About the Book

A fact that is largely unknown is that human civilization is directly dependent upon the Christian churches for societal health. In this age of mass destruction, we have moved this dependency from interesting to crucial, to that threshold point where the very survival of the human species is dependent upon Christian renewal. So, how are the churches doing? Brownsville, Florida stirs, but generally the divided, passive Christian churches are not in a position to provide that moral direction necessary to avoid mass self-inflicted suicide. Instead, the humanists would lead us to the global village, a trail void of the presence of God. It is a trap, like Marxism, doomed to harvest vast misery. Yet, no effective Christian opposition has risen to combat these appalling events. Clearly, Christianity desperately needs an awakening!

The purpose of this book is to identify the main legacy blunders in our inheritance, searching for the awakening. Sadly, the Spirit of God says it is too late for human correction. Instead, only God’s intervention can save us, first in His discipline, and secondly in the Holy Spirit’s love-touch. To survive, humanity must embrace the Holy Spirit. To assist in this embrace, this book offers a primitive theology of the Holy Spirit, trusting that it can help in the difficult times ahead. Praise Jesus!

About the Author

Eugene Shults was born in a rural area of Northwest Detroit just after the onset of the Great Depression. After college he served for five years in the Navy as an aviator followed by more than six years as a weekend warrior reservist. In the late 1950s he returned to school to earn an advanced degree in physics. Mr. Shults then joined IBM and began a career in computers and data processing. He taught information technology at the University of California Santa Barbara extension school, and later was president of his own computer company where he created many computer software innovations. In 1973 he received the baptism of the Holy Spirit which dramatically changed his life interests. In 1986, under the guidance of the Spirit of God, he gave up his life's vocation and began an intense study of church history, theology, and US History. This work is one of more than ten manuscripts he has produced with God's leadership. Father of eight children, Mr. Shults and his wife Carol, now live in Florida with two children still in the home.
