The essential basis for this book is that Americans have used popular culture as a standard of success or ethic of social equality and lost sight of the word of God since Colonial days. Babcock (humanities, Liberty Univ.; The Night Attila Died: Solving the Murder of Attila the Hun), in exploring the historical, political, and religious development of America, shows that humanism was the seed that flourished in the New World. Through discourses on moral, political, economic, and religious paradigms, including creationism, abortion, and gay rights, Babcock calls for evangelical Christians to put Jesus first as a way to influence American culture. He states that Americans, like the Romans, have been accumulating a bewildering mass of alternative philosophies of life and argues that Christianity must be exclusive. The text is a confusing mix of the author's personal experiences (missionary work in Africa), conjecture, historical facts, and biblical quotes (King James Bible). For a limited audience of militant evangelicals.
