Review

Exhausted by the perishing morals of our society, Andrew J. Schatkin reminds that the Holy Bible is not a book of recommendations, but divine words to better our lives and enhance nations. Whether or not you agree with the author's conclusions, he explores a wide variety of contemporary issues that force us to engage in tortuous exercise to find the right answers. Intellectually stimulating, this book will leave the reader richer, wiser, and well informed. (Rev. Dr. Charles Curtis)

Format: Paperback
In "Essays on the Christian Worldview and Others Political, Literary, and Philosophical" Andrew J. Schatkin explores the personal, religious and real world consequences serious people face in making morally acceptable choices in an imperfect world.

Schatkin received a Master of Divinity from Princeton Theological Seminary in 1973, but decided to become a lawyer so that he could help make the world a more just place. He examines the modern value of Christ's teachings in a way that both believers and non-believers can respect and use in their daily lives, whether personal or public. His 34 years of law practice provide a solid practical understanding of the human condition.

"Essays on the Christian Worldview and Others Political, Literary, and Philosophical" will be especially useful for public speakers and writers who need fresh ideas that will provoke thought and discussion. Because he addresses issues that are of concern to all faiths, his book will appeal to pastors, rabbis and an ample spectrum leaders of other religions, as well as teachers and professors of theology. His worldview is broadly inclusive, not exclusive.

His definition of basic Christian thought includes traditional family morality along with a great concern for alleviating poverty and promoting social justice. He explores the need for moral values in a society that has mistakenly deluded itself into elevating money, power, and greed to the level of philosophical goals and values. Schatkin explains why he feels that economies should include elements of both capitalism and socialism. He argues that our society is mistaken in denying any absolute moral truth and substituting moral relativism.

"Exhausted by the perishing morals of our society," writes Rev. Dr.
