“I want readers to see how serious America is to receiving God’s judgment and wrath, and losing our freedom,” he says. “Repent America.”

In his new book, “Samson – The Modern-Day America” (published by WestBow Press), author Stephen R. Williams gives readers a greater insight into the meaning of the biblical story of Samson, offering new interpretations of ideas and details familiar to Christians.

Williams draws parallels between the story of Samson and the United States. According to him, Samson, who wielded incredible power and strength in the Bible, mirrors the history of the U.S. “Through time, both Samson and America acquired power that any entity could ever want,” he explains. “However, a common weakness leads them both to destruction.” Williams hopes to warn readers of this path, urging them to find in Samson’s story redemption.

An excerpt from “Samson—The Modern-Day America”:

“Many pulpit speakers think that Samson’s big sin or weakness was women, whereas I believe that Samson’s weakness with women was really the fruit of his personal sin—self. Samson always thought about himself. Samson wanted what Samson wanted. After he had slain a thousand men, he was thirsty and started crying to God, ‘Am I going to die of thirst now?’ All Samson thought about was himself. This prayer marks the first recorded time that he prayed to God.”

Williams urges readers to hold on to their freedom in the United States by turning to God. “I want readers to see how serious America is to receiving God’s judgment and wrath, and losing our freedom,” he says. “Repent America.”
