Publisher's Summary

The United States stands as the wealthiest, most powerful nation on the face of the earth. But now, in the midst of unprecedented and skyrocketing federal debt, severe economic troubles, political uncertainty, declining morality, a weak church, growing spiritual apathy and apostasy, historic natural disasters, and a myriad of other daunting challenges, many wonder if America’s best days are behind her.

Will history’s greatest democracy stage a miraculous comeback, returning to the forefront of the world’s economic and spiritual stage? Can America’s remarkable religious heritage be renewed today with another Great Awakening? Or will the rise of China, Russia, radical Islam, and other external threats - coupled with the U.S.’s severe internal struggles - send her into a death spiral from which there can be no return?

New York Times best-selling author and political expert Joel C. Rosenberg tackles the question: Is America an empire in decline, or a nation poised for a historic renaissance? Implosion will help you understand, through the lens of Scripture, the enormous economic, social, and spiritual challenges facing the United States in the 21st century and explain how you can make a difference at this critical crossroads in our history.

Great insight

I have been really grateful for this book at such a time as this. Very informative historically and biblically. Great ending to the book as well. It has encouraged me as a Pastor to make sure that I stay in the lane God has called me too. Proclaim Christ and Him crucified and yet a live

Not bad, but not as good as I had hoped

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I think it would be great for someone that is only informed by the mainstream media.

If you’ve listened to books by Joel C. Rosenberg before, how does this one compare?

I have listened to his novels which I loved.

What three words best describe Mel Foster’s performance?

A little distracting because of the monotone voice.

Could you see Implosion being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes - might be very well suited for a report/documentary.

Any additional comments?

Good information - well documented, explains where we are in one sphere, but missing the rest of the picture, geological, geopolitical, etc.. We are in the last days. All the nations of the earth are in turmoil economically. Millions are starving to death - millions dying for the faith, mega quakes, the sea and the waves have been roaring. What are the signs for if you don't (won't) see them for what they are? Also needs to re-think the "imminent return doctrine." Jesus said and Paul reiterated - that day shall not overcome US who are of the light. Only those in darkness will be surprised by Jesus return. We may not know the day or hour, but we WILL know the season if we are in, by and of Him. How could Jesus call the jews of his day a wicked and perverse generation for not knowing the day of THEIR visitation, but give us a pass? Time to wake up brothers and sisters!

Author much better at fiction writing

Having read Rosenberg's fiction series on the middle east conflict, I was very much looking forward to listening to some of his non-fiction work. Unfortunately, his preachy and repetitive style in this book was extremely boring and uninteresting. Much of the book made me feel like he was preaching to an uneducated child. As someone who is relatively educated on the middle east and the world political situation I expected more. I am a Christian and was looking forward to an educated viewpoint of a fellow Christian but this book fell extremely short of that. I won't be reading any of this other non-fiction works based on this experience.

Wow - To think he wrote this BEFORE the pandemic.

incredible read. Eye opening. Chilling. Riveting. Motivating. I wonder what he would have to say today.

This has been 10 years

We must now turn our hearts to GOD and HIS Messiah Jesus for the time is at hand for all things to be shaken. GOD has given us warning through HIS servants, including Joel Rosenberg. What we are experiencing now as a nation, is the outcome warned about in the book Implosion. The destruction of the foundation has occurred and the implosion will surely follow. We have been shown, there’s no hope in politics. Our only HOPE is in JESUS. Understanding what has transpired since the writing of this book affirms GOD is using Joel Rosenberg to speak TRUTH to this nation.

Even more true now in 2020 and beyond

Wow! Is America in scripture? Will America implode? What can Christian’s do to help save America from the threats within? Can there or will there be another Great Awakening? Lots of interesting history of the first two Great Awakenings included. The author penned this in 2012, but it’s even more true today!
