My purpose in life was revealed to me over the years and has culminated in this book. I had been watching my country fall away from the faith, that our nation was founded upon, for some time. God cries out a warning to us to convert to Christianity people of diverse cultures, in our nation, before it is too late. I love my country and my Christian God. My American flag, faded and a little torn, flies daily, except in bad weather. If I have opened eyes and minds and helped anyone, by this book, my purpose in Christ has been made complete. It is my intention to awaken a world asleep in sin. My prayer is that God will look down and bless our nation again.
