Just like the book’s title, this release by veteran author and minister Dr. Robert White is a wake-up call for the church and citizens of this nation. Dr. White contrasts the current political and social climate with our nation’s beginnings, offering a rich assortment of quotations by America’s founders that paint a vivid picture of the country’s potential. In our changing political climate, many citizens remain unaware of or apathetic toward the growing loss of freedom of speech, religious expression, and the right to privacy. The church has become irrelevant to the needs of non-believers, choosing to focus more energy on intra- and inter-denominational disputes over doctrine and financial matters on evangelism and activism. Providing clear examples that demonstrate why our founding fathers did not intend for “the separation of church and state,” Dr. White calls believers to step away from the boxing ring and out of their comfort zone while there is still an opportunity to restore lost religious freedom and see revival sweep America from coast to coast. The purpose of Awake America is to make the body of Christ aware of issues in our country and inspire members of all denominations and political affiliations to unite in a common effort to bring prayer, the Word of God, and spiritual renewal back to America.
