Is secularism a positive force in the modern world? Has the globalization of a worldview that discounts religion provided society more freedom or, rather, enslavement?
In Saving Leonardo, award-winning author Nancy Pearcey (Total Truth, How Now Shall We Live?) makes a lucid argument against the movement, suggesting the high priests of cultural secularism have actually fragmented society and compromised the important concepts of liberty and dignity. Outlining the threat of secular-thought takeover while analyzing the shifting expressions in art and media throughout history, Pearcey makes a strong case for biblical Christianity as the more holistic and humane alternative to a cultural trend that is growing toward greater spiritual destruction. Includes more than 100 art reproductions and illustrations supporting the written material.
“Nancy Pearcey has done it again and better than ever. She has taken the complex sophistication of the best cultural analysis and laid it out for any person to grasp, enjoy and use to live out their daily lives honoring Christ. An astounding accomplishment!” James W. Sire, author of The Universe Next Door
Brilliant . . . The book brings complex, abstract ideas down-to-earth — or rather, down-to-life. . . . Saving Leonardo bridges the gaps between the arts and the sciences, the theoretical and the practical. The book not only argues for the unity of Christian truth but exemplifies that unity and shows it in action.” Gene Edward Veith, provost, Patrick Henry College
