What is the Christian worldview? What is modern materialism? In this concise, elegant discussion, worldviews are shown to answer six basic questions: What kind of world is this?

How do human beings fit in, and how did we come to be? What values are most worth holding, and what goals are most worth pursing? What is the best possible society, and how do we diagnose the differences between the ideal and the real? Can we build a better human world? And: is human nature good or corrupted in some way?

Worldviews shows how Christian theism and modern materialism supply incompatible answers to these questions. The two are currently locked into a struggle for dominance over Western culture. Dr. Yates shows how this struggle has affected the debates raging over abortion, education, individual freedoms, sexuality, and other issues. Dr. Yates argues that Western civilization-once known as Christendom-arose on a foundation of Christian theism that gave rise to the greatest country that ever existed: the United States of America, a Constitutional republic founded on the rights of the individual, personal moral responsibility, limitations on government, and respect for the rule of law.

Yet as materialism captured first the intelligentsia and then, gradually, the rest of the culture, this changed. Dr. Yates believes that as materialism has more and more become the dominant worldview in the West, our foundations have eroded, and along with them, our entire quality of life. Sin manifests itself in many ways, and one of these is the desire for power on the part of a few. Dr. Yates documents the rise of a powerful few who threaten to undermine everything that madeAmerica unique and special. He argues that the effects of modern materialism on Western culture have been catastrophic, and that we should recover the worldview of Christian theism before it is too late
