KATY, Texas, April 9, 2014 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Is the United States still one nation under God?
This is the vital question asked by Richard Capriola in his book, "A Nation Under Judgment."
Using his signature style Capriola outlines our nation's social polices and contrasts them with what he believes is God's point of view from Scripture. Reviewing polices such a hunger, poverty, homelessness, the environment and marriage, Capriola challenges readers to examine these polices and compare them to God's perspective.
"What does it mean to be one nation under God?" Capriola asks his readers. "Do the words have value only in time of national crises?" He explains, "Our Founding Fathers believed the words were more than a political slogan. Have we strayed from their vision?"
Capriola explains the purpose of his book: "I want it to be a thought provoking journey that empowers readers to decide for themselves if our nation is moving away from God's point of view when crafting social polices." He outlines the history of nations that have strayed from God's point of view and faced judgment and asks readers to consider if our nation is heading in the same direction.
Early reviews for the book have been impressive. For example, Heather Randall, CEO of Christian Women Affiliate said its "Well researched and Scripturally based." She added: "A Nation Under Judgment seeks to be a catalyst for inspiring believers toward deeper biblical thought regarding social policy."
Dolores Liesner, a reviewer for Christian Women Affiliate wrote, "Every legislator, and every believer, apologetic, preacher and evangelist needs this resource on their shelves."
A Nation Under Judgment is published by Mill City Press and is available on Amazon.
