A growing darkness threatens to destroy our culture and make victims of all of us. We don’t have to look far to see the threats to our personal security and liberty, to the survival and unity of our families, and to the continued existence of civilized society.
Many of the trends of the past fifty years have darkened the culture and confused the church, leaving a wide path of destruction. Victory through Light: How to Overcome the Growing Cultural Darkness is the first in a planned set of three books, the purpose of which is to expose the growing cultural darkness and call readers to Jesus Christ, who is “the true light” that “shines in the darkness.” He empowers us to “walk in light” and equips us with “the armor of light” that we may overcome the darkness besetting our nation and invading our lives.
Using relevant scriptures, personal testimony, and modern parables, this book enables Christians to see their way out of the confusing darkness and into the light of victory. It encourages believers to lead others to that light which overcomes the growing cultural darkness.
