My review: Cleansing of America by W. Cleon Skousen

I feel smarter now. And a little less worried about what’s to come.

W. Cleon Skousen's Cleansing of America is full of information and hope. As a people, we will face horrible things, but we have a guide—a system—of protection. Provided we humble ourselves enough to follow it.

I love the gospel. And I love America. If we trust in the Lord and follow his teachings, all will be well. That’s the comfort I took away from Cleansing of America.

While reading, I couldn’t help but be impressed at how the information in the book is organized. Each chapter yielded more and more. (chapter 5 is my fave) I kept thinking of people in my life I wanted to share this book with. I honestly can’t wait until I can run out and get copies for my brothers, my mom, and my hubby.

Growing up, stories of Armageddon and the Second Coming of Christ scared me. I worried about all the horrors that would come to pass before the Millennium, well aware that the time draws nearer every day. But Skousen’s book eases those worries. It’s a well-timed reminder that we have a plan; we just need to stick to it.

I also appreciate the unflinching, matter-of-fact style in which these points are presented. Having never read Skousen before, I was relieved not to discover a dusty tome that required deciphering. Anyone can pick up Cleansing of America and understand its message. Accepting it, of course, is their choice.

i so need to read this, as well as the 5,000 Year Leap. Hard to find the time--do they have it on tape?
