The fall of Western civilization constitutes the most significant seismic shift in world history since the fall of Rome. And such eschatological developments call for an immediate response— an extended explanation based in a definitive Christian interpretive framework. What conclusions should Christians draw from this cataclysmic event?
The timing was never better for a 2,000-year survey of the rise and fall of the Christian West. We are living in a moment when we must understand the times in order to know what to do, and how to respond. The West has already fallen, although the news has yet to sink in with most Europeans and Americans in 2021. The East is on the rise. The Christian faith is fast moving east and south, and the glory has departed from the West.
“Epoch is a stunning achievement. It is extremely well-researched and is so accessibly written that it easily stands with the finest secular texts. . . I highly recommend it.”
- Dr. J.P. Moreland, Distinguished Professor of Philosophy, Talbot School of Theology, Biola University
“Here is a thoughtful, well-documented and researched analysis of the rise and fall of Western culture from the first century to the present.”
- Rev. Dr. Peter Jones, Professor Emeritus, Westminster Theological Seminary, Author, “Gnostic Empire Strikes Back,” “Spirit Wars”
“In times of crisis, we desperately need those who raise the prophetic alarms as well as those who mobilize us for the hard work ahead. In this powerfully incisive book, Kevin Swanson undertakes both roles.”
- George Grant, Pastor, Parish Presbyterian Church, Franklin, Tennessee
“I am truly amazed at the size and scope of this undertaking!”
