Apostate: The Men Who Destroyed the Christian West by Kevin SwansonWhatever happened to Western civilization? Somehow, Christians have lost ground in every cultural area of leadership and influence in Europe and America since 1700. This is an indubitable fact. The remaining Christians search for an explanation. They want to know how it happened.

This is the story of the decline and fall of Western civilization. It is the story of uncommonly powerful men, unfathomably evil men. . . apostates.

Reader beware!

This book faces head-on the spiritual forces that leveled a full-out attack on the Christian faith in the Western world. On the one hand, it is a story of demonic possession, insanity, suicide, mass-murder, adultery, homosexuality, cultural and social revolutions, and unbridled, maniacal apostasy. It is the story of apostasy on a massive scale. But it is also a story of hope and victory for the last men standing in the ashes of Western civilization. It will be a testimony to the inevitable triumph of Jesus Christ over the great men of renown who picked the wrong fight in the history of the West.

    This book is at the heart of what I have been studying almost a year. I hope it will answer many questions and fill in gaps for me. Granted, my disabilities affect my retention and discriminating faculties, but that is why I read and study a lot. I eagerly and wantonly await reception of this book. I’m sure it will be like discovering a gold mine!
