The Discerning This Present Time project is envisioned as a book or series of essays dealing with particular themes that seek to throw into greater light some of the major developments and issues that are going on in the world, with a particular emphasis on America. The first volume will focus on spiritual demographics and is expected to be completed before the end of the year.


And he said also to the people, When ye see a cloud rise out of the west, straightway ye say, There cometh a shower; and so it is. And when ye see the south wind blow, ye say, There will be heat; and it cometh to pass. Ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky and of the earth; but how is it that ye do not discern this time? Yea, and why even of yourselves judge ye not what is right?

—Luke 12: 54-57
