Pastor Armour uses the vertigo that he experienced in an amusement attraction as a metaphor for the spiritual vertigo of the modern Church. Vertigo is a feeling of dizziness or lightheadedness. While the author touches on several areas, he zeroes in on the dizzying impact of politics upon the Church and the individual Christian. Both the Church and individual Christians have lost their balance, their perspective, their voice and their purpose.
Armour not only discerns various impacts of this spiritual vertigo upon the Church and its members but also gives astute Biblical advice to help both regain their equilibrium.
This is not only a brilliant prophetic and Biblical perspective; it is also a timely book as modern local churches are struggling with their identity, calling, and purpose. While looking towards a positive future, Pastor Armour considers the past and discerns the present.
