Several very special civilizations have inhabited the American continent over the centuries, and each of them was eventually decimated or destroyed. Do we know, really know, what lead to their destruction? And does a similar fate await us?

Author Douglas E. Brinley has carefully studied the Book of Mormon, the teachings of modern prophets, and recent traumatic world events to explore what happened to the previous inhabitants of America. He sets forth the ten stages of decline through which all of the previous societies have passed before their destruction, and he compares our current circumstances to theirs.

Yet despite worrisome conditions, daunting trials, challenges to decency and right thinking, and great wickedness surrounding us, the Saints, if we are faithful, will see the hand of the Lord in our lives and the lives of our leaders to an even greater extent in the years ahead. President Gordon B. Hinckley declared:

It is the mission of this Church to stand as an ensign to the nations and a light to the world. We have had placed upon us a great, all encompassing mandate from which we cannot shrink nor turn aside. We accept that mandate and are determined to fulfill it, and with the help of God we shall do it.

Providing insights from the scriptures and living prophets that give us hope and an optimistic sense of opportunity in a time of upheaval, this book offers timely counsel on what we must do to avoid the fate that befell former civilizations.
