This book takes a closer look at the war on terrorism being waged by the United States. The Fight of Our Lives delves into the role of radical Islam in everything from not only to 9/11, but also to the incident at Fort Hood and the Iranian regime. While the Islamic terrorist have remained committed and resolute, this book also looks at how the American desire and will to fight seems to have waned.  This book also goes through many of the areas where errors have been made and leaders have yielded to the pressure for diversity. In an attempt to not appear bigoted, American defense has become weaker.

I enjoyed many aspects of this book, but found it lacking in some areas. I agree with most of what is portrayed in this book. The United States is weaker as a nation and we have work to do to prevent  future events from happening. However, this  book was a little more political in nature than religion based. Being listed in the Christianity/Religion section, I was hoping to find more than one chapter that was dedicated to that aspect. The book is well written and is easy to read, while offering a wealth of great information. If you are looking for something from more of a political or cultural view, this book is great. If you looking for something from a religious point of view, there just isn’t much here. Overall, still a good book with many great points.

 

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through Booksneeze Blogger Review Program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
