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.
