This book exposes the american culture well through the eyes of Ron Luce. It's a bit of a scare tactic and one comes to the conclusion that the only way to change this is to fight our politicians and the system. Battle cry was weak and in the end it really says very little.

While he did have good facts and ideas, although I didn't agree with all of them, my greatest problem with this book is his style. Facts preceeded aggressive assertions of the way to tackle the problem, not as an earnest man with a dream but as one begging and pleading with his readers to do exactly as he said and nothing else, like a captain during a mutiny. He rarely took into account alternative ways to address the situation. Also, his over-emphasis of the idea of saving the morality of today ...more

Recommends it for: Every Christian Pastor, Youth Leader & Parent ! ! !
Ron clearly lays down the issue - we are daily involved in a Battle w/ the Evil of this World. If we do nothing - an entire Generation (the Millennials) will be LOST to the World & Never Know Jesus Christ ! ! !

This has been his Focus w/ "Aquire the Fire" Rallies for the past few Years & teaching Pastors, Youth Leaders & Parents that they need to Actively Raise this Generation in the Ways of Christ !

This book should be read by anyone working with a youth group! Whether a youth pastor, sponsor, whatever....PARENTS should read this to see the truth about what the youth face and why...what we can do to help. This book has stats that will blow your mind! I learned a lot about television programming through this book, I am now very upfront when we have sitters or my kids are at other houses about what they can and can't watch. Excellent Book!!!

A must have and a must read for anyone who understands that tomorrow our young ones will be grown, and they will need CHARACTER, they will be required to be men and women of substance to lead lives worthy of account.To quote the author,Ron Luce
'This is not a time for "Business as usual" in our outreach to teens.If we do not act now,in twenty years we will all look back and say "If only we had known.If only we had done something" '

While it's a little over the top in parts, this is a very passionate, inspiring book for those wanting to minister to the youth culture of today. It's a wake up call to make a difference. Those that gave it a bad review simply don't understand its intended purpose.

Luce needs to see through the political posturing of the "Christian Right," but other than that, his message is timely, accurate, prophetic, and cogent.

This book does a good job of reminding us of the bleak condition of our generation. However, if all of us do our part and trust in the Lord, we can turn it around and win a generation to Christ!

Very good aggressive stance in taking proper moral steps. Take one to read

This was a huge motivating factor behind my call to ministry! This book will show you the need for every soldier to be in the front lines--no more on-the-bench Christians!

A great perspective from the christian world view of what our teens face today in our post christian culture. Also gives practicle tools on how to be a good influence & teach them to be influencers.
