GlobeQuake by Wallace Henley

I began reading this book in hopes for learning some specific Biblical advice for living in this day and time.  As I read I realized the book is not written for that purpose.  It is more of a book that describes the times we are living in and how they affect the various spheres of life.  Yes, there is Biblical advice...mostly a spur to be prepared spiritually...more of a general nature. 
The book was well- written and accurate.  I believe anyone concerned with the nature of the world, the politics, the changing value system would enjoy reading this book.  It is not an easy read.  Many times it reads almost like a history text.  It could very well be used for a book study or to stimulate intellectual discussion.  Also, the book is not a stirring, emotional read.  Very matter of fact and practical.
The author covers the sphere of person, church, family, education, government and business-marketplace.  He ends the book  with a chapter on Hope.  Our Hope is in Jesus Christ because He is the ruler of all nations and our Savior.
To be honest, it was difficult reading for me because it just seemed very slow and , as I mentioned before, more like a textbook. Nothing wrong with the writing. ..just the style.
I was provided this book for free in exchange for my honest opinion of the book.
