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.

Her most recent book is Finding Truth: 5 Principles for Unmasking Atheism, Secularism, and Other God Substitutes.
