This book tackles the problems the USA is facing today from a Christian point of view. Smith feels that our country's departure of a true religious faith has lead our country into the decline and chaos we are currently experiencing. This book is his recipe for making the USA great again.

Shortening the divide between the separation of church and state seems to be the main theme of this book, and although I am a life-long Christian, I feel this separation must remain. Who really knows what a true religion is? I believe in God and his son Jesus Christ, but I also don't demean the faith or religous figures of others.

Although I don't agree with all the opinions and views of the author, this book is very informative on cultural history and the influence religion has on our society. America Unraveling is well researched and documented, and it is written in an easy to read fashion. Smith has obviously done his homework in preparing this manuscript. Even though I don't agree with much of the content, I still feel this is an important book to read, especially if you are concerned with a lack of faith in our society.
