    A review from a reader

    Wallis draws on his experience in urban ghettos to show why traditional liberal and conservative options that emphasize either social justice or personal values fall short. He looks outside the traditional corridors of power to find solutions. Foreword by Garry Wills; Preface by Cornel West. He is an exeptional writer and really makes you believe that he is right.

    An Admirable View

    Wallis¿ view is very admirable, and while his critique includes the Religious Right, he is very understanding and forgiving, as we all should be. That is, after all, the Christian way. However, while we can and should forgive the Religious Right for their hypocrisy and imposition, they will not escape judgment from the son of man, as Jesus promised. Jesus said that while hypocrites prophesy and claim to do many wonderful works in the name of the Lord, they ¿work iniquity,¿ and the day will come when they are told to depart from the church (unless they repent). That day has come. As Jesus promised, the messenger for the Spirit of Truth now guides us unto all truth and shows us things to come. (John 16:13-14) He is not Jesus, but our ¿brother who has the testimony of Jesus.¿ (Revelation 19:10) He delivers a unique and original explanation of prophecy and serves up truly righteous judgment in the message, titled Real Prophecy Unveiled: Why the Christ Will Not Come Again, And Why the Religious Right Is Wrong. Interestingly, he writes anonymously because he says the world does not need another martyr to scorn and crucify, or a hero to exalt and put on a pedestal. He says no man should be tempted with such great worldly power or bear such responsibility as a public figure. He says the world needs the truth, and nothing but the truth, and he repeats what Isaiah wrote, that ¿besides God there is no savior.¿ Therefore, while Wallis¿ book contains great advice and is definitely worth reading, we should not be surprised that the fulfillment of real prophecy will mean that the proud and militant will be brought low in order to enable the humble and meek to inherit the earth. That's what it's all about.
