A good analysis of why Christian churches have diminishing influence. The author provides much history by tracing of philosophical core assumptions of how the nation has arrived to a point where one does not need to include the word "God"
The book is pretty deep and takes much time to read. If one is interested in "how" the western nations got to a point where the words "God and Religion" need not be mentioned for one to have a normal life, this volume goes into detail. The author's arguments "build" on themselves. So following the chapters in sequence helps make sense of the book. The author does a good job at clarifying his terms. The book is well researched. Probably a class in either Humanities, Theology or basic Philosophy would serve one well before reading this book. It has many good intellectual "nuggets" in it if one takes the time to "mine them."
