"Is secularism a positive force in the modern world? Or does it lead to fragmentation and disintegration? ... Pearcey depicts the revolutionary thinkers and artists, the ideas and events, leading step by step to the unleashing of secular worldviews that undermine human dignity and liberty. She crafts a fresh approach that exposes the real-world impact of ideas in philosophy, science, art, literature, and film--voices that surround us in the classroom, in the movie theater, and in our living rooms. A former agnostic, Pearcey offers a persuasive case for historic Christianity as a holistic and humane alternative. She equips readers to counter the life-denying worldviews that are radically restructuring society and pervading our daily lives..."--Dust cover flap.

Ms Pearcy stated her case, but I felt the exposition was rather muddled. The most definite idea I got from the book was that she liked Bach--a lot.
I did appreciate her comments in several places that people should not ban books/movies/games because they disagreed with them, but should use them as springboards for studying why they did not fit into their particular world view.
And I agree with her outrage at the way Hank the Cowdog had been gutted in the name of whatever the network people thought was necessary.
