    The Nations Rage” is an excellent read for the Christian believer in today’s increasingly anti-Christian world. While the number of believers in and followers of Jesus Christ increases in parts of the world (notably Africa and Asia), so does the amount of persecution targeted towards Christians. Sliker’s read is an excellent title addressing this reality that some either want to ignore or pretend doesn’t exist.

    Many things to like about this title:

    – Easy to read and understand.
    – Describing today’s world and how we are ripe for a mighty and much needed movement of God.
    – Ways persecution against Christian believers is increasing around the world.
    – God often does His greatest work through the “foolish” ( people who know they are weak, do not seek to bring attention to themselves and instead want to glorify the Lord, lack the resources the world’s rich and powerful possess, etc.).
    – Instead of being obsessed with leaving a legacy, focus on living for God’s glory in the power of the Holy Spirit.
    – Suggestions for how politics and economies will be disrupted under God’s judgment.
    – Believers, because of God’s presence and power in their lives, are an irritant to today’s world (Good!!!).
    – The need for the church to wake and be revived by God’s power in their lives and positively impact the world.

    Great encouragement and challenge to hang in there in God’s power and grace until He takes you home or brings worldwide revival. Will read again. Recommended.
