"Immensely rich insight, written nicely by a learned and penetrating thinker. This may be the best Christian reflection on the deeper questions around globalization, global culture wars and the great clash of civilizations I've yet seen. . . . If you've only got time for one book of this sort, pass by Chomsky and Perle. Skip narrow-minded ideologues like Michael Moore and Ann Coulter and read Meic Pearse. He is a thoughtful Christian who brings theological acumen and global sensitivities to his critique of modernity, and offers profound Christian insight as he unpacks the deep divides between the West and the rest."
"Those who wish to place some of the cultural crisis in the West in larger cultural and historical context will find much food for thought, and the book is useful for stimulating discussion. Whether one agrees with Pearse's analysis of Western culture, his assertion that non-Western values will increasingly demand serious attention in the West can hardly be disputed."
"This is . . . possibly the best, most intelligent, most humane brief argument that the West, rather than the Rest, needs reform."
"Meic Pearse has exposed our therapy culture in its failure to move us from self-absorption to the freedom of self-esteem found when we truly serve others. . . . This book is necessary reading for all who would be responsible leaders and informed Christians in the twenty-first century."
"I know of no more urgent discussion in our day. . . . Could someone please get a copy to George W. Bush?"
"This is a passionate, unfashionable and important book, recommended reading for anybody who has begun to suspect that the Western economic and cultural project is unsustainable."
"This book is a serious and stirring call to Christians to reaffirm the central position of their faith. In an age which mistakes nescience for open-mindedness and enforced nihilism for toleration, this call to know, to affirm and to witness deserves a wide audience."
"Meic Pearse specializes in asking difficult questions about the most significant issues facing us today--about religions, about politics, and about how cultures and societies come into conflict. . . . This is a challenging, provocative book, with a broad social and historical vision."
Bart Schairer5 Stars Out Of 5Great Perspective on Cultural DifferencesDecember 14, 2015Bart SchairerQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Why the Rest Hates the West does an excellent job of comparing and contrasting western culture to non-western cultures. About a third of the way into the book it would appear that the author gets off track, but he is providing a thorough foundation of where western culture started, before the Renaissance, and how it then changed and how it was drastically changed after the Industrial Revolution. In so doing he gives a most thorough history of the changes in our culture that have alienated us from others. Furthermore finally someone has explained to me why I so desperately wanted to leave the slow and backward small town I grew up in only to find the new, modern and fast-paced world in which I reside leaving me not only with children who live far away that I rarely see (with little chance of ever seeing grandchildren if I ever have any) but no other children in the neighborhood!
If you really want a good perspective on the tensions between world cultures, this book is an excellent resource that I would recommend to anyone.
