Does Christianity have a legitimate role to play in politics, business, law, medicine, journalism, and education? Or are secularists right when they relegate religion to the strictly private realm of ‘personal values’? Nancy Pearcey offers a razor-sharp analysis of the now accepted split between the public and private - revealing how every worldview (including secularism) is ultimately based on beliefs. A brilliant, intellectual read for Christian professionals who want to know how to extricate the gospel from issues of individual morality, and translate it into language and application suitable for the public square.

We’ve essentially traded our personhood for superpower, without realising the hidden trade-offs that diminish our 'muchness'.

Outlining three basic chapters in human history (creation, fall, and redemption), Wolters shows how defining the gospel in narrow and shallow ways discredit the breadth and depth of God’s redemptive plan.

This may require a counterintuitive approach to economic development, but one that will cause you to see opportunities where you might least expect them.”
