Rick Shrader‘s Review:
This is not a Christian book (it is published by Broadway, 1997) but neither is it a non-Christian book. The authors trace 500 years of Western history in generations of 80-90 years. Within each generation there are four “turnings.” It is their proposition that our history has run in repeated and predictable cycles both by generations (all ending in catastrophes, usually war) and by turnings. Consistent with 500 years of history, therefore, we are now in the fourth turning of this generation cycle. This will end in catastrophe in the 2020s. Interesting!
