Book Review ~ The Fight of Our Lives

The Fight of Our Lives
by William J. Bennett & Seth Leibsohn
Thomas Nelson Publisher

I have read several books by William Bennett, and this book, The Fight of Our Lives, Knowing the Enemy, Speaking the Truth, and Choosing to Win the War Against Radical Islam, was thought provoking and a change from the books I usually read. With so much currently going on in our nation, the presidential election and constant media coverage of the campaigns, as well as the headlines that grab our attention, the war on terror seems to be droned out at times, and our country has turned our focus from fighting this cultural war to other issues, issues that are no less important, yet we still must focus on what is indeed of great national concern.

Bennett and Leibsohn take a look at radical Islam with a focus on the "nature of the threat we face and the nature of the response we do not currently possess. It is a focus more on us than our enemy." (quoted from the Introduction)
Our country seems to be more interested in religious tolerance, even though this is very important, and political correctness, than seeing the truth of what is plainly there to see: radical Islam is bent on destroying us.

I recommend this book even if it doesn't sound like something you would want to read; it isn't a feel-good book, but it does remind us that we have much to be concerned about for our nation's survival.
For me, it is also a reminder that even as I am aware of the issues going on for our nation, God is sovereign, and I put must my faith and trust in Him.

I received this book free from the publisher through the book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255 .
