About this deal

I knew this was going to be a challenging read (with a heavy dash of conviction sprinkled in there 😐), but I really didn't expect it to be this easy to read. I read it in about two sittings, and I enjoyed it so much, I wish it would have taken longer so I could have had more time to think about all the different points that were made. If we find religion to be a crashing bore, and are stimulated only by what is selfish and secular, how do you think we will fair in a place where the only things we really love are obliterated?

If you're not a Christian, I still highly recommend it so you can get a better idea of what a real Christian is supposed to act like. This stepped on my toes quite a few times and I'm thankful for the contemplation and conviction it evoked. Matt Walsh is a powerful voice standing up for the value of religious virtue in today’s increasingly secular culture. I have forsaken myself because I became lost in the world and let myself embrace all the emptiness it offered.

If that isn't enough, he then decides to give vocabulary lessons and explain how Christianity is indeed a religion.

Churches have allowed the dilution of the Christian message and no longer equip believers to identify and fight evil. Christians in the Middle East, in much of Asia, and in Africa are still being martyred for the faith, but how many American Christians are willing to lay down their smartphones, let alone their lives, for the faith? I've "unfriended" people on social media, stopped listening to comics, speakers, and walked out of museums. Matt Walsh of The Daily Wire exposes the pitiful state of Christianity in America today, lays out the stakes for us, our families, and our eternal salvation, and invites us to a faith that’s a lot less easy and comfortable—but that’s more real and actually worth something. This isn’t actually sound biblical doctrine but rather different heresies that make us feel good or “fit in” with the world.He is the host of The Daily Wire's Matt Walsh Show, where he boldly tackles the tough subjects and speaks out on faith and culture in a way that connects with his generation and beyond.

In the same way, a person cannot adopt the morality of modern society without leaving the Christian faith behind.The book is not an easy read, but it is a convicting one for today's Christian that wants to see the church survive. When you argue almost universally from authority, there is always at least 75% of all thinking crowd that you lose. He tears apart church settings and pastors who have compromised their faith, but then rips into people for not going to church. The lives that American “Christians” lead aren’t much different from those of their atheist neighbors, and their knowledge of theology isn’t much better either. Walsh explains why that trend must be reversed if America is to save itself—and its founding principles.
