“The Stream” by James Robison

James Robison, along with his wife Betty, are Christian television hosts based in the Dallas area.  Their program, Life Today, can be seen on a host of Christian radio networks.  The ministry of Life Today is primarily targeted at helping those (especially children) living in abject poverty in Third World Nations across the globe.
Life Today feeds these children, as well as digs wells to provide steady supplies of water to the children.

This life giving ministry makes James and Betty Robison giant heroes of faith in my book.

James, additionally, is a great American patriot.  For 40 years, or more, he has become  one of America’s greatest evangelical political commentators.  He is an expert on our Founding Fathers and has a clear understanding of what intentions drove our founding fathers and Constitutional framers.  His position is solid, without compromise and righteous.

“The Stream” is reflective of those Judeo-Christsian beliefs, and Robison does his usual good job in communicating his beliefs and opinions.  What an appropriate release for an election season.  I just pray that this book reach the masses during these final months of the 2016 campaign season.

This Ten part book is divided into 40 chapters. Early on, he addresses “Mobocracy in the Heartland”, a commentary on racial tensions born out of Ferguson, as well as similar tensions in the time of Lincoln.  Our nation is on a collision course to repeat history in the horrid condition of racial tension and unrest.

Part Two addresses the fact that a fourth spiritual awakening is our nation’s only hope.  We need what Robison calls a “Bottom-up, Inside-out Internal change”.  Furthermore, he maintains, we need to relearn the importance of gratitude and are in dire need of a return to wisdom.

According to James Robison, evil must be fought, laws must be just, and we need a smaller government that makes for larger citizens.  He continues that not only do “black lives matter”, but EVERY LIFE MATTERS.

America’s only hope is “…the hope for freedom and the only true hope for the  world.  It is the transforming power of gospel truth  demonstrated by changed lives and delivered by Spirit-filled believers.  As His people called by his name come together in brokenness and humility, turning from all of our indifference and wicked ways, our Lord Almighty Creator will hear from heaven and will forgive us, cover us, and heal the people and our land (2 Chronicles 7:14).

I received a hard copy of this fine book as an advanced readers copy (ARC) from the publisher (Worthy Publishing) in exchange for an honest and timely review.  And as a result, I commend this book to you.  There are no other expectations between the publisher, author, and this reviewer.  This review will be published on Goodreads.com, Amazon.com, and my blog, jonreviewsbooks1.wordpress.com.
