Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

IS SECULARISM A POSITIVE FORCE IN THE MODERN WORLD?
 
Or does it lead to fragmentation and disintegration? In Saving Leonardo, best-selling, award-winning author Nancy Pearcey (Total Truth, co-author How Now Shall We Live?) makes a compelling case that secularism is destructive and dehumanizing.
 
Pearcey depicts the revolutionary thinkers and artists, the ideas and events, leading step by step to the unleashing of secular worldviews that undermine human dignity and liberty.  She crafts a fresh approach that exposes the real-world impact of ideas in philosophy, science, art, literature, and film--the voices that surround us in the classroom, in the movie theater, and in our living rooms.
 
A former agnostic, Pearcey offers a persuasive case for historic Christianity as a holistic and humane alternative.  She equips readers to counter the life-denying worldviews that are radically restructuring society and pervading our daily lives.  Whether you are a devoted Christian, a determined secularist, or don't know quite where you stand, reading Saving Leonardo will unsettle established views and topple ideological idols.

About the Author

Nancy Pearcey wrote Saving Leonardo while serving as research professor of Worldview Studies at Philadelphia Biblical University. Pearcey studied Christian worldview at L'Abri Fellowship in Switzerland with Francis Schaeffer and was later named the Francis A. Schaeffer Scholar at the World Journalism Institute in New York City. She earned a master's degree from Covenant Theological Seminary and pursued further graduate work in the History of Philosophy at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto.

Pearcey has been a commentator on Public Square Radio, the founding editor of the daily radio program "BreakPoint," and has appeared on NPR and C-SPAN. Currently she is a fellow at the Discovery Institute and editor-at-large of The Pearcey Report. She coauthored a column in Christianity Today, and has authored or contributed to several books, including The Soul of Science and How Now Shall We Live? (with Charles Colson, contributions by Harold Fickett). Her most recent book was the best-selling Total Truth: Liberating Christianity from Its Cultural Captivity, which won the 2005 ECPA Gold Medallion Award for best book of the year on Christianity & Society.
