Centralized globalization over our individual lives grows at an ever-increasing rate. International treaties now bypass congressional scrutiny, enforcing global solutions to problems that some feel are none of the globe’s business. With the world’s drive for global equality, solving Beijing’s pollution requires Texas barbeques to also be limited in their carbon footprint. Eventually, only global laws will satisfy the view that equal justice requires equal restrictions throughout the world.
John the Apostle saw what lies ahead. He was given a tour of his future—and ours—which he recorded in the Bible’s last book, Revelation. On the surface, however, Revelation is not that revealing. It’s written in code, even more cryptic than the parables of Jesus. Neither release their wisdom to the casual student. Government vs. God attempts to grasp what Revelation reveals about humanity’s pending attempt to replace God with its government as that provider to which we bow.

What I expected and what I read were not the same, but I don’t always read the subtitles when choosing a book for review. GOVERNMENT VS GOD, Twenty-First Century Insights into Revelation, A First Century Riddle by Fenton Ward is actually a study of the book of Revelation. Chapter by Chapter GOVERNMENT VS GOD shares insight as to how what is going on in the world today has been written about in Scripture. Though it is easy to read it may not be easy to digest, those who are comfortable with the book of Revelation and have some knowledge as to what is going on in the world will have no difficulty getting through the almost 300 page text. This book is a study- manual and not really something you would get for casual reading. Though I recomend it for reading, for me it took a while to get through it. But, whenever I read non-fiction I like to evaluate the truthfullness of what is being written, this takes time. Not only does the author reference other books in the Bible, which is expected, he also references non-biblical ideologies / philosophies such as Marxism. This book is more important today than ever before since many individuals are embracing a marred presentation of what it means to be a follower of Christ. GOVERENMENT VS GOD presents a systematic study of the world today by applying the book of Revelation to the modern Believer. — written by Marsha L F Randolph I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook Bloggers book review bloggers program.
