A Nation Under Judgment by Richard Capriola is a biblical indictment of today’s America, as we have watched the systematic removal of God from our schools, our legislation, and our national conscience. Capriola has gleaned hundreds of examples in which God has punished other nations for drifting from His commands about how life is to be conducted. He documents a whopping 599 citations useful for further study by readers who may wish to learn even more about a particular area in which America is courting the wrath of God. The statistical data Capriola cites is staggering at times. One wonders how things could possibly have gotten so bad without our being aware of it. The sad irony is that many of these horrendous statistical facts may have been intentionally hidden from general knowledge, no doubt because even the perpetrators of permissive legislation fear the public outcry that should result, once people understand just how unacceptable so many of our nation’s sins have become.

A Nation Under Judgment is an outstanding, comprehensive analysis comparing 21st Century America with God’s precepts, so clearly defined within the Bible. Among the topics meticulously discussed are: hunger, homelessness, abortion, gambling, marriage (and the degradation thereof), pornography, environment, poverty, gluttony, greed, child abuse, and the purchase of political pandering by egregious bribery. Richard Capriola does not offer solutions per se; he merely asks whether the reader believes our national attitude reflects God’s position in each of these areas. When one reads what God has to say about these topics, it becomes abundantly clear we are NOT truly “One Nation Under God” today. Regardless of one’s personal beliefs regarding any of these various topics, Christian and non-Christian readers alike must admit America has gone off the track where God’s will is concerned. That fact really should cause all readers to pause and consider what may be in store for America, possibly in the not-too-distant future.
