Pastor and scholar Dr. John H. Ludlum Jr was intensely fascinated with the "bedrock" foundations of existing philosophical and theological thought. This passion led him to write extensively for such publications as the RCA Church Herald, Christian News and Christianity Today. King Secularism-the first of a three-volume exposition on Christian Apologetics- is Dr. Ludlum's first major published work, a comprehensive, meticulously researched counterassault against the invasion of "intellectual, moral, and religious Nihilism." Dr. Ludlum investigates the history of the processes that initiated the mounting disbelief in deific purpose by today's secular, relativist ideologists. His observations and insights reveal a deep passion for the subject matter, as well as a notable sadness for the increasingly desperate enemies of anything even tangentially divine in nature or substance. Brilliant in execution, unparalleled in scope, King Secularism, and doubtless its companion volumes, will stand as a seminal work in the field of Apologetics.
