We are living in an age in which great nations are failing. The failure we are experiencing is a paradigm failure - one that involves the very ideas upon which modern governments are founded. This book analyzes this failure in the light of scripture, taking a grand tour of history to look at past failures of a similar magnitude. Armed with this keen insight, you will understand how today's great failure can only be resolved by going back to the Bible for a model of civil government, which is the third paradigm. You will also learn just what this biblical model consists of, and see that it is not a model for the distant past or the future. Rather, it is something for real men in today's world.
