To the best of my recollection, I read Out of the Silent Planet by C.S. Lewis many years ago, well before I was saved. However, if in fact I did read it then, it was totally new to me this time around as I partook of it as an Audiobook.

I don’t know if the conclusions I came to originated where Lewis was coming from, but I did find an interesting correlation.

For about 60 years we’ve seen an increase in the degrading of the culture in Western nations; America in particular.

It appears as if God’s gone missing while all this madness envelops us.
Jonathan Cahn’s recent book The Return of the Gods provides the background and context for this Prophecy Update. We who have a Biblical, prophetic worldview can appreciate how prophetic events and the advent of what Cahn describes are on a collision course.
