Will America fail? That question has surged to the forefront of our nation’s escalating culture war. The fear of “American decline” has emerged as the recurring hot topic on primetime cable news programs and daytime talk radio shows. Public opinion polls routinely report that once-devoutly hopeful Americans are now more pessimistic than optimistic about our country’s future. Gradually, the fear of American decline has begun to reshape our political DNA. While authors on both ends of the political spectrum have addressed the question of American decline with honesty and depth, even the most thorough and engaging of these works tend to be too academic, too impersonal or too narrowly focused on a single Presidency. Their Baby Boom or Gen-X authors, while often credentialed, hail from conventional political backgrounds with predictable cultural outlooks, rooted in the experiences of Watergate, Vietnam or the Reagan Revolution. Written by Ryan Houck, the narrator, producer and writer of If I Wanted America to Fail—a groundbreaking viral video that quickly earned millions of hits on YouTube—Will America Fail? is a genuinely understandable and relatable book on America’s long-term political future from a fresh, persuasive young source. In the space of only a few days, millions of Americans watched If I Wanted America to Fail. The overnight YouTube sensation roared into the political limelight, gaining national media attention by depicting a bleak, seemingly pessimistic vision of America’s decline. Conservative commentators hailed the video as “brilliant” while Fox News’s Eric Bolling declared it a new “conservative manifesto.” Will America Fail? addresses the gnawing questions that have begun to erode our national confidence, such as: Is America, like Rome before it, destined to crumble and collapse? Have the values of our Founding Fathers become antiquated and unnecessary in the Information Age? Will the 21st Century belong to China or the United States? Is the next generation of Americans prepared to lead? The video, If I Wanted America to Fail, was a dire depiction of our nation’s challenges. However, surprisingly, Will America Fail? makes the case that many of those challenges can and will be overcome within our lifetime. The author’s take on America is decidedly, and surprisingly, optimistic. Will America Fail? is both a “message of hope” from Millennials to Baby Boomers as well as an optimistic, frank and original take on the future of conservatism in the 21st Century. Written in a deeply personal style and filling the vacuum of optimistic conservative literature, Will America Fail? makes the bold prediction that America stands at the threshold of renewal—and that many members of the Millennial Generation will not only live to see it, they will inaugurate it. Unlike most political commentary on bookshelves today, Houck’s message is born of the Information Age. Readers in their twenties and thirties will instantly discover modern ways to connect with the timeless truths of our American Experiment, while older readers will find both a new sense of optimism for our nation’s long-term future as well as a new conservative language that will appeal to their Millennial children. For all generations, Houck’s take is powerfully original—striking the same provocative chord that made If I wanted America to Fail an unqualified success.

The Case for a Creator explored the scientific evidence for God; The Case for Christ investigated the historical evidence for Jesus; The Case for Faith responded to eight major objections about Christianity; The Case for The Real Jesus refuted the current challenges to the Bible and Christ … Now, in The Case for Grace, Lee Strobel crafts a compelling and highly personal experiential case for God, focusing on God’s transforming work in the lives of men and women today. Writing with unusual candor, Lee draws upon his own journey from atheism to Christianity to explore the depth and breadth of God’s redeeming love for spiritually wayward people. He travels thousands of miles to capture the inspiring stories of everyday people whose values have been radically changed and who have discovered the “how” and “why” behind God’s amazing grace. You’ll encounter racists, addicts, and even murderers who have found new hope and purpose. You’ll meet once-bitter people who have received God’s power to forgive those who have harmed them—and, equally amazing, people mired in guilt who have discovered that they can even forgive themselves. Through it all, you will be encouraged as you see how God’s grace can revolutionize your eternity and relationships… starting today.

A history of the successes of the human rights movement and a case for why human rights work Evidence for Hope makes the case that, yes, human rights work. Critics may counter that the movement is in serious jeopardy or even a questionable byproduct of Western imperialism. They point out that Guantánamo is still open, the Arab Spring protests have been crushed, and governments are cracking down on NGOs everywhere. But respected human rights expert Kathryn Sikkink draws on decades of research and fieldwork to provide a rigorous rebuttal to pessimistic doubts about human rights laws and institutions. She demonstrates that change comes slowly and as the result of struggle, but in the long term, human rights movements have been vastly effective. Attacks on the human rights movement’s credibility are based on the faulty premise that human rights ideas emerged in North America and Europe and were imposed on developing southern nations. Starting in the 1940s, Latin American leaders and activists were actually early advocates for the international protection of human rights. Sikkink shows that activists and scholars disagree about the efficacy of human rights because they use different yardsticks to measure progress. Comparing the present to the past, she shows that genocide and violence against civilians have declined over time, while access to healthcare and education has increased dramatically. Cognitive and news biases contribute to pervasive cynicism, but Sikkink’s investigation into past and current trends indicates that human rights is not in its twilight. Instead, this is a period of vibrant activism that has made impressive improvements in human well-being. Exploring the strategies that have led to real humanitarian gains since the middle of the twentieth century, Evidence for Hope looks at how these essential advances can be supported and sustained for decades to come.

Learn how the seeds of the Trump presidency were sown in the Obama White House. In this unvarnished account of faith inside the world’s most powerful office, Michael Wear provides unprecedented insight into the highs and lows of working as a Christian in government. Reclaiming Hope is an insider’s view of the most controversial episodes of the Obama administration, from the president’s change of position on gay marriage and the transformation of religious freedom into a partisan idea, to the administration’s failure to find common ground on abortion and the bitter controversy over who would give the benediction at the 2012 inauguration. The book is also a passionate call for faith in the public square, particularly for Christians to see politics as a means of loving one’s neighbor and of pursuing justice for all. Engrossing, illuminating, and at time provocative, Reclaiming Hope changes the way we think about the relationship of politics and faith. "A pre-Trump book with serious questions for our politics in the age of Trump...More necessary than ever before." -- Sojourners "Should be read by Democrats and Republicans, liberals and conservatives, and all who are concerned by the state of our politics.” --Kirsten Powers, USA Today columnist and CNN political analyst "Reclaiming Hope will certainly give you a fresh perspective on politics--but, more importantly, it may also give you a fresh perspective on faith.”--Andy Stanley, senior pastor of North Point Ministries "An important and extremely timely book...Get it, read it, and talk to others about it." --Timothy Keller, author of Reason for God "An important contribution in this age of religious and political polarization." --J.D. Vance, author of Hillbilly Elegy "A lifeline for these times." --Ann Voskamp, author of One Thousand Gifts and The Broken Way “We can hope, and this book can help us.” --Russell Moore, president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
