In Twilight’s Last Gleaming Robert Jeffress expresses concerns that should resonate with every conservative reader. He begins with a sobering list of the ills affecting the heart and soul of our nation…the wholesale effort to remove any and all restrictions on same-sex marriages, abortions and embryonic stem cell research, runaway spending that is creating an insurmountable debt, the failure to adequately protect our borders, the pervasive political correctness that prevents us from waging a war on terrorism, the willingness to abrogate American’s rights at home to please Islamists abroad, the secular materialism that has caused people to deny that the United States was founded upon Christian principles.  

He correctly posits that the problems listed above will undoubtedly lead to America’s demise. Jefress asks the question that so many of us have, “How did we get into this mess?” He correctly lays the blame on the Christians of this nation who have been too eager to go along to get along and willing to compromise their beliefs in the process. 

Of course, we all know that, sooner or later, our nation, our way of life…everything will be gone. The end is coming. So it’s not a question of if, but when. He makes a compelling case that, while it is not possible to prevent the world from ending, it is possible to change God’s timing. The wisdom of this book is encapsulated 2 Chronicles 7:14, “If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 

Twilight’s Last Gleaming is not an obituary, but a clarion call to do what, as Christians, we have been called to do. There is still time, but the clock is ticking, If enough people take Jefress’ advice to heart. Refreshingly frank, upbeat and invigorating, this book is a must read for any Christian who is concerned about the country’s slide into iniquity and wants to do something about it.
