In this new edition of a modern classic, Thomas Howard contrasts the Christian and secular worldviews, refreshing our minds with the illuminated view of Christianity as it imbued the world in times past--showing that we cannot live meaningful lives without this Christian understanding of things. This is an inspiring apology for Christianity, and a stirring critique of secularism.
Howard explains in clear and beautiful language why secular humanism is robbing us of the beauty, depth and profound truths of Christianity. With laser precision through lyrical ponderings he takes us through the dismal reductionist view of the world to the shimmering significance of this world as sign and sacrament. A book that is more timely now than when it was first written, and a prophetic examination of modern society's conscience.
