America's Secular Challenge: The Rise of a New National Religion (Brief Encounters) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this timely and wide-ranging book, one of America's leading public intellectuals explores the rise of radical secular humanism as a religious experience. London shows that while secular humanism has it's saints, sinners, and even its quasi-religious rituals, it is too anemic and self-centered a philosophy of life to serve America and the West in its battle against the threat of radical Islam.

Book News Annotation:

President of the Hudson Institute, London argues that US culture's increasing commitment to the tenets of radical secularism undermines its resolve to oppose a fanatical foe on the world stage. Among the characteristics that he attributes to the movement are opposition to traditional religion, unbridled sexual expression, economic egalitarianism, and belief in scientific rationality. He does not provide a bibliography. Annotation ©2008 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
