Joyner: We Must Act Like Wilberforce or We'll be Martyred Like Bonhoeffer
Eric Metaxas has written two books in recent years that have been widely embraced by the Religious Right, largely because the movement sees parallels between the Metaxas' subjects and their own ideological crusades.
The first book that caught their attention was the book "Amazing Grace: William Wilberforce and the Heroic Campaign to End Slavery" which was widely promoted by the Right as a parallel to their fight against abortion.
Then, in 2011, Metaxas released "Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy," a biography about German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer who was put to death by the Nazis for his role in the resistance, and to whom the Religious Right compares itself in opposing the Obama administration and liberals in general.
On Friday's episode of "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events," Rick Joyner saw prophetic significance in the combination of Metaxas two works, revealing that they serve as a warning that "if we don't take the kind of action that Wilberforce took, we're going to end up being martyrs like Bonhoeffer":
