Book Review: A Nation Under Judgment by Richard Capriola

A Nation Under Judgment is a thought-provoking look into what it means to be "one nation under God."

Our country's Pledge of Allegiance contains the words "one nation under God," but have we strayed away from this vision? And if so, what might the consequences be? A Nation Under Judgment by Richard Capriola views the social issues America faces through a Biblical lens. Policies dealing with hunger, homelessness, marriage, protecting the environment, child abuse, and more are examined to see if these policies are aligned with God's view.

Filled with statistics, quotes, and Scripture, A Nation Under Judgment definitely allows you to see that our country's direction might not be what our Founding Fathers had in mind centuries ago. It also helps the reader realize how far we've come from using the Bible as our guide in shaping the country's policies. What I enjoyed most is that the author doesn't come across in a heavy-handed manner. Yes, he makes you think; but everything is posed as a question, with statistics and quotes opening up the way for the reader to compare the policies of this country to what the Bible says. This isn't a book that offers solutions, as much as it is one that encourages the country and its leaders to turn their focus back to Godly principles.

A Nation Under Judgment is a well-researched, intriguing book that inspires the reader to consider what direction they want their country to take. It uses the Bible as its guide, not a political agenda. Every concerned citizen should read this book.
