Jesus-Shaped Cultures: The Historical Impact of the Gospel

Description

Many key features of Western civilization—democracy, human rights, science, the free market, public education—are the legacy of the biblical faith being lived out by believers in society. Furthermore, this point is acknowledged by various historians and other scholars who are not theists at all. Moreover, these democratizing goods cannot be sustained through politics and legislative fiat because what gave rise to them is much deeper and far more transformative.
