"Very few thinkers in the world today understand as clearly as Vishal Mangalwadi does the impact of the Bible on Western civilization. He brings a unique perspective. Born and educated in India, he sees the West as others see us, which breaks the myopic view that so many politically sensitive Westerners have today. This is refreshing, invigorating, and very valuable reading. A tour de force from someone who sees us from the outside as well as the inside." --Chuck Colson, Founder, Prison Fellowship Ministries
"There is urgency about Vishal's excellent argument. He is right on with respect to the moral and spiritual dynamics of Western civilization. As an outsider, he is in a strong position to address Western minds because of his knowledge of history and facts, and because of the level of concreteness with which he lays out his case. His logic is impeccable and forceful. Of course, our sophisticates will be dismissive of him, but multitudes of 'ordinary people' will see the point and perhaps will do something about it." --Dallas Willard, Professor of Philosophy, University of Southern California; author of The Divine Conspiracy
"The current worldwide economic crisis shows what happens when distrust rules nations. Vishal Mangalwadi illuminates the path to restoring trust by embracing truth." --Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-chief, WORLD magazine; Provost, The King's College, New York City
From the Inside Flap
We live in times marked by much confusion and apprehension. In this landmark book, international scholar Vishal Mangalwadi expounds the gospel's power to heal Western society. With insights drawn from real-life struggles against corruption and years of study, he delves into the ideological roots of oppression. Reform, he argues, is never without controversy. Yet reforming a culture's values is a necessary precursor to liberation and hope.
