From the inimitable Fr. George Rutler comes this timely set of reflections on the ominous times in which we’re living.
From riots to pandemics, speech codes to behavior mandates, modern man is living in a time of eerie, fast-moving social change that is increasingly resembling some of the darkest periods of history. As we careen toward a breaking point, there persists a profound lack of perception abroad as to what is unfolding right before our eyes. Surrounded by widespread ignorance of history and loss of supernatural faith, we march forward in blindness, unable to perceive or imagine what is in store for us on the other side.
Father Rutler dives deep into the relevant histories to put our modern times into a balanced perspective and provide us with moral applications that enable us to see, understand, and navigate our current circumstances. This book is a must-read for anyone interested in rousing our fellow Americans from their slumber and persuading them back to faith, hope, charity—and courage.
