More About This Book

Overview

The Soul of Atlas: Ayn Rand, Christianity, A Quest for Common Ground by Mark Henderson (Reason Publishing) is a very engaging, autobiographical account of the author's experience growing up as a son/stepson, caught between the two world views of his father and stepfather-devout Christian and committed follower of Ayn Rand, respectively. Henderson examines the underlying principles of Christianity and Objectivism, challenging readers to approach the seemingly contradictory world views with a fresh perspective and an open mind. The Soul of Atlas leads the reader through a powerful dialogue between two worlds, addressing such topics as Capitalism, Selfishness, Power, and even Joy. Henderson challenges readers to uncover the commonalities between these world views. What they will discover, as Henderson himself discovered, is that reason cannot rule out the need for faith, nor faith the need for reason. Indeed, we need both. "Something about these two domains of thought...is deeply compelling to many Americans," Henderson writes in the introduction to The Soul of Atlas. "Given that fact, one would imagine that there are shelves of books comparing and contrasting these ideologies. In fact, there are not. To date, the Conversation between Objectivism and Christianity has not played out. There is common ground to stand on, though, and people who adhere to either one of these two world views need to engage with each other and cooperate. It's vital today more than ever."
