About the Author
As Christians, we are called to be witnesses of Christ's gospel, to be "the salt of the earth and the light of the world." How can we make that kind of impact in a society filled with darkness and decay? Lifeviews offers insight on confronting today's moral and social issues with an effective biblical response. Dr. Sproul first examines the major philosophies that affect the way Americans think and act: Secularism, Existentialism, Humanism, and Pragmatism. Presents ideas on how to apply a biblical perspective to areas that need the Christian's influence today: Economics, Art & Literature, Science, and Government.
As always, Sproul here is concise, lively, opinionated and learned. He convincing shows that the reigning *Ism* of modern Western culture is secularism. This is not the same as atheism. Less than ten percent of American claim to have strong doubts about the existence of God. But most all of us live our lives as if God did not exist, or was irrelevent. Sproul examines many of the thoughts and movements that contribute to this secular worldview that so dominates American culture. This is worth a careful read for most anyone who cares about the state of the American heart.
