This was a book waiting for Chuck Colson to write. As no other evangelical author can, Colson brings his political experience, thoroughly changed life, and lucid writing together at just the right time . . . "Moody Monthly."

Today's misspent enthusiasm for political solutions to the moral problems of our culture arises from a distorted view of both politics and spirituality--too low a view of the power of a sovereign God and too high aview of the ability of man. The idea that human systems, reformed by Christian influence, pave the road to the Kingdom . . . has the same utopian ring that one finds in the Marxist literature. It also ignores the consistent lesson of history that shows that laws are most often reformed as a result of powerful spiritual movements. I know of no case where a spiritual movement was achieved by passing laws.

First words
Prologue

March 24, 1998

General Brent Slocum's T-shirt stuck to his sweaty back and powerful, heaving shoulders as he grinned at his twenty-nine-year-old opponent. His adjutant's urgent breathing filled the small handball court.
