One Nation without God? The Battle for Christianity in an Age of Unbelief


Product Description

Christianity in America is under siege. From litigation over coaches starting games with prayer to expulsion from college for refusing to endorse beliefs at odds with the Christian faith, hardly a week goes by without news of the declining influence that Christianity has in the public square.

Can Christianity in this country survive the advances of secularists and remain influential in our culture? And if a new spiritual awakening is possible, what form will it take?

One Nation Without God leverages an astonishing parade of concrete examples and direct quotes from reporters, judges, bloggers, and influencers, to demonstrate the outright hostility towards Christianity in our culture.

David Aikman turns his journalist's eye on the rise of hostility toward Christian expression in America and the alarming decline of orthodox belief among those who call themselves Christians. He explores the inspiring history of Christianity in America, the powerful cultural influences that have weakened the church, and the bright spots of hope he sees across the country. Along the way, he suggests possible ways Christian influence in America might be refined and revived. Pastors, culture-watchers, and anyone concerned about the state of the church in America will find this a fascinating and eye-opening read.

    Aikman begins by reviewing the current literature on the state of Christianity in America, paying special attention to what has been written about American teens and young adults.

    He asks, "Was America ever a Christian nation?" If your criterion is that 90 percent of the population considered themselves Christians (even if they never went to church), then, Aikman writes, America was at one point Christian. But, others argue, if you mean the nation was a society reflecting the ideals of Scripture, then early America does not deserve to be called Christian. Aikman notes that Winthrop did desire to build such a state, with laws modeled on the Old Testament.

    He reviews the steady rise of opposition to Christianity in the U. S., describing the works of Hegel and Feuerbach and their effect on American universities. He traces the influence of Darwinism and follows the changes in the academic world and culture. He notes the influence of Billy Graham and then the erosion of respect for Christianity in the 1960s. He concludes that driving out religion, specifically Christianity, from higher education altogether succeeded to a large extent.

    Aikman writes that serious setbacks to Christianity can and have been reversed, such as the Wesleyan revival in England. This is not the end of the story for Christianity in America. He reports on the Chinese rediscovering God, the resurgence of theism in academic philosophy departments, the work of Christian campus organizations, and the renewed interest in Calvinism among the young.

    This is a good introductory review of Christianity in America. Those who have read a great deal on the topic may not find anything new here.

    The encouragement at the end of this book gives one hope. Christianity may be down, but it is not out.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book for the purpose of this review.
