by Robert Jeffress

Review  |   Author Bio  |  Read an Excerpt

Review:

In Twilight’s Last Gleaming, Robert Jeffress tackles controversial, relevant, and timely issues about America’s last days. “Although we cannot prevent America’s eventual demise, we can delay it … and make a difference for eternity at the same time.” His brazen, informative writing is sure to stir emotions and prompt critical thinking.

Jeffress addresses Islam, secularism, evangelism, abortion, homosexuality, prayer (and the lack thereof), politics, and even retirement. He devotes entire chapters to tolerance, voting, the church, and persecution, then climaxes with a practical look at the last days. He feels that the certainty that we are living in America’s last days (or, at least, our last days) should not paralyze us with fear but energize us to pour our time and resources into expanding God’s kingdom. Although his main focus is not the rapture, his thoughts on the last days are encouraged by his pre-tribulation worldview. He uses examples from history and support from Scripture, referencing people from Albert Einstein to Martin Luther King, Jr. to Randy Alcorn to Jeffress’s own first-hand experiences. At the end of the book are seven discussion questions for each chapter that can be used to stimulate both personal thoughts and group conversation.

Jeffress was schooled at Southwestern Theological Seminary and Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the senior pastor of 10,000-member First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas. He is known for his bold, biblical and practical approach to ministry, which is clearly represented in Twilight’s Last Gleaming.

This book is not for the faint of heart. It will test your beliefs, stir your emotions, and sharpen your intellect. Jeffress writes what he believes unabashedly and with practical application. If you are wondering what Christians can do right now in our culture, in our churches, and in our government, you need to pick up this book. As Mike Huckabee writes in the foreword, “Read this book prayerfully. Then give it to friends and urge them to read it. Time is of the essence!” – Stephanie Warner, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Book Jacket:

Pastor and Fox News, CNN and MSNBC media personality Robert Jeffress shows us how America’s last days can be our best days. We have an unprecedented opportunity to have a positive, eternal effect on the lives of those around us.

Never in recent history have Christians been more discouraged and fearful about our country’s future. Economic chaos, immorality, terrorism and global turmoil have convinced many that we are living in the twilight days of America. Dr. Robert Jeffress agrees. But this is not the end of the story, he writes in Twilight’s Last Gleaming. Although we cannot prevent America’s eventual demise, we can delay it . . . and make a difference for eternity at the same time.

For everyone who wonders what can be done right now—within our culture, our churches, in the voting booth and our neighborhoods—Jeffress answers with biblical insight and real-world clarity, showing Christians how to seize this unprecedented opportunity and point people to our only Hope. Includes a foreword by Mike Huckabee.
