Hope of Nations: Standing Strong in a Post-Truth Post-Christian World by John S. Dickerson Book Review

In Hope of Nations, John S. Dickerson is a research journalist and a pastor. He has written this book to explore what’s going on in the world and what is our hope for the future. He shared that the Post-Truth movement is rising and ideologies are changing and the millennial's will be more than the baby boomers. In the next election, they will have the most votes for the first time ever. He also shared that in thirty he believes China and India will be above the United States economies. He stated that that Christianity will be the second fastest ideology in the next thirty years. He opens in the book by sharing a story about The Folsom Street Fair in California. This event shows openly bondage sex that include public masturbation along with whips and chains. There is even minors that attend the event. There was even a two year old seen at the event and the parents said it was their decision to allow their child to attend the event. He also explored the Five Forces and nine Christian trends that is coming our way and how we can still survive in the future.

I would recommend this awesome book on the future to anyone who is a Christian and they want to be prepared for where the world is heading and what we can do about it. I was shocked to learn about this openly sexual acts festival. I haven’t ever heard about such an event and I was surprised to read about it. It’s heartbreaking to see how some parents aren’t even concerned about the message it’s sending to their children. I think one of the most important Christian trends was the first one about being rooted and grounded in Christian scriptures and this will help us to thrive in the mist of the chaos and confusion. This book shows that this book is important and we need to be a witness for Christ now more than ever. If you’re looking a new book on finding hope for the future, then read this book!
