Item Description...
When this brilliant and prophetic book was first published in 1961, the Christian homeschool movement was years away and even Christian day schools were hardly considered a viable educational alternative. But this book and the authors later Messianic Character of American Education were a resolute call to arms for Christians to get their children out of the pagan public schools and provide them with a genuine Christian education. Dr. Rushdoony had predicted that the humanist system, based on anti-Christian premises of the Enlightenment, could only get worse. Rushdoony was indeed a prophet. He knew that education divorced from God and from all transcendental standards would produce the educational disaster and moral barbarism we have today. The title of this book is particularly significant in that Dr. Rushdoony was able to identify the basic contradiction that pervades a secular society that rejects Gods sovereignty but still needs law and order, justice, science, and meaning to life. As Dr. Rushdoony writes, "there is no law, no society, no justice, no structure, no design, no meaning apart from God." And so, modern man has become schizophrenic because of his rebellion against God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Wonderfully enlightening  May 16, 2007
Rousas John Rushdoony (1916-2001) was a Christian pastor, theologian, and philosopher, and the founder of the Chalcedon Foundation. In 1961, he published this prophetic book. In it, Rev. Rushdoony argues that the modern humanist system is ultra-statist cosmopolitan in that it aspires to create man whose home is the one-world, and as such is by nature hostile to home, community and church. The state-run school then must subscribe to a "blank-slate" view of children, who require conditioning to break them of any backward looking, localist attachments. However, human beings never are blank slates, and as such the educational establishment creates a form of intellectual schizophrenia among its students.

And what is the end result of the modern, public, humanistic educational project? "A culture not convinced of its own value is incapable of its own defense. Its energy is replaced by apathy, and its convictions by the torments of self-analysis." Does this not sound like the modern American war on terrorism?

Overall, I found this to be a fascinating book. When it was written it was forward looking to the point of being prophetic. Now, more than 40 years later, this book is a clear and cogent explanation of the development of the modern world, of how we got from World War II to the War on Terror. I found this book wonderfully enlightening, and I give it my highest recommendations!
