Awake, Not Woke: A Christian Response to the Cult of Progressive Ideology

(9 reviews) Write a Review

“Awake, O sleeper, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you light.”

—Ephesians 5:14

The long-simmering crisis that grips our culture has exploded in recent years, leaving us divided and intransigent. Discourse seems futile when we are no longer a people with shared principles or even a shared understanding of reality. What seems obvious to one person is patently absurd to the next. 

 This collapse of meaning is not accidental. It has been plotted and documented for decades, and now presents in its current form as Woke ideology. 

 Awake, Not Woke unmasks this ideology by examining its history, major players, premises, and tactics, showing us that “Wokeness” at its core is an ideology of rupture. Indeed, it is an ideology with fundamentalist and even cult-like characteristics that is on a collision course with Christianity.

With a wit and clarity that both exposes the absurd and mourns the brokenness of our culture, 

Noelle Mering provides answers to such questions as:  

  • Why does tolerance seem to only go in one direction?
  • How does the ideology create enemies, eroding friendship across the sexes and races?
  • Why is violence the natural end of Woke ideology?
  • Why are the Woke considered blameless?
  • Why have politics become all-absorbing?
  • Why is the corruption of children a logical outgrowth of Woke principles?
  • How is the movement fundamentally a rejection of the Logos?

This is a spiritual battle, and it is not accidental. The architects of revolution have long known that the transformation of the West had to come by way of destabilizing the social, familial, and religious pieties of a citizenry.

But there is a road to restoration, and it begins with identifying and understanding the operating principles of the Woke movement. While the revolution is a counterfeit religion resulting in alienation and division, the One True Faith brings restoration. It is this restoration -- of the person, the family, and the Faith -- for which we all hunger and is the most fitting avenue toward a more harmonious and whole society.

    A Must Read!

    Posted by Sarah G. on May 24th 2023

    I might be buying several copies of this book for people who desperately need to read it. If there was ever a book that just MIGHT make a victim of wokenessù pause and reflect on their ideology, this is it. As a writer myself, I cherished the excerpts, quotes and detailed research Mrs. Mering uses to elaborate her points. I wanted to highlight and savor each of them! The book is rich in history and yet concise. It almost reads like a thriller, unfolding each layer of the ugly Marxist beast we all, at least those who seek Truth, must face. Perhaps my excitement towards this book is that it gave me the nudge I needed to fight the good fight and confront these dangerous ideologies where I see them and it provided all the mighty weapons of Truth to help along the way. Awake, not Wokeù may be the call to action we all need!

    Awake, Not Woke

    Posted by C.D. F. on May 24th 2023

    I am three-quarters of the way through this intelligent, thoughtfully-written masterpiece¶well-researched and documented yet legible to the lay Catholic reader¶I am absolutely stunned by the convincing evidence contained therein of the neo-Marxist attacks of every aspect of American society and culture with the ultimate aim of the revolutionary overthrow of our Republic. I cant wait to read to the end and see the suggested Catholic/Christian responses by the author, Noelle Mering. I highly recommend this book to all concerned with the state of affairs in this country. Its very helpful to read the historical progression of this dangerous ideology as presented in this book.

    Outstanding compilation of the varying aspects of Marxism which is the root of "Woke" Must read for anyone who engages in the public arena and for every Christian to wake up to the reality of the cultural rot that Marxism always brings with it.
