This thought-provoking essay exposes, in clear and accessible terms, the fallacies inherent in arguing for a "morality without God" and the impact that has had on contemporary Western society, and in shaping Western approaches to matters such as multiculturalism, separation of Church and State, political correctness, and culture wars.The denial of the transcendent origin of the moral values that form the basis of our civilisation, Roversi argues, does not lead to some sort of secular Utopia with its own "neutral" morality, but to the rise of religious beliefs other than Christianity, which will bring their own - often opposite - moral values."For over two centuries now secularists have contended that society and the moral order that underpins it can work perfectly well without God and religion, and for almost as long apologists for the latter have sought to refute them. This book has been written in answer to the latest proposals for a Godless society. The author has taken the wise decision to go on the attack against the opposition rather than fall back on the defensive, aiming to prove the fallacy of each of their arguments for a Godless moral order, which he achieves quite adequately by picking apart the logic of each assertion."
