Overview

This book presents, as its central focus, a snapshot of the political wanderings and spiritual meanderings of Grenada, an Independent State in the Eastern Caribbean, for the past forty years (1974-2014). Written from a biblical perspective, it seeks to highlight some of the spiritual realities at play and their impact on the nation, its institutions, leadership and citizens. It issues a clarion call for serious stocktaking, urgent strategic thinking and clear value-driven governing to deal with the cosmic battle over Grenada's soul as it drifts further and further away from its godly moorings. It unapologetically and urgently calls for national repentance as a prerequisite to social and spiritual transformation in keeping with God's redemptive plan for individuals and nations.
