The Decline of Christianity and the Rise of the Pastor/Priests in America is built on the rock solid foundation laid by E. Gibbon's History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It focuses on the historical subversion of Christianity and with that as a sledgehammer it smashes into the middle-class-on-up American evangelical leadership that serves as a lapdog to concentrations of corporate and political power. The Decline of Christianity demands first, above everything else, honesty. That the pastor/priests admit before God, conscience, and congregation that their lives have had nothing at all to do with New Testament Christianity, and because of that America's evangelicals remain either poisoned or famished. Yet inspite of the nauseating conformity of religious leadership, the book remarks upon America's more authentic expressions of servant leadership. It moves with the Biblical tide, that leniency is given for those who earnestly desire it, propelling one into the restlessness of faith (Luther), having remorse/confession/repentence as good shepherds.
