Not everyone who reads this paperback will be familiar with the history of modern thought, but Sharon James has succeeded in providing her readers with an excellent primer on the subject.

She traces out the contributions of academics, philosophers, scientists, and proponents of sexual liberation, who have persistently promoted a naturalistic worldview over the past 200 years. Their agenda is set out clearly: there is no God, no universal truth, and no standard of right and wrong. Rejecting such so-called shackles, the pursuit of freedom without any limits continues unabated.

Instead, the world has invented its own ideas of truth, morality, and justice. By rejecting God and absolute truth, each generation has produced a legacy of lies and confusion that have captured the minds of many. Dr James wisely includes a chapter on false prophets, showing how the professing church has been undermined by imbibing the same lies.
