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," coauthor "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--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, determined secularist, or don't know quite where you stand, reading "Saving Leonardo" will unsettle established views and topple ideological idols. Includes more than 100 art reproductions and illustrations that bring the book's themes to life.
Praise for "Saving Leonardo":
"A feast for the mind and for the eye. Nancy Pearcey not only is a trustworthy guide for a nuanced discussion on the relationship between culture and the gospel, but she is a gifted teacher as well . . . "Saving Leonardo" is a rare, precious gift to the churches and universities alike."
Makoto Fujimura, artist and author of "Refractions: A Journey of Faith, Art, and Culture"
"G. K. Chesterton said 'the danger when Men stop believing in God is not that they'll believe in nothing; but that they will believe in anything.' Nancy Pearcey understands where believing in anything leads and in this book she reveals where a secular philosophy is taking us. A balanced, fair, and impacting work "
Cal Thomas, syndicated and "USA Today" columnist
"Nancy Pearcey helps a new generation of evangelicals to understand the worldview challenges we now face and to develop an intelligent and articulate Christian understanding . . . "Saving Leonardo" should be put in the hands of all those who should always be ready to give an answer--and that means all of us."
R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
"Nancy Pearcey is an intellectual prophet in our day and one of Evangelicalism's foremost cultural observers. "Saving Leonardo" is a tour de force. In it, Pearcey provides a penetrating analysis of the nature of contemporary secularism, a helpful exposition of how we got to the present situation, and a well-crafted strategy for changing the situation. This is her best effort yet . . . a must read."
J. P. Moreland, distinguished professor of Philosophy, Biola University and author of "The God Question
""Nancy Pearcey is unsurpassed in the current generation of Christian thinkers . . . The magic continues with this book. Pearcey's virtues as a writer and thinker are once again fully evident in the range of material that she has mastered, the encyclopedic collection of data that she presents, and the analytic rigor with which she separates truth from error in worldviews. She is a prophetic voice for contemporary Christians."
Leland Ryken, Clyde S. Kilby professor of English, Wheaton College
