Sinopsis:

In his classic novel Brave New World, English writer Aldous Huxley wrote of a future where human beings are manipulated, abused and even killed for the perceived good of society. Huxley envisioned a future where human life is cheapened and easily disposed of for the benefit of a controlling elite. Christian philosopher C.S. Lewis referred to such an elite as “men without chests.” Indeed, in such a “brave new world” humanity itself is redefined to allow for the elimination of those deemed inferior.

Is Huxley’s ghoulish nightmare about to descend upon America? Will we lose control over our destiny to an elite comprised of “men without chests?”

Thomas Glessner writes of the gradual dehumanization on human beings that has invaded American culture and has accelerated at a frightening pace since the 1973 Supreme Court decision of Roe v. Wade. The subsequent dehumanization of unborn human beings and the emergence of abortion-on-demand have opened the door to a culture where humanity is redefined and those deemed of insignificant value are eliminated.

This book discusses the ongoing cultural battle between the traditional sanctity-of-life ethic, which has been the foundation of Western civilization and American culture for centuries and the modern quality-of-life ethic, which is increasingly gaining control in academia as well as the hearts and minds of the public.

Glessner challenges the Christian church to respond to the current cultural decline by placing priority upon efforts to restore the sanctity-of-life ethic in our cultural institutions. Only through such monumental efforts will the emergence of a “brave new world” be defeated.

With foreword by Senator Tom Coburn, United States Senate.
