.
