GOD CREATED HUMANISM
The Christian Basis of Secular Values
Author: Theo Hobson
An account of the Christian values that underpin our public morality, showing how faith remains indispensable to western humanism, and how atheistic humanism represents a dead end. Here is an argument about religion and politics.
It suggests that although the public creed of the West is best described as ‘secular humanism’ we can only really understand and affirm secular humanism if we see how firmly it is based on Christian norms and values.
Theo Hobson offers a timely warning against the dangers of a religious-secular culture war, given the radically politicized and destructive forms of religion endemic in the world today.
