What does it mean to be "one nation under God"? Our Founding Fathers believed the words were more than a political slogan. Have we strayed from their vision? A Nation Under Judgment examines issues currently facing our country, such as hunger, homelessness, poverty, marriage, the environment, income inequality and the power of political campaign contributions in shaping policy. Each of these issues is examined from a social policy and Scriptural point of view, empowering readers to decide whether or not our nation is moving away from God and headed for judgment.… (més)

I was given this book as part of a blog tour in exchange for an honest review. This in no way influenced my review.

Is the United States of America truly a nation that follows God's principles? This is the question that this books seeks to answer. Filled with scripture and statistics, the overall message of the book was very meaningful and the topics were interesting. This book has an incredible amount of potential but I believe that it fell short in a few areas.

Throughout the book, I felt like there where too many statistics and quotes and not many original ideas. There were too many facts and not many conclusions. I sometimes got lost in the statistics and forgot what point the author was trying to make.

I really enjoyed the Biblical messages throughout the book. The message of not being gluttonous, greedy, lustful, ect. was a meaningful message. The parts of the book that included original ideas was very thought provoking. Although I do agree with much of what this book states, many problems of why the United States is not a God following nation were presented but a solution to this problem was not discussed in this book. If there were more unique ideas and solutions to the problems presented throughout this book, I would have enjoyed it much more.


Overall, the message was wonderful but the statistics bogged down much of the book. Even though this book was not the perfect book for me, it may be for you. I encourage you to give this book a try. ( )

In A Nation Under Judgment, author Richard Capriola engages the reader in a thought provoking discussion of how our nation has fallen from the governing principles of grace and wisdom of One Nation Under God that our founding fathers had intended.

Through a well researched, documented, and thoughtful construction, the author provides a richly descriptive book full of statistics, trends, examples, and fundamental Christian principles and scriptures to convey the message that our nation and its leaders need to turn away from its current individual and selfish practices and social policies back towards the original intentions of wisdom and care for all of the nation's citizens that our founding fathers had wanted the nation to be governed by.

A Nation Under Judgment is an intriguing and resourceful book that every US citizen should read. The author engages the reader in a conversation that will open their eyes and encourage them to call upon the leaders of our nation to stop their individual pursuits or inaction in regard to the social policies of our nation (hunger, homelessness, abortion, marriage, poverty, greed, etc), and empower them to restore the governing of our nation under the vision, intended practices, and wisdom of One Nation Under God.

Disclaimer: I received a copy of the book from the author / publisher in exchange for my honest review and participation in a virtual book tour event hosted by Pump Up Your Book Tours.
