This Precarious Moment
America is at a crisis point. We have a limited amount of time to get it right. The nation must get “back on track” or be forever derailed. That is not melodrama. That is fact. Only Biblical truth can save our country. Some don’t seem to care that it is saved. But many of us do care. For our children, grandchildren, and future generations. There are six serious problems – racial strife, a massive immigration disaster, failure to understand Israel’s role in the world, millennial thinking, misunderstanding of the nature of government, and a church that has capitulated to culture – that are screaming for solutions. And the good news is: there are steps we can take. In this book, Pastor James Garlow and evangelical political activist David Barton present fellow Christians with six steps America needs to take to prevent chaos at this precarious moment in history.

The Last Train To The Concentration Camp
While everyone knew that the war would soon be over, Nazi Captain Wuerff is so fanatical that he'll continue his struggle to the bitter end. He is determined to crush the Dutch Resistance and rid The Hague of every last Jew. While his leaders amass tremendous fortunes in looted treasure, and prepare for their escape from Europe, Captain Wuerff remains focused on his deadly mission. Resistance hero Kees van Rijn is resolved to undermine Wuerff's plans. With his friends in the Resistance, he fights to keep hidden Jewish families alive and safe from the camps. During the war, over ten thousand Jews were hidden throughout the Netherlands, thus avoiding the Fuehrer's "Final Solution." While they suffered great hardships, they were at least alive. Kees stays on the run, moving families from one hiding place to another, often right under the noses of the Nazis. But Captain Wuerff has a plan to snare Kees and his comrades, and to round up the Jews in one fell swoop. If he can lure Kees' beautiful wife, Johanna, and his boy, Cornelius, into the trap, so much the better. In the last days of the war, Captain Wuerff plans to earn distinction by filling one last train with Jews for the concentration camps, and he intends for the van Rijn family to join them on this deadly final trip.
Bringing Back the Black Robed Regiment
They were prophets of liberty and truth. They bravely led their men onto the battlefield to face the cold steel of the dreaded Redcoats. They were hated and feared by the British who called them the ""Black Robed Regiment."" Who were they? They were America's ""patriot preachers"" of the 18th century. Believing the Bible addressed every subject, including politics, wearing their black preaching robes, they boldly preached about spiritual and civil liberty. When the inevitable clash with the British came, they courageously defended liberty. Volume I of Bringing Back the Black Robed Regiment documents how these preachers courageously led their men onto the battlefield. Volume II explains the biblical convictions that motivated them to fight and shows how America will not survive without a rebirth of patriotism in the pulpit.
