The Fight of Our Lives - A Book Review

I think it's fair to say that the interest in Islam has grown since the devastating events of 9/11. In an attempt to pick up the pieces, this nation has sought to understand the why's and the how's of such brutal terrorism. In my opinion we've come a long way and we have a long ways to go. William Bennett is a leading authority on historical facts as they relate to Christianity. He also has a brilliant take on current events. I think overall this book is fair. It's not a "bash Obama" book, but it also doesn't excuse that under his watch more problems have surfaced. This is a brave book. The opinions cannot be popular with everyone, but they are important. The truth about a real enemy is frightening, but Bennett is not afraid to bring them to the light. It was also an excellent retelling of so many horrid events in our recent history including Fort Hood of 2009. He doesn't mince words. His facts are accurate. This is an important book for the people of this country.
