"Yes," says David Jeremiah, and in his book, I NEVER THOUGHT I'D SEE THE DAY! he details numerous signs of this cultural decay including:

I am currently reading this book and it really shows you how far this country and the world has come and how we have changed gradually for the worse without even realizing it. The things that this country was founded on and what most people believed is now being attacked. Some of what has happened is due to christians being complacent and letting things happen without standing up for what is right. This country was founded upon the principles laid out in the bible and now the bible is treated to ...more

The title says it all. There are so many things that I never thought would be happening here. A good, thought-provoking book about our culture today and the direction we're heading, from a biblical perspective. There were several chapters that really struck a chord with me; giving me new insight and understanding - into educating our children and into the battle in the Middle East. The book covers a lot of ground.

I think other conservatives will agree with me that times have really changed, and not necessarily for the better. This one is an eye-opener

I am 56 years old and I have heard a number of different people young and old say “I never thought I’d see the day,” for a number of different reasons – but all relating to some major change or changes that have occurred in our society, in our culture, and the way we live as well as treat one another.

In his compelling book, Dr. David Jeremiah, senior Pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California and New York Times bestselling author, hits the proverbial “nail on the head” wh

This October 2011 release from radio and TV pastor Dr. David Jeremiah is a wake-up call for America.
It's a natural companion and follow-up to Jeremiah's earlier release, "What in the World is Going On?"
I had the privilege of interviewing the author following that title's publication.

In his latest trumpet call, Jeremiah goes behind the headlines to put the spotlight on angry atheists, indifferent Christians, a profaned Jesus, obsolete marriage, a morality in free fall, a marginalized Bible, an ir

The title of this book captured my thoughts as I wondered what this pastor had to say about what is happening today. As a young pastor I wanted to read the thoughts of a pastor who has faithfully ministered for several decade to thousands of people.

This is not a book filled with ranting about the good old days from a person who longs to live in the past. Dr. Jeremiah walks us through Western civilization changes and how it is impacting marriages, families, and children today. He demonstrates wit

This is a very well written book. Because of the vast amount of detail and information in this book, I do not recommend that people purchase the audiobook version, until you have read this book. There is so much information you will get easily bored and lost listening to an audio book. In this book Dr. Jeremiah addresses nine issues, which he believes, have significant implications on the church and the culture. The chapters in this book are as follows.

1. When Atheists would be Angry
2. When Chri

I read this book after my sister and mom. I think this book is mostly for younger people who don't understand how today's popular culture differs from the tenets of Christianity or for older people who don't understand the cultural drift away from the Christian nation they remember. As for my part, I never remember living in a culture supportive of Christianity. To me, choosing to be a Christian has always been counter-cultural, as well as a clear choice in opening oneself up to criticism. I sti ...more

I got this book for Christmas.

David Jeremiah is excellent. He has a well-researched (I'm one of those OCD-types who actually reads footnotes!), observer of popular culture and how its present state relates to Biblical principles in about 8 or 9 different arenas. However, this is not yet another "going to Hell in a handbasket" tomes. He does inject hope in this work and wraps it up by showing how this affects us personally.

Biblical insight into nine areas where our world, our nation, our churches, and ourselves (ouch) are not where we should be according to the truth contained in God's Word.

But, don't worry, all can change if ... [no spoilers here]

Read the entire book, checking the Bible references as you go, and then take action based on the last chapter!!

Excellent insight into how we got here, and what each of us can do about it.

There is a lot of information in this book and it took me longer than I anticipated to read and process Dr. Jeremiah's teachings in this fascinating read.

It truly is inspiring and uplifting and brings home a message taht we must be wary and vigilant in these turbulent times.

I learned a lot, especially about the Middle East, and will surely recommend this book.

Dr. Jeremiah reveals the extent of moral and ethical decline in America and, indeed, in the world today. He talks about the shift from moral, Biblical values to today's "anything goes" ethos.

A book every Christian should read. Dr Jeremiah does an excellent job of describing the cultural decline in nine areas of our lives. More important are the points made about we, as Christians, should respond to these changes.

Nothing against David Jeremiah (he's actually the only TV preacher that seems to be solid in his theology, at least from what I've gleaned), but I've grown tired of the trumpets of doom. I don't deny that the Western is at a crisis point, but I'm starting to lean toward the idea that American civic religion is dead and that is a very good thing (now if only MTD would die). This is not to say that Jeremiah is using this book as a gloom and doom platform, but rather this book was started in my bri ...more

Another good one from Jeremiah!
Excellent book on changes & what they mean.
I won this book from a Goodreads give away. I really tried to read it but just could not connect with it. I did pass the book along to my dad - who could and did connect with it. I think he could better identify with what David Jeremiah was trying to say. He was pleased with the book where I could not get through it. Maybe you need to be of the same generation as the author to identify with it.

I really liked the way this was book was written. It could easily have been a tale of gloom and doom but Dr. Jeremiah kept the focus where it belongs - on Jesus. This helped to see what the problems are and to see how they should be addressed in a biblical way.
