Overview

America is at a crisis point, and its future depends on you.

In This Precarious Moment, Dr. Jim Garlow and evangelical political activist David Barton offer practical solutions to the six problems that plague our nation: racial strife, a massive immigration disaster, failure to understand Israel’s role in the world, how to reach millennials for Christ, a misunderstanding of the government’s role in religion and culture, and a church that has capitulated to culture.

Thankfully, there are steps we can take. Join Garlow and Barton as they equip Christians with the knowledge they need to take on today’s challenges during this precarious moment in American history.
