Ruling in Babylon speaks directly to the immediate needs of: Senior pastors who are concerned about how to reach, lead, and leave a spiritual legacy to young adults which increasingly don't want to be reached, led, or left anything. Youth pastors dealing with the challenge of both captivating and equipping young people for infiltrating secular society for Christ's glory. Parents who are watching their fledglings leave God en masse once they step foot on state-run colleges and universities. The young christian who wants to stand for Christ in the public square and not look like a public square in doing so. My pastoral participation in a renowned international ministry that deals directly with thousands of students around the world has taught me that young people do want to change the world-but they're confused as to where to begin. Ruling in Babylon shows you where to begin, and it is a road-tested, dominion blueprint that will equip the young adult with the leadership skills and sufficient motivation to rise to a place of power in an overly wicked environment just as the prophet Daniel did.
It is really difficult to believe that Giles, er, ah, the Rev. Giles is a pastor. He touts himself as a "theologian" and big game hunter (tough guy), but the proof, as Ma used to say, is in the pudding (Okay, Ma wasn't entirely original). The pudding for a preacher is his sermon, a radio talk show host his radio talk show (Oh, hum...), and the written word his book. Of late the Rev. Giles churns them little cupcakes out, and while they may have some mass appeal to that fringe of the church-going Right who barely skim the headlines let alone a few verses in their Bibles, he does not persuade an audience barely over the line from the sanctified few to the secularized many. But perhaps that's the audience he does not want to reach, i.e., the unregenerate and reprobate, those predestined to damnation. Theologian Giles weighs in with his commentary on the book of Daniel and in typical Evangelical fashion, skews it to young people using his youthful slang lingo to capture the hearts [and minds] of his readers. But theologian Giles does a poor job of setting the historical and literary context, something that a seminary graduate such as himself should easily be able to do. Instead we are given hip-slogans, a white-man's-jive, and strained applications. If Giles' approach in his book(s) mirrors that of his Sunday morning sermons, no doubt he is using a silly outline in a PowerPoint presentation where his devotees follow along and fill in the blanks. By way of a Scriptural illustration, while new believers will crave the "milk" of the word, they must necessarily in time crave the "meat" of the word. As the writer who penned those words suggests, to crave the milk only and not the meat, is evidence of immaturity and non-growth. The idea is that believers must be challenged to grow and not stay in their immaturity. A first reading of this book convinced me that the Rev. Giles is not attempting to move his readers from immaturity to maturity, but rather, as German theologians (real ones) would say, is merely addressing their zits um leben (present life situation). While addressing one's current life situation may be important, as Platonic as it may sound (for those of you in seminary, Plato was a philosopher), it is important for any teacher to strongly move his pupils (readers here) from their current state to the place in which they should be. That's called "stretching" in acting: as a good director will force an actor to stretch in self-discovery, a good teacher (preacher) and writer should seek to stretch his readers. Rev. Giles, in my view, has let his readers down (the frozen chosen), and has once again opened up the Christian movement to scorn and derision from the very audience that we, as Christians, are called to reach. And so it goes.
Doug Giles graphically uses the Biblical example of young Daniel and his 20-something friends when they led the reformation of Nebuchadnezzar's corrupted Babylon, to inspire young adults to become active in their communities. Through compassionate understanding of today's overwhelmingly secular environment, Giles seeks to turn a general lack of interest in the world around them into action, as he demonstrates how today's 20-somethings can make a real difference.
There is nothing "political" about this book, and Giles does not even suggest a link between Jesus Christ and George W. Bush [whose name is never mentioned]. It is clear that Rosemary Schaffer [aka rosemaryfrmn] has not bothered to read "Ruling in Babylon", and for reasons only she knows, has decided to trash an honest attempt by an unabashed Christian to motivate today's youth.
As a long time journalist and former diplomat, her billingsgate-filled screed sadly reminds me of equally twisted commentatary from the likes of Bryant Gumbel, Al Franken and Michael Moore. One wonders what possibly could have inspired Rosemary's slanderous hit job ... or who put her up to it.
"Ruling in Babylon" is written by a committed, passionate pastor and succeeds in its worthy objective.
In his book, Doug Giles has presented a lot of ideas (not new ones by any means) that the "bien-pensants" of the American intellectual elite, committed to nothing more than their own moral "self-gratification", will truly hate, but which everyone, not simply "twenty somethings", will profit by hearing, even if not for the first time. Someone once said that every generation must rediscover truths for themselves, and Mr. Giles, in helping young people to rediscover the truths transcendant of the boundaries of time and culture shows that, indeed, there is nothing new under the sun, and, happily, many of those "non-new" things are very good indeed. Like a happy warrior, Mr. Giles takes up his sword of truth happily and gladly and never descends to launching self-righteous jeremaiads, something this work, in the hands of someone with less insight or sympathy for the human condition, might easily (and pessimisticaly) have done.
This is a wonderful book, and folk like Mr. Giles, content to swim against the tide of self-destructiveness so tightly embraced by the "best" people of our society, gives me hope for the future and for the next generation.
I found that unlike one reviewer who said that he (the author) made the right people mad, that he is probably making a lot of people mad at him, mad that he can't articulate his points very well without resorting to slamming we want to simply make the opposition mad, or do we want to persuade them that their views are in error and to consider another view?
Steel balls
Doug Giles has truly created a masterpiece that will be effective in equipping Christians for action, for many years to come! This book has definitly waken me up to my apathy and slack-marred life, and caused me to seek God with all of my mind. Doug tackles everything from self-righteous Phariseeism to reading, and brings it all under the Lordship of Christ. You have GOT to get this quick-read if you're at all interested changing this world, instead of complaining and hoping to escape from this world!
