Why We Fall

From city halls to the halls of Congress and from corporate America to small town America - there has never been a time in modern history where every aspect of our culture has been so distressed and the resulting emotional, financial, and spiritual damage so wretched. Using solid biblical principles so simple even high school students can understand, Dorothy Burton explores the reasons behind the often-surprising downfall of those esteemed as being honest...and committed to God, family, community and country. While others often are the blame for many of our problems, some things we bring upon ourselves. From the Foreword by Dr. Tony Evans
