I'm one of the choir! I bought this book to get more information regarding Agenda 21 before reading Glenn Beck's new work of fiction on the subject. Even so, I am rather disappointed with the book. It is written with an annoying, ranting cadence (too many sentences ending with exclamation marks!!!) that usually is found in the pages of a blog. Run-on sentences, incomplete sentences, and verb tense inconsistencies abound. I'm not a grammar expert, but the poor grammar makes for a very choppy and distracted read. What is kind of funny is that the author complains about the decline of American education with many of these grammar errors bracketing his point! The book does not offer any references or bibliography, so it's impossible to research further into the author's claims. Finally, this book is mis-titled; it should be titled something like "Agenda 21 and Christianity: A Comparison of Principles". The author goes to great length to argue the superiority of his version of Christianity over A21. He is correct, but this was not what I was expecting to read. I also say "his version of Christianity" because he explains at great length what he calls "The Jesus version of Christianity" which is guided by "Natural Law" and expressed in the 10 Commandments and Jesus' commandment to love one another. He then goes on to interpret the 10 Commandments in a way I have never seen in any Evangelical Christian church. It seems that his path towards salvation is not exactly based on "Grace Alone". In summary, while being a conservative Christian concerned about Agenda 21, I was not impressed by this book. I doubt very much it would succeed in winning over the skeptic.
